5 Fitness Options For the Fall

By Brandi Goodman 

You may soon start to notice the air getting colder, the sun setting sooner, and the leaves lightening from their usual shade of bright green. These are all signs that fall is soon upon us. Just because summer has come to an end doesn't mean you need to stop your fitness goals. Plenty of fitness options exist for the fall that can have you working up a sweat and feeling good.

Hiking

The summer months aren't always ideal for hiking due to the heat. The fall weather is much more suitable for the activity. You can hike some local trails and explore the beautiful world as it changes around you. Hiking is a terrific autumn activity.

Touch Football

Fall is football season. Rather than just watching the game, create a game yourself. Play touch football outdoors with friends to have some fun while getting in a good workout. You don't have to be a professional to play. Flag football is also a good option. 

Corn Mazes

Corn mazes are a popular pastime in the fall. Whether you go to a simple maze during the day or a haunted maze at night, these activities can be quite enjoyable while also offering a fitness aspect. You'll spend some time walking along the paths trying to find your way out of the maze. Go to the haunted version and you may find yourself running. You'll be burning plenty of calories in the process.

Raking and Leaf Jumping

Raking the yard may not feel very fun. It's a chore after all. But add leaf jumping at the end and you're more likely to want to get the raking done sooner and more often. Rake up the leaves throughout the autumn months and jump in the pile at the end like kids do. It will provide a full cardio workout. 

Apple Picking

Picking apples is a traditional fall activity. Don't just go one day out of the year. Make it a weekend occurrence throughout the fall so you keep your apple supply stocked and your workout routine set. Walking up and down the orchard aisles picking apples from high up on the trees will work your legs and arms especially.

Enjoy your fitness time any way you see fit. Whether you want to try out these options or do your own thing, maintaining an exercise routine throughout the colder months of the year is one way to help combat Seasonal Affective Disorder, boost your mood, and keep you in shape no matter what goodies you're eating.
