Get Fit On Weekends

If the gym is not your vibe, or running sounds like torture then read on.

Exercise comes in many forms and is certainly not confined to a gym or running track. Make the most of the warmer weather and head outdoors this weekend and take your workout 'al fresco" with our top suggestions. 

Swim at the beach:

You may find that the water is warmer in winter than the temperatures outside, so hop into your bathers and take a dip. If the waves are too rough try an ocean pool instead.

Walk the dog: 

This simple yet often arduous task ticks a lot of fitness boxes. Take a different route or take a longer walk to get the blood pumping. Even if you don't have a dog - a daily 30 minute walk is a great way to stay fit.

Go mountain biking:

This is awesome fun and great for fitness. Even your push bike that has been buried among the clutter in the garage can be put to use here, if your bike doesn’t have gears, pick a flat pathway and go for a nice long ride in the sun. Wear a helmet and involve friends or family.

Bush walking:

Always wear a hat, sunscreen and pack plenty of water. Plan your walk and let someone else know where you are ventured off too. Get lost in the wilderness of a local national park, but make sure you know your way back!

Set up an outdoor yoga space:

Throw down some mats or a few beach towels and get into some of your favourite poses, or use the space for a good cool down stretch after a busy day.

Fun run:

No matter what your level of fitness, a fun run or 5 km park run is achievable and you can walk with a friend or jog. These fun events are often on weekends. Make a day out of it and get all your family and friends involved and encouraging you.
