Updated: Dec 29, 2020

Remaining healthy, and fit shouldn't feel like a chore throughout the year. With so many of us frequently getting bored within a few weeks or months of a new workout routine, finding a fun, creative alternative is key. As summer quickly approaches, discover ways that you can spend time outdoors while getting a quick workout!

Join a team. Signing up for an adult sports team can be the easiest way to get in a fun workout while enjoying the weather. It could be for a work team, or community intramural, such as kickball, softball, soccer, etc. Not only will you get to spend time with your friends and teammates, but you will enjoy yourself while burning calories!

Partake in a walking tour of your city. This is such an easy and entertaining way to stay in shape. The options are endless within your city limits. Pick new areas of your city that you would want to explore and sign up for a registered tour or make up your own with a friend. With a supportive pair of shoes, this is an exciting way to spice up your workout routine!

Rock Climbing. Are you a thrill seeker looking for an awesome strength and cardio routine? Whether you are a beginner or more experienced, rock climbing is a stimulating workout option. Look for your local opportunities with a friend and enjoy!

Group bike rides. An entertaining way to get in a good workout within the warmer months is through bike rides. Take charge and set up a weekly ride with friends, neighbors, or work colleagues and enjoy each others company, while getting fit.

Sign up for an obstacle course race. Registering for an obstacle course race such as the Warrior Dash, is a great way to incorporate fun, giving back, and fitness. Between climbing walls and crawling through mud and trenches, you will get the perfect amount of outdoors and exercise.To make it better, it’s all for a good cause!

Water activities. An amazing way to enjoy the outdoors is through taking a few hours out of your day to go to a local lake, pond, ocean, to canoe, kayak, surf, paddle board or whatever you would prefer. You will experience the scenery and weather all while fitting in your daily activity.

Go on a hike. A neat way to experience the great outdoors while getting a good cardio workout is through hiking. Whether that be within your city or traveling elsewhere, hiking offers you the benefits of being outside while getting fit.

Volunteer in your community. Giving back to your community through volunteer work is an enjoyable and a personally rewarding way to spend time outdoors. Through organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, you have the opportunity to give back to others in need within your community. In addition to lending a helping hand to a great cause, you also sneak in a workout along the way!
