Bubble Soccer, The World’s Most Fun Workout

It is that time of year again when we make goals and resolve to live a better life in the coming year. One of the ways a majority of us do this is to commit to making more time for physical fitness and healthy habits. Most people lace up their running shoes and hit the pavement or sign up for a new class, maybe try a new video series at home. May we suggest bubble soccer? It is a great way to get in a workout and have fun at the same time. You may even find yourself enjoying it so much you will want to come back and work out some more.Bubble Soccer, The World's Most Fun Workout

On average you can burn around 12 to 18 calories a minute running. Add sprinting and carrying a large blow-up bubble soccer suit and you can easily increase your calorie burn and sweat. Play a one hour game and you have burned about a week’s worth of calories all while having fun and no doubt laughing your head off at the same time.

Bubble soccer isn’t just exercising it is a game. Get lost in the game and having fun knocking down your friends and laughing as you watch them try to get back up or die of laughter trying to get back up yourself. Before you know it you will be a sweaty yet happy messy thinking that that was the fastest hour you have ever lived. You will have so much fun you will be sad the game is over.

Once you have burned a whole week’s calories you will go about the rest of your day burning calories at a faster rate than normal an added bonus to your super fun workout. Bubble soccer is a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout. A HIIT workout can have you burning extra calories for up to 38 hours after you are finished. The extra challenge in the exercise means your body needs to work harder on the restorative process, making bubble soccer one of the best workouts for faster results.

The Top 4 Reasons Bubble Soccer is Meant For YOU

The Top 4 Reasons Bubble Soccer is Meant For YOU

If we are being completely honest, some of us, including myself, might be a little scared and even, dare I say, intimidated to put on our big kid pants and finally take a leap and try to play a game of Bubble Soccer. While it may look fun to fly through the air in what is quite literally a giant inflated bubble suit, that could also, for lack of a better word, be slightly scary, I’m here to tell you this; don’t let your thoughts or fears hold you back! There are dozens of reasons why Bubble Soccer is a hysterically fun life experience that you don’t want to pass by. For starters:

Be Lean

The movements that are required to play Bubble Soccer are great for burning off that excess weight we so happily put on over the Holiday’s. Get rid of that second or maybe even third plate of your favorite holiday meal and tone your muscles.

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

There is a huge difference between trying to explain a beautiful exotic vacation in detail and showing a photograph of the beautiful beaches you visited. The same goes for all adventures in life. You can try to explain a Bubble Soccer adventure, but truly, a photo of you wearing a bubble suit will out do any story. Play the game and be sure to get some photos and videos while you’re at it.

Heart and Lung Health

We’ve all heard the sayings, whether in a magazine, from parents, and sometimes even on the TV, they talk about how often we should be hitting the gym, how we should be eating more greens, drinking more water and getting more sleep, however, we don’t hear much about how we can help our heart and lungs maintain great health. Many of the movements involved in Bubble Soccer require high amounts of effort and specific motions that help your heart and lungs function more efficiently. Sign me up!

Do The Splits

Who doesn’t want to be able to do the splits or just be more flexible in general? I know I sure do! Well in case you aren’t already sold, between all of the walking, sprinting and even running, you can not only form stronger bones, but also by playing you can even enhance your flexibility which in some cases can even contribute to a healthier blood flow! When was the last time you played a game that also offered such great health benefits?

It’s time to come out of your shell, leave any and all fears or doubts behind, and sign up for your Bubble Soccer Adventure. We have one beautiful life and we should enjoy every minute of it. Make memories that will last a lifetime and give you stories to tell for years to come. With so many incredible benefits to offer there is nothing to lose but everything to gain by participating and playing in a game of Bubble Soccer.

What is Bubble Soccer Really Like?

Bubble soccer is a great way to have some fun with family and friends no matter the occasion. If you have never played  bubble soccer before you may be wanting to ask a person who has what it is really like to be inside an inflatable ball type apparatus chasing after a soccer ball.

Based on feedback from actual bubble ball players here is what you can expect when playing bubble ball.  What is Bubble Soccer Really Like?

  • You will find yourself laughing hysterically at some point in the game
  • It is actually fun to fall over. Some players said they thought is was scary on the first fall, but once they experienced falling it did not hurt and was part of the fun of the game.
  • It is easy to get back up after falling  without help in most cases.
  • It is very fun and you get a rush when you kick the ball especially if you end up scoring a goal.
  • It is an amazing workout because the game requires a lot of energy,
  • Bubble soccer gives you the chance to be a kid again and participate in something that seems only possible in a story
  • There is no need to be a soccer pro or have any experience with the game, the facilitator makes everyone aware of the game rules and it’s just good fun.

Though bubble ball is one of the funniest  and most fun games you will ever play there are some things to be aware of to be best prepared for your time inside the plastic bubble.

  • The ball is made of plastic and you are running around at high energy so it will get hot inside the ball
  • The bubble can get smelly especially if you play after someone else
  •  Though the bubble looks weightless because it is full of air it is heavier than most people expect it to be
  • If you are claustrophobic you may want to ask if you can simply try the bubble ball on for a few minutes to see if it is something you really want to do. It can get tight inside the ball.
  • If you are not very tall it can take some extra effort to get back up after falling

One bubble ball player described his first bubble ball game in these words:

“ Played bubble soccer for the first time ever today, and it was much tougher than all of us expected! I played a mini tournament, and we ultimately made each game shorter and shorter because of how exhausted everyone was. ………………….

……….To sum it up though, definitely worth all the energy expended! These games are hilarious.”

The positives of bubble soccer definitely outweigh any small negative aspects of the game. It is certainly fun to play and to watch when you have a great company with safe equipment facilitating.

Bubble soccer is a safe and healthy way to get out and laugh yourself silly while burning some calories. For more information on playing a game of bubble soccer in Springfield please browse our website then give us a call.
