The weather is warming up, which means new ways to get that heart rate up too! With the summer months comes endless opportunities to exercise – whether you’re chilling at home or jet setting around the world, there’s always a way to fit in a workout.
Heading to the beach this summer? Try stand-up paddle boarding (it’s harder than it looks) or kayaking for a great upper body workout that helps you see the sights. Chances are, there will be a place to rent them by the hour. And don’t forget to dive in! Outdoor swimming is a great way to fit in some cardio without getting too hot. Easy on the joints, plus you can avoid all that chlorine!
For city trips, install a step tracker app on your phone, because you’re bound to rack up some serious miles. Skip the taxi or subway and choose to walk – you’ll see the city in a new way and easily fit in a workout! If you’re craving something more, a morning run is a great choice. Do a quick search for local trails and parks, and try to walk, run, or cycle on dirt or gravel paths, since asphalt and concrete tend to radiate heat and reflect the sun’s rays, making you feel hotter.
Stay fit this summer to avoid injuries, and work off those ice cream calories!23
