Why Jog?

There are many different benefits to jogging, and every jogger soon learns that there are so many reasons to start the practice.

Physical Benefits

The most obvious benefit to jogging is all of the positive physical changes that will occur. When you start a regular jogging practice, you will maintain a healthy weight, look younger and more vibrant, have increased energy, have an improved muscle tone, and decrease the risk of high blood pressure or heart disease.

Mental Benefits

Jogging can greatly help your ability to focus and think clearly. Going for a jog is a great way to clear your mind. Jogging is also a great way to cope with stress as many people say it helps them to deal with their stress. Plus, it just feels good to go for a jog at the end of a long day of staring at a computer all day.

Social Benefits

Jogging with a group of people like the Pine Joggers is a great way to meet like-minded people. Having a group of friends you can always jog with will give you more motivation to keep the practice up as well.

Connect with Nature

One of the best parts of our meet ups is that we allow people the opportunity to jog outside in one of the most beautiful forests in the world: the New Jersey Pine Barrens. When you jog outside, you are able to breathe in the clean air, connect with the natural landscapes that are all around you, and you are able to get a great view especially if you are jogging in beautiful surroundings.
