Too Cold For The Outdoor Courts? Try NYHRC’s Indoor Basketball Courts
New York winters are among the most beautiful in the world, yet there is a downside to those gorgeous snow-filled landscapes. Between the blustering wind and the snow melting, trying to do your favorite outdoor activities becomes miserable. The good news is that you don’t have to let your skills on the court waste away during the winter. Instead, you can head to indoor basketball courts residents use to stay warm and to keep their game on point.
Avoid Injury Delays
The winter weather generates new risks on outdoor courts. Just as rain creates a slippery surface during the spring and summer, it gets even worse when ice and snow arrive. Our indoor courts are cleaned regularly throughout the day so that you always have a safe place to play that prevents delays in your progress from injuries.
Challenge Yourself With New Competition
Playing a few rounds with your buddies is a great way to refine your skills. Yet, you quickly fall into a routine when you know how he or she alway passes the ball a certain way or fails to get those rebounds. At our health club in NYC, you can meet new practice partners and even engage in a few matches that help you learn how to anticipate unfamiliar plays. Challenging yourself against other players gives you an edge on any court. We also have freakquent 3 on 3 basketballl tournaments. Stay tuned for the latest competetions by signing up for our newsletter or going to NYHRC.com/Basketball.
Round Out Your Skills With Strength Training
During your time at the gym, you can also check out programs that help you gain an even bigger edge on the competition. Independent and group strength training programs help you to build the muscles you need to perform that perfect jump shot and run faster down the court. If you play semi-professionally, then you can also work with a personal trainer to identify your weak spots and build them up while the rest of your competition takes a winter day off.
Never Skip a Practice Session
It’s easy to put off a practice session when the temperature drops, but you’ll feel motivated to throw on your court shoes when you have a perfectly climatized gym to head to. Since you can reserve a court, you never have to worry about it being taken over by other people when you want to arrange a practice game. You’ll also find that amenities such as a sports massage afterward help you to get revved up for your practice.
When those cold winds blow, be sure to head on into the gym for a practice session in an indoor court. From engaging in a 3-on-3 competition to just shooting a few hoops, you’ll stay on top of your game throughout the winter season.
