woman jogging in the forestThis time of year, gym attendance is typically at a high as folks set out to get healthier after the holiday season. Visiting a crowded gym isn’t the only option for achieving your physical health goals. Prefer the great outdoors? Here are some ideas for getting exercise outside:

  • Walking: Walking helps improve blood pressure while strengthening your legs and core, not to mention may offer beautiful stress-reducing sights.
  • Biking: Work on your heart health in the winter or summer—just make sure you’ve got the proper tires for the terrain.
  • Trail running: Strengthen your legs, hips, and improve bone density by running. Bonus—trail running may also be easier on your joints versus pavement.
  • Skiing: Both water skiing and snow skiing are excellent cardiovascular workouts that can help you drop some weight.
  • Slacklining: This full body workout is great for improving balance, posture, and core strength, and requires just two trees.
