Four Outdoor Exercises You’ll Love

By on 03/29/2018

Have the dark, dreary days of winter made you slack off on your commitment to exercise? Does the thought of another day at the gym or on the treadmill make you want to stay glued to your couch?

If so, dust off your excuses! It’s time to enjoy exercise outside.

Here are four ways to get moving while enjoying some fresh air:

  1. Enjoy the playground. Feel like a kid again as you go up and down the slide, traverse the monkey bars or pump your legs while on a swing.
  2. Have a ball. Enjoy a casual catch with your kids or try to perfect your lay-up on the basketball court.
  3. Get on your bike. There’s nothing like the wind rushing through your hair at the end of a long day. Biking is a low-impact exercise that gets your heart pumping.
  4. Dust off a racquet. Grab a friend and head to an outdoor court for a game of tennis or pickleball.

Don’t miss out on these benefits associated with exercising outdoors:
