The anti-workout: Fun outdoor weekend “workouts”

When the weather is nice, there are so many things to do outside. Sometimes its hard to get a workout in when you’d rather be visiting a park, golfing, or going to the pool. Luckily, you don’t have to feel toooo guilty about skipping your weekend workouts because there are so many summer activities that involve moving your body! The trick is to pick the activities that are more…active!

Last weekend we went to Chicago to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. Needless to say, I did not bring my workout bag with me. But we still managed to be active! After hours of walking, shopping, and sight-seeing, my sore feet were proof of this!

Here are some great warm-weather activities that will get you burning calories while having fun:

  • Frisbee Golfing (aka Golf Disc) – don’t worry, you don’t need any experience to have fun with this activity. Just pick up a Frisbee disk from your local sporting goods store (~ $10) and look up the closest Frisbee golf course online for hours of fun!

  • In the city? On vacation? Go for a long walk. People watch, sight see, and shop (carrying around those shopping bags is like adding weights to your walk!).
  • If you’re more sporty, there’s always tennis, golf, cycling, rollerblading, or hiking!

  • Rent a kayak, canoe, or paddle board. Lots of local lakes will rent these out for a day, and you don’t need to be an expert to use them!

What are your favorite weekend activities?

Have a happy healthy day!
