“I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Dad Central for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
I am so happy to be an ambassador for Discover Boating! Summer is here and that means it’s time to get the whole family excited about getting on the water. Discover Boating is the U.S. recreational boating industry’s nonprofit awareness program to help people get on the water to experience the fun of boating. For those looking to get their feet wet, DiscoverBoating.com is an unbiased online resource to explore the enjoyment and accessibility of the boating lifestyle. Packed with easy, interactive features to familiarize people with all aspects of life on the water, DiscoverBoating.com offers a boat selector guide, cost comparison tool, renting options, favorite boating destinations, links to education courses – even nautical lingo and how-to videos. Plus, DiscoverBoating.com offers tools and information for experienced boaters looking to learn more.
When you are a part of the Discover Boating family, you’ll also learn value of a relaxing day out on the water. You will soon realize that the many health benefits of boating extend beyond the mental break from the daily grind. Depending on the water and the size of your boat, just keeping upright in a boat can be one heck of a core abdominal workout! For a little more excitement, you can also throw in some fun activities like fishing, tubing, or wakeboarding.
A day in the sun also allows for our bodies to soak up a safe amount of Vitamin D. Data collected from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) found that 9% of children across the USA were vitamin D deficient, while another 61 percent were vitamin D insufficient. Spending at least 15 minutes with skin exposed to the sun dramatically decreases these numbers and give our bodies exactly what they need.
So ditch the gym membership and spend more time on the water this summer!
