Staying Fit with E-boards

Although some naysayers may object. That said, riding an electric skateboard can significantly improve your cardiovascular health and fitness levels. Just because a motor is helping you doesn't in any way diminish the fact that you're moving body parts and taking big gulps of fresh air. If you just purchased an e-board or are looking for a new fitness strategy to incorporate your old one, check out these six suggestions.

Using an electric skateboard as part of your daily commute

If you usually drive to work, choosing to ride a commuter electric skateboard is not only good for the environment, but it can also help you stay healthy. Unless you work from home, in which case riding an Electric Skateboard downstairs is not very convenient.

Still, for all other purposes, motorized skateboards are still a great transportation option that can keep you active while the included motor provides some assistance when needed. Riding an electric longboard also means it's not as strenuous as riding a regular skateboard, so you sweat a lot less. Trust us: your coworkers will thank you.

Track your activity

When trying to stay healthy, it's important to track your calorie intake and physical activity. If you're at the stage where you're weighing your food and writing it down, you know how painful it can be.

The components of your physical activity, like your calorie burn, your heart rate, oxygen levels and effort used, are very, very difficult to track. But they're important because they can show you areas to focus on, such as improving your breathing or increasing your speed so you burn more calories. No matter what you need to track, there's an accessory or app that can get the job done. So grab your watch or phone, get on your electric skateboard and start watching the numbers.

Go to the store

Put on your helmet, put on your backpack, and ride your skateboard to the store. You'll find that not only do you get some exercise throughout the day, but you also enjoy some fresh air and sunshine. Less groceries = less money spent = healthier choices.
