There are endless possibilities to stay active and experience the outdoors. Take advantage of the sunny weather and stay moving this summer by engaging in activities that get you moving outside of the gym. These fun activities are perfect for this upcoming summer!
Go For A Swim
Whether it is in the ocean with your family or at your Y’s pool, swimming has incredible physical and mental health benefits. Through its low-impact nature, swimming can have positive impacts on your endurance, muscle building, and cardiovascular health. Not only is it a great workout, but also fun!
Stand-Up Paddle Boarding
While on the ocean, also consider taking up stand-up paddle boarding. Whether it is a group lesson or on your own, SUP will allow you to improve your balance, reduce your stress levels, and provide you with a whole body workout. Grab the whole family! Stand-up paddle boarding is a great activity for all ages.
Go For a Hike
From mountain hikes to a stroll along the beach, hiking is a great way to get your steps in. No matter your age or skill level, there are great hiking opportunities all around. Hiking also has valuable health benefits such as lowering blood pressure, improving heart and lung health, contributing to weight control, and is great for your mental health.
Play Beach Volleyball
Beach volleyball is not just for volleyball players! It is a great way to get your friends and family together while also improving hand-eye coordination, endurance, and improving other workouts and sports. Just grab a ball and head down to the courts!
Go for a Bike Ride
See your neighborhood in a whole new way! Whether you prefer mountain biking or a scenic bike ride, biking is not only a great mode of transportation, but also gets you active and outdoors. Biking for a hour can burn as just as many calories as running and is fun too!
