Let me start by debunking a common belief: you do not need a gym to get fit and stay fit. Gyms can be expensive, depending on the monthly membership fee. Even if you use your gym membership all the time, you’re still paying money each month. That’s money you’ve worked hard for. Why spend it on a membership when you can reap the gym benefits for free?
The great outdoors are, for lack of a better word, great, especially for staying in shape. All that oxygen is exactly what you need while you’re exercising. So get out there and enjoy it! There are a bunch of different exercises you can do outdoors, while breathing in all of that fresh air. It all depends on your exercise preference.
Walking and Running
One of my favorite ways to exercise is running. I love to run. It’s a great workout, and it’s simple and cheap. All you need is a good pair of running shoes and a place to run. Walking is the same, with a pair of shoes and a location. You can do both around your neighborhood, using the streets and sidewalks as your path. Or you could go to a park. Most parks have running or walking paths. You just need to get out there and push yourself. Have trouble pushing yourself? Bring a friend, and push each other!
Cycling, or biking, is another great exercise. With some exercises, you have to really work to start a slow burn. Cycling isn’t like that. Sure, the harder you cycle, the more you burn, but even an amateur cycler will burn calories with a slow pace. The one downfall to cycling is that it can cost money. If you don’t have access to a bike, you may have to spend money. However, they are an investment it’s a one-time cost, and you will have that bike for as long as you want, to use whenever you want. You can find bikes of all kinds, no matter where you live. There’s a shop nearby.
