HEALTH BENEFITS OF SHOOTING

Shooting activities can be a lot of fun but did you know shooting can also be good for your health?

As a recreational activity shooting can be a stress-relieving adventure, helping the individual both physically and mentally. Shooting activities include rifle shooting, clay and laser shooting, laser tag and archery.

The physical benefits include developing good posture, increased body strength – strong sturdy arms and hands, improving stamina and attention to hand-eye coordination whilst improving fine motor skills. Keeping your eyes on the target while taking aim requires focus. Giving your eyes a break from staring at computers, TVs, mobiles and tablets, helps to exercise the eye muscles and relieves associated eye stress.

Shooting sports also sharpen and expand your level of concentration, introducing problem solving mathematical logic and creative thinking. These exhilarating sports boost confidence and self-esteem whilst releasing adrenaline. Adrenaline makes the heartbeat faster, increases blood flow to the brain and muscles, and stimulates the body to make sugar to use for fuel.
