10 ways to get active outdoors!


When working out in the gym gets stale, or it’s a beautiful day outside and you don’t want be stuck within four walls, consider one of these ten ways get active and get out:

1. Create a walking club. Get a group of neighborhood friends and walk together. You can walk to other friends’ houses and pick them up along the way.
2. Dance in the park! Summertime means live music in many city parks. Find one and kick up your heels.
3. Create teams with friends. Put out an email to your friends or the parents in your children’s classrooms or baseball and see if anyone wants to meet for volley ball at the beach or flag football at the park. Follow up with a barbecue.
4. Take your home equipment outside. A stability ball works the same outside or in. Handweights too.
5. Take an outdoor yoga class. Tai chi too. Look for them at your community centers.
6. Try the traditional. Tennis, golf, batting cages. Surfing and kayaking. Take a lesson and enjoy the summer weather.
7. Try the untraditional. Frisbee golf? Why not? Many parks have a course incorporated now.
8. Get off the treadmill and the stationary bike. Go for a run or ride in the fresh air.
9. Mow your lawn. Really, people still do it.
10. Find a fabulous destination and walk. I love to walk to the yogurt shop near the beach. It’s a healthy mile each way with plenty of small hills. Take the walk; reward yourself; and burn it off on the way back.
