These days many people are looking for an alternative to going to the gym. Whether they are tired of the gym atmosphere, need a change in their fitness regimen or are simply looking for another activity to go alongside their regular workout, axe throwing is a great activity for a new challenge! With so many different games that can be played and the wide variety of throws one can master, or even creatively design, you will never be bored with this sport.
Axe throwing has been around for a long, long time. In the early colonial period, tossing axes was an enjoyable and exciting past time people engaged in. Throughout history, axe throwers developed different rules to govern the activity, and came up with new challenges to better themselves and the activity. It has now become an increasingly popular sport that is participated in by men, women and children of all ages.

Rochelle King had never thrown an axe before November. Now it’s quite literally her job.
King’s an assistant manager at Axehole, which offers a different sort of night out to anyone interested in outdoor activities, but less interested having to leave the city limits. Located west of Kingsway Mall, it’s a place to learn how to throw a variety of axes in a variety of ways, basically taking one of outdoor camping’s most sacred rites and placing it in an indoor (and, uh, much safer) facility.
