It doesn't matter how old you are, playing Disc Golf is not only fun, but it's a way to get a little exercise in, because you are constantly on the move. Now, I'm not saying you'll get your heart rate up a lot, unless you miss an easy shot, but, you will do some walking depending on the course. Here in Abilene, we have several courses. In fact, you can check out my blog on the best Disc Golf courses in Abilene by clicking the link below.

Martial Arts of any kind will not only help you lose weight, but it also teaches you to defend yourself if you have to, which effectively raises your self esteem.
