5 Extreme Hobbies You Should Try At Least Once


Everyone has at least a couple of hobbies they like to engage in when they have free time. Whether you enjoy staying at home and doing something relaxing, or you prefer getting outside of your comfort zone and being more adventurous, there are many different hobbies out there and you never know if you’ll like something or not until you try it. Here are some extreme hobbies you should try at least once in your lifetime.


You may think shooting is only reserved for hunting or self defense, but it can also be a great hobby for people who need to blow off a little steam. You might consider buying a gun and learning how to shoot it properly and safely, and then taking it to your local shooting range to try it out. It is so satisfying when you improve your aim and hit the targets that you might become hooked right away!


Truly nothing beats the thrill of skydiving, especially when you’re new at it. This extreme hobby is the closest you will ever get to flying and it is an experience you will never forget in your life. Just make sure you go with a professional and are aware of all of the rules and safety precautions, because part of what makes it so exhilarating is that there is a little bit of danger involved.

Pole Dancing

Pole dancing may sound a little risqué or you may think of it as a hobby reserved for strippers and burlesque dancers, but it is actually a lot of fun! Not only that but it is an excellent workout and will help you get in touch with your more sensual side and boost your self esteem.

Check your area for available spots in local pole dancing classes and then watch as your body becomes more flexible and is able to move in ways you didn’t realize were possible. Who knows, you may end up liking it so much you will want to have a pole installed in your own home!

Rock Climbing

Though rock climbing is primarily an outdoor hobby that you may have to travel outside of town for and won’t be able to partake in all the time, there are many rock climbing simulations at gyms and other facilities in most cities that was be just as fun and challenging, yet much more accessible. These indoor rock climbing courses are a good way to practice before you go out and do the real thing, but it’s still important to remember that you will need to get some safety training and invest in the proper equipment before going out on your own.

No matter what new hobby you decide to try, get out of your comfort zone a little. Trying new things is the best way to discover things you really like to do!
