Summer has come to a close and the warm weather is fading. While you might not be able to do your favorite summer activities during fall, these tips can help you stay active during the colder season. Include the family and encourage them to stay fit this fall!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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. Start with a short walk to loosen the muscles, followed by a 5 to 10 minute stretching session. This will help prevent injury to your back, legs, arms, shoulders and neck.
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 weather keep you inside all day! Grab a jacket and head outside to stay active during the fall season.
