Since my daughters have had scooters, I always wondered what it would be like to get an adult scooter. I see them so happy and free when they are using theirs that I wanted to experience that same feeling too! Micro kindly sent me an adult scooter to try and you are not going to believe how excited I was. I really felt that my life was going to change and therefore I really didn’t want to wait any minute before trying it out.
Since I got the Micro Flex scooter in cream, I have noticed lots of different benefits for me and my family. I never thought that it could be something more than just having fun with my girls! I really love it and I would like to tell you why! So below you will find 10 reasons why you should get an adult scooter too:
1. IT IS SO MUCH FUN
I never thought that I would actually enjoy riding a scooter so much but I must admit, it is one of the best things I have ever tried! I am now wondering why I didn’t try it before! It is so nice to be out and about, feeling the wind blowing through your face and hair like I was a child again! It brings me back to my childhood days and that sense of freedom!
2. YOU CAN ARRIVE QUICKER/ON TIME TO PLACES
This is one of my favourite reasons why I like scooting. I am always running around trying to arrive to places on time but with the scooter, I can manage to arrive not just on time but even earlier than I need to. This is such a highlight for me and I love it!
3. THE SCHOOL AND NURSERY RUN ARE QUICKER AND LESS STRESSFUL
I cannot emphasise enough how amazing this is! How many times do you feel incredibly stressed because you are running late to get to school when you are driving and have to wait at many stop lights or perhaps you are walking but your little ones are too slow when walking. Plus walking sometimes can be a little bit boring so if you add the scooter to your school/nursery run then things get even more exciting!
4. LOTS OF HEALTHY BENEFITS FOR YOU
You won’t believe how good an exercise scooting is! You will burn a lot of calories doing it. I did think I was going to feel something as of course, I was using the muscles of my legs in a different way, but wow I really underestimated it! You can really feel that you are exercising all your body very well! Immediately after I started scooting I could feel my body aching and I was so happy that doing something that is so much fun would also give me many health benefits too.
Scooting is low-impact and low-intensity, so your heart rate usually stays in the 60-70% of maximum range, which is where you burn some fat for fuel. However total calorie expenditure is the key component of consistent weight loss which you will get by scooting! You can increase core strength too! So you can see how good it is for you.
5. YOU WILL SAVE ON PETROL AND HELP WITH THE ENVIRONMENT
Since using the scooter to get around locally, I have pretty much stopped using the car during the week unless I have to travel further. This has amazingly reduced what we spend on petrol as now we don’t need to fill up so often, so yeey for this!
Of course, driving less will mean less pollution for our city although I have a hybrid car, I always think that minimising the use of the car is always good for the environment.
6. WILL KEEP YOU MORE CONNECTED WITH YOUR KIDS
It is amazing how much fun it can be to scoot with your kids. Every time that the girls and I go out on the scooter we don’t stop smiling! We get this connection between each other. It is really lovely to be able to have this feeling with them! I can definitely confirm that it strengthens us as a family.
We only have one adult scooter, so Nick and I have been sharing it but I know he feels the same way! So now we are contemplating getting a scooter for him so we can go out and about the four of us on scooters! I really love this idea.
7. IT IS EASY TO CARRY AND STORE
The scooter is so easy to carry with you because you can fold it in such a way that makes it easy to transport it everywhere. This, of course, is one of its best features because living in an apartment makes the space to store things even more difficult.
This is how the scooter comes as soon as you get it out of the box
Folding the scooter only takes seconds to do. It is very easy. Of course, you need some practice at the start but once you understand how it works, it is super quick to do.
This is another great reason why we bring our scooters with us in the car when we go away. They fit perfectly in the boot.
8. YOU CAN USE IT ALL YEAR ROUND
I have been using the scooter for several weeks now and I have been using it in so many different types of weather. Obviously you should be more careful about scooting with some weather. So for example, I have scooted during a rainy day, during a very windy day, during a sunny but cold day and even during a really hot day. This is proof that you can use it at any time, no matter the weather but always with caution.
9. IT SUITS THE WHOLE FAMILY
It is fantastic that we all can use a scooter! My girls already have their Micro scooters. Bella got a new Micro Scooter last year which she loves so much. Micro has a huge range of scooters for all ages, from little ones up to adults! So there is no excuse for the whole family to have a great time scooting together! We have been doing that lately, so every time that we visit the in-laws we take our scooters with us. It is always nice to get out of London for a few days and feel the fresh air of the English countryside. It is so much fun!
10. IT IS SUPER COOL
And last but not least, it is the COOLEST thing ever! I must admit that I feel so young when I am scooting. The funny thing is that since I am using my scooter, there is always someone looking at us. I bet they are thinking how lovely it is to be able to spend time together as a family in that way! I promise you, it will make you feel super cool too, LOL!
Do you like scooters? Do you have an adult scooter too? If not, will you consider getting one? What do you think of the scooter I got?
*Disclosure: I was sent an adult scooter for the purpose of this blog post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
