6x Outdoor Sports & Exercises
Now that the gyms are closed, we go on walks en masse. But did you know that Eindhoven is perfect for all kinds of outdoor sports and exercises? From urban sports to online yoga, we have selected six sports for you to try!
Basketball is a team effort, but some personal practice won't hurt. EMOVES, a cooperative between Dynamo, Area51, and The Ruggeds, has put all urban sports venues in Eindhoven on an urban map. Find a basketball court or pole and practice your dribble and dunk.
Are you willing to go the extra mile? Then put on your running shoes. The city has a lot of greenery, and in every dynamic district, there is a suitable place to practice this outdoor sport. Using the Strava app, you can plan your routes and track your running activity and of previous runners. Cyclists can use the app too.
Not only good for the body but also the mind: yoga. Yoga is known to strengthen your muscles, improve your posture, and reduce stress. Worth a try! You can easily follow a lesson from home by one of the Eindhoven studios. Book an online class of Yin Yang Yoga at Mudita Yoga or the online slow detox flow by BY VEDA.
As a city of urban sports, freerunning cannot be missing from this list. The great thing about this sport is that you can practice it almost anywhere. The city is your playground! When the gyms are open again, we would like to recommend Commit040, the place to be to improve your freerun skills.
Due to the coronavirus COVID-19, we will inspire you as much as possible with background stories and tips of things that you can do to experience Eindhoven in a safe way. More information on the measures in Eindhoven and the Netherlands can be found here.
