A new way to keep your New Year’s resolutions
While you might not need to yield a bow and arrow to defeat brain-eating zombies anytime soon, there are still plenty of benefits to learning archery.
First, it improves your focus and your ability to stay calm in high pressure situations.
Archery also uses the arms, core, chest and shoulders, especially when practicing how to shoot your arrow correctly. In the long run, this improves upper strength.
Who knows, maybe archery could be the new fitness activity you didn’t know you needed to stick to your New Year’s resolution to stay in shape.
Now that Sentosa has extended its free admission promotion until the end of March, there are even fewer obstacles to getting there.
