General Health

Should you ride an electric scooter?

As well as being fitness freaks here at NNSC we are also pretty passionate about being Eco friendly and health in general. One of the things we have started noticing lately in Dublin is the huge amount of electric scooters on the road. For those of you who are not familiar as they are quite a new addition to today’s ever changing world an electric scooter is a 2 wheel device with a single board on which to stand on that is powered by an electric motor.

Why are they so popular I hear you ask? Well they are a really cool well to travel around but other than that they will save you money on fuel and they are also a big help to the environment which is why we love them here at NNSC. If people started commuting to work or to us here in the gym :) instead of using their cars imagine how much they would cut down on their emissions.

By using an electric scooter you will essentially have no emissions and you will save on your fuel costs. We even have people here at the gym who have started using these electric scooters for adults instead of their cars and only use their cars when really necessary. We think this is great here at the gym as a lot of people would rather cycle which is also great but by using an electric scooter you are not getting into work all sweaty and can just wear your normal clothes instead of dressing like Tour De France :P.

Apparently you will be able to rent these electric scooters soon in Dublin so there will be no excuse to at least try them! One of the members here at NNSC owns the escooterstore.ie who are one of the first people to bring the electric scooter to Ireland so a big shout out to them!
