4. Try action sports

Sports such as MMA, paddle boarding, boxing, surfing and skateboarding may traditionally belong to the boys, but girls are really getting into the action activities, which can give you a great cardio and core workout while pushing your physical and mental limits. And nothing turns a guy on more than seeing a woman whizz past on a skateboard.

Man up: Book yourself in for three to five beginners’ classes – in different sports! And we’re not talking badminton; channel your inner Million Dollar Baby in the boxing ring, take someone down with MMA, try your hand at the half-pipe on a skateboard, or hit the beach with a surfboard. Gnarly.
