The change in seasons can re-direct our exercise routines and change our motivation levels. Get your daily activity in with these Fall Into Fitness tips!
Take a Hike
The cool autumn air makes a great environment for an outdoor trek. Hiking boosts the heart rate and uneven terrain trains stabilizing muscles.
Raking leaves or doing other tasks around the yard is a great way to get moving, and the chillier weather makes for an invigorating time to sweat, too.
Invest in some smart layers. From new running shoes to a packable puffer, cold-weather gear can help provide the motivation to get out there.
Get Your Steps In
Apple picking, ghost tours, a walk through the woods to see the fall colours, or a trip to the pumpkin patch are fun ways for the whole family to get their steps in.
Audiobooks and podcasts are proven to be a great way to help you stick with your exercise routine. Get lost in a great story as you get moving.
Adjust your summer training by incorporating more resistance training into your program week by week. Take your dumbbells outside on sunny fall days and move indoors as the weather gets colder.
