Seven fun and innovative ways to stay active this fall for you and your family!

Take a Hike 

Take an afternoon off and hike your favorite trail – or make your own! Hike up the side of a mountain to get some fresh air and enjoy the fall foliage. Bring a pair of binoculars along and watch the wildlife.

Go Camping

Head to a local camping ground and pitch a tent for a night. Enjoy the fall weather and get some fresh air! Pack up the family and make a weekend out of it.

Ride a Bike

Biking is a great way to get active in the fall! Head to a local park or trail and enjoy the weather. Ride with a friend and pack a healthy snack for when you reach the top!

Pick Your Own Fruit

Many fruits and veggies are in harvest during the fall season. Check out your local farmer’s market or head to the orchard to pick your own apples, pumpkins, and other seasonal edibles.

Attend a Fall Festival

Festivals are a great way to get the whole family active and outdoors. Meet up with a friend and engage in fun activities that celebrate fall, like corn mazes and hay rides.

Work in the Yard

With the leaves falling off the trees, you have plenty of work ahead of you! Raking can be a great upper body workout to keep you toned during the fall season. Rake leaves into one large pile – and let the kids jump in it! Remember to warm up with a few stretches before you begin working. Your muscles will thank you for it.

Fall Football

You don’t have to spend the season watching football on the couch – head outside with the family to toss a ball around after dinner! See who can make the most touchdowns and get in a fun workout at the same time!

Don’t let the cooler weather keep you inside! Grab a jacket and head outside and stay active this fall.
