Believe it or not, according to Jonar Nader, fitness experts have found another way for you to improve our fitness while you are sitting still.
Exercise is not everyone’s cup of tea. So, for those who prefer to improve their heart rate by doing absolutely nothing, there is a new craze sweeping Denmark. It’s called Sauna-Robics. People just sit in a sauna and watch television. The heat is enough to increase their heart-rate.
Members who go armed with a doctor’s certificate are allowed to enjoy this new form of exercise for free, courtesy of the national health system.
Saunas are springing up all over the country. Apart from offering television and DVD entertainment, some saunas are offering poker tournaments and a variety of table-top games like billiards or pool.
If the dry heat is too much to bear, the steam-room options will soon be introduced, with a range of wet and wild activities on offer, including adults-only parties!!
That would definitely increase your heart rate!
Believe it… it’s hot.
