Yup, it’s that time of year! Whether you’ve vowed to get fit, save money, or reduce your environmental footprint in 2019, riding a Razor can help you accomplish all your New Year’s goals. How? Well…
According to the American Automobile Association, the average American driver spends roughly 280 hours in the car. Add the time you spend sitting in front of your computer, tablet, and phone and you’ve got the makings of a seriously sedentary lifestyle. Not only can physical inactivity lead to serious health consequences, including cardiovascular diseases, heart diseases, even certain types of cancer, but lack of exercise can also contribute to anxiety and depression. No wonder getting into shape tops the lists of resolutions year after year! Luckily, you don’t have to join a gym or buy expensive equipment to kickstart your exercise program. Just hop on a Razor! Vow to scoot around the block once today, twice tomorrow, and so on. Scooting burns fat, builds muscle in your back, buttocks, thighs, and calves, and gets your heart pumping. Plus, the whole family can get in on the fitness fun!
With gas nearing an average of $3 per gallon (and costing much more in some states), filling up the tank takes a big-time toll on your bottom line! Public transportation can be a more cost-effective option, but it takes more time than driving and doesn’t always go exactly where you need to be. Enter the scooter solution! Riding a Razor scooter is a great way to get where you’re going quickly and inexpensively. This year, strap on your backpack and run your local errands on your scooter – or fold it up, stash it in your pack, and climb aboard the bus, then scoot from the closest stop to your ultimate destination. Razor’s easy-folding frame and quiet, comfortable ride makes scooting a great alternative to driving – and saves you mega moolah!
Unless you’re driving an electric or hybrid vehicle, your car is likely emitting somewhere around 4.6 metric tons (yes TONS) of carbon dioxide every year. Carbon dioxide creates greenhouse gasses that trap extra heat, aka, global warming. Automobiles also emit volatile organic compounds that mix with other gunk in the air to cause smog. Oh, and don’t forget carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and other pollutants that dirty our air and damage our environment. Auto emissions also contribute to serious health issues. Cutting back on driving by running local errands on a Razor scooter instead is a great way to do your part to minimize the impact of harmful exhaust fumes. And it’s fun!
From saving money to cutting back on emissions and getting your family in shape, riding a Razor scooter is a fun and easy way to rock your New Year’s Resolutions.
