If you live in Singapore, you no doubt have witnessed or know several people who are have taken to jogging in the mornings, evenings and sometimes even in the afternoons. Jogging is big in Singapore. This is especially with Singapore being a sort of top tourist destination, for those tourists who are interested in all matters sport. Many athletes come from far and wide to train at the lovely island of Singapore, making it a hub of intense training as well as chilled out jogging.
Jogging in Singapore is an activity that is widely accepted, and even more widely performed. Singaporeans of all ages and all walks take part in jogging at one point of their lives. It is a particularly attractive activity for professional athletes from all over the world. It is not uncommon to see fashionable young mothers taking their babies jogging in their top rated jogging strollers. Seasoned and occasional joggers; as well as hikers, bikers and mountaineers also take part in the fun exercise.
Most of those who jog, at whatever time, seem to have certain reasons for doing so. Some jog to keep fit-as jogging is an efficient form of exercise that enables the jogger put in the required work out. Others do it as a way to challenge themselves. Singapore is a pretty hot place, so jogging would not really be the easiest thing to do. Those who want to push themselves, and challenge their physical fitness may take to jogging in Singapore. There are those also who are lovers of nature, and take a regular jog so as to take in the scenic view. As it is a developed country, Singapore is mostly a concrete jungle, which may drain a nature lover. But in the midst of all the grey of building stones, Singapore has some pretty awesome jogging and running trails. These are usually far from the tall buildings, and allow joggers to take their run under the cover of trees-some of which are within jungles. These jogging trails are a welcome relief from the heat of Singapore.
While on the topic of jogging trails, I should mention that these trails are open to just about anyone who wants to take a jog. There are many different trails and routes which can be short or long-ranging from three kilometres to twenty one kilometres and cater to any type of jogger. These trails are scenic and simply delightful.
As with other sports, one needs to be careful as they go for a jog. Singapore can get swelteringly hot, which would cause one to perspire a lot. This requires that one wears appropriate clothing and shoes. It is also important for one to see their doctor and personal trainer before deciding that they should take up jogging. It never hurts to get an okay from the appropriate people. Enjoy a jog soon, will you?
