Now that summer is right around the corner, many people are starting to think about what they’re going to do during the hot season. If this is the case for you, now is the time to note that engaging in outdoor fitness activities is a great way to keep you fit while also enabling you to have fun in a healthy setting. Below you’ll find just five of many outside fitness activities you could try this summer:
1. Rooftop Yoga.
One great outdoor fitness activity to try this summer is rooftop yoga. As noted in Self, there’s a Whole Foods in Chicago that provides individuals with an incredible view of the city that people can enjoy while omming. Check your local listings to see what type of rooftop you could do yoga on this summer.
Cycling is a great outdoor exercise to engage in this summer. This is the case for several reasons. As noted in Better Health, cycling decreases stress levels, strengthens bones, and reduces depression and anxiety. Additionally, cycling outside brings specific benefits that cannot be attained indoors. For example, ACE Fitness notes that the wind resistance can help you burn more calories. Additionally, the constantly changing external environment puts more stress on the body such that it has to activate and use various adaptive methodologies to remain operative and effective in the outdoors.
Hiking is another wonderful outdoor fitness activity that you could engage in this summer. In addition to enabling you to get outside and enjoy natural elements like the sun and wind, hiking can lower your risk of cardiovascular disease while also increasing your energy levels. Additionally, hiking can help control and prevent diabetes while simultaneously increasing your bone density.
4. Dance Party.
Dancing is an incredibly fun physical activity to engage in, and it can burn calories too. The big benefit of dancing outside is that it brings a unique environmental change to this form of physical activity, and the experience can thus result in a wide range of wonderful cognitive and corporeal changes that keep people in a state of personal growth while having fun.
5. Play Frisbee.
One final fitness activity that you can engage in outdoors is playing frisbee. In addition to enhancing your body’s hand-eye coordination abilities, this form of physical activity can help you burn 57 calories (in just six minutes).
Five outside fitness activities that you could engage in to get healthy this summer are outlined above. Start working some or all of these exercise activities into your planner so that you can feel amazing and stay active all summer long.
