Spring Workouts That Are More Fun Than Work
By Genevieve Cunningham
Spring is a great time for making positive changes to your life. Everything is growing and changing … why not change as well? One of the best ways to make a positive change in your life is by getting more movement. And with the warm breeze and ample sunshine, spring is an excellent time to make this happen! Of course, exercise is never easy. If you’re ready to get more movement, but you don’t want to break too big of a sweat just yet, take a look at these awesome spring workouts that are more fun than work.
Explore a Neighboring Town
This is almost a lost art, but it’s actually incredibly fun! Find a neighboring town with a good downtown area. Take a day, put on your walking shoes, and explore to your heart’s content. Visit local stores, museums, parks, and join in on community gatherings. You’ll probably be surprised at just how much fun this can be. Plus, all of the walking will be an incredible workout and the fresh air will do your entire body a lot of good. Pick a new town every week or two, and you’ve got a great way to improve your fitness this spring.
Pick-Up Sports With Friends
The spring brings people outdoors, and this can mean friendly pick-up games at the local park. Grab some friends and a ball and have a blast. This will likely work almost every muscle in your body, and you’ll be out of breath by the end. But you’ll get in a great workout, and you’ll have so much fun while you’re doing it, you probably won’t even notice the sore muscles until it’s over.
The breeze is warm and inviting in the spring, so why not pick up your trusty bicycle and go for a ride? If you haven’t ridden in a while, it will be an incredible challenge. But you’ll also get that wonderful old nostalgic feeling, which will make it a ton of fun. Make it a family affair. Invite some friends. Go for a long solitary ride to clear your head. All of these are great options. And because cycling burns massive calories and gives your lower half a beast of a workout, you’ll feel quite accomplished by the end.
Spring is a great time to make changes to your routine. The weather and good atmosphere that comes with the season makes it easier than ever. Use these fun activities as ways to get fit and healthy this season. You’ll impact your health, have some fun, and make this the best time of the year.
