Fit for the Holidays

Fall is a great time to start a fitness program,  because you’re going to create good habits for the holiday season and winter months. There are lots of fun outdoor exercises for fall you should take advantage of while you can.

  1. Take a Hike. Hiking is one of the best outdoor exercises for fall, hands down! You get to enjoy the foliage, the clean air, and the beauty of nature as a whole. Hiking is also an excellent way to get fit while spending time with friends and loved ones.

  2. Enjoy a Long Walk. If hiking is a little too intense, then a simple walk is another fantastic outdoor exercise for fall. Just pop in your ear buds, load up your favorite playlist, and take off for a long walk as the sun starts to go down.

  3. Just Jog. Walking and hiking both protect you against the cooler temperatures, but going for a run is even better. As long as you dress appropriately, you can really get your blood flowing with a jog or a more intensive run. Try the track at the local high school or YMCA, or check out the running paths in your area. Whatever you choose, you’ll be giving your heart a fantastic workout!

  4. Hop on Your Bike. The temperatures are perfect for a ride, especially if you choose a route that intersperses straight stretches with hills. Even riding by yourself is great; you get into a meditative state that makes it easy to forget the day’s stresses.

  5. Think about Rollerblading (yes, that’s right) or ice skating when you’re looking into outdoor exercises for fall. Both provide a pretty intense workout.

There is so much to enjoy about the autumn months and just by thinking outside the box, you can come up with plenty of activities and exercise opportunities to stay in shape while getting ready for those holiday months ahead.
