You can use a kayak in almost any body of water; ocean, lake, dam, pool (well, large pool). Again, there are different uses within all those waters ranging from marathon racing to water polo or leisure paddling. First timers and learners are advised to keep of deep and violent waters, and always accompany a friend who has a good grip on kayaking or knows their way around water. Make sure you also take a handheld GPS for fishing if you want to get your bait and never lose your favorite spot.

7. Tone Your Tummy

Any fitness trainer will tell you that abs is the hardest group of muscles to work out. It is so difficult to get nice-looking and firm abs given that the area around the stomach is usually packed with hard-to-eliminate fats. You can however get that six-pack within a very short amount of time with kayaking. The rotational paddling movements you make during kayaking give your core muscles quite some good demanding exercise. This will also give your biceps and triceps an excellent workout, leaving you with bulky and firm looking arms.
