It is the best time of year to get outdoors here in Florida! Spring is here and things are starting to get warmer as we move into Summer. This phrase does not always bring to mind the thought of exercise but that’s because you might be looking at it the wrong way. Depending on what you like, exercise outdoors can be truly rewarding. It can help decrease stress and increase motivation. Just pick something you really like to do so you can look forward to doing it. Here are some possible suggestions:
Walk – call a friend in your neighborhood to go for a walk. Catch up on the local news and share a laugh as you spend some time outdoors enjoying the wonderful weather we have here in Florida this time of year.
Bike – Dust off those pedals of your bicycle sitting in the garage and go find an adventure. Bike to a lake or park and see what others are up to. You might get more ideas on your travels. Stationary bikes are great too if you join a class indoors where you can get motivated.
Play a Friendly Game- There’s lot of things to do right where you live! There’s basketball courts and tennis courts right here for you, this is the best time to get outdoors and enjoy the awesome Florida weather we brag about.
Swim- Looking for something low-impact and easy on the joints? Go for a swim or take your workout to the pool with Aqua Fitness.
Yoga – if you want to work out with a little more control, perhaps a yoga session in your community will give you the relaxation and enjoyment you are looking for. It’s always more fun if you ask someone you know to join you! METFitness has Yoga every Thursday evening at 6pm at B Resort and Spa in Orlando.

Whatever you decide to do, put the idea of fun at the front of your plan, and do something that you will look forward to doing. Remember the child in you and get out of your house and have fun!
