More and more people have started to use their scooters for both fitness and commuting. All with good reason! Just a couple of weeks into 2020, you might already be starting to slip up on your New Years resolutions. Starting to scoot is one change you can make that will help you stick to the goals you set yourself for this year. Here are five reasons why.
1. Be Healthier
Combine your commute with your New Year resolutions of finally getting fit. Don’t force yourself to go to the gym but combine a fun workout with day-to-day tasks. Get outside and burn calories while getting to work on your adult kick-scooter! The low impact cardio is perfect to work your quads, glutes and core. Especially when you sit down a lot in the office, it’s a great way to add a little exercise at the start and end of each day.
2. Save Money
A good quality scooter might seem like a bit of an investment at first, but just think about how much money you spend your car, transport and a gym membership every month. A long-lasting and quality product always represents better value as it will last for 1000s of miles. Look for a scooter with a good quality frame and a design where the perishable parts like tyres and brake pads can easily be replaced, like all kick scooters from Swifty!
3. Reduce your carbon footprint
The environment seems to finally start becoming more important to people. As a community, we’re slowly trying to reduce our waste and our carbon footprint. Swapping your car journey for public transport is a great first step, but changing it for an emission-free alternative is even better.
4. Make your commute easier and more fun
5. Help to reduce the congestion inside the city
Rush hour inside the city centre is a nightmare, we can all agree on that. Buses and cars get stuck in traffic, the metro is packed and the train doesn't arrive on time. With a scooter, you can easily avoid this hassle by choosing back streets and canal paths for a stress-free commute. You can also feel safe in the knowledge that by scooting you're not contributing any harmful emissions in your city.
