By Donna Stark
It's an exciting time right now because summer has finally arrived, but what may not be very exciting for you anymore is your daily workout. If you have been cooped up inside for too long or if your fitness routine is starting to grow mold on it due to its staleness, keep reading! Your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic have come up with five different ways to exercise that will not only get you outside to enjoy Mother Nature, but will also give your body an excellent workout! Take a look.
It's no wonder why paddleboarding is becoming more and more popular as the years pass. Paddleboarding is a relatively easy exercise that can be done in several different types of calm water. Whether you are at the beach, lake, or local creek, you can look forward to a workout that is low-impact, engages nearly every muscle in the body, and improves your overall balance and strength.
You already know that yoga can tone your body, lengthen your muscles, ease tension, improve balance, and increase flexibility, but did you know it can also reduce your stress? And if you participate in rooftop yoga, the view in front of you will help reduce it even more! Get out of the wall-to-wall mirrored classroom or your unfinished basement and find a yoga studio that offers yoga under the bright blue sky!
Do you like music and a fast-paced lifestyle? If you do, Zumba may be the perfect workout choice to make! Zumba is an exhilarating, fast-paced, dance-based exercise that will help you burn those unwanted calories and improve your cardio fitness. It's fun, it's social, and it's an excellent way to move your body!
Tennis is a great way to hang out with friends and have fun while staying physically active. It's one of those magical workouts that can improve your cardio fitness without requiring a lot of running. But don't let that fool you! Although you aren't running as much as you would in a soccer match, this type of workout will still leave you feeling completely exhausted by the time you are done!
Even though it may not seem like an exciting way to exercise, walking can be if you do it right. Whether you are exploring a neighboring town, hiking with a friend, or letting the waves tickle your toes, walking is an excellent workout. It engages all the muscles in your lower body, improves your cardiovascular health, and aids in weight loss.
An Active Summer
The most important thing you can do to stay healthy during the summer is to keep your body moving! And with the suggestions above, you shouldn't have any problem doing so. You may even get excited about your workouts once again!
