4 outdoor exercises youll love-biking

4 outdoor exercises you'll love

Enjoy these outdoor activities as the days get longer and warmer.

Have the dark, dreary days of winter made you slack off on your commitment to exercise? Does the thought of another day at the gym or on the treadmilll make you want to stay glued to your couch?

If so, it's time to dust off your excuses! Thanks to the arrival of daylight savings time, you now have an extra hour of daylight to enjoy some physical activity outside. 

Here are 4 ways to get moving while enjoying some fresh air:

  1. Enjoy the playground. Feel like a kid again as you go up and down the slide, traverse the monkey bars or pump your legs while on a swing.
  2. Have a ball. Enjoy a casual catch with your kids or try to perfect your lay-up on the basketball court.
  3. Get on your bike. There's nothing like the wind rushing through your hair at the end of a long day. Biking is a low-impact exercise that gets your heart pumping.
  4. Dust off a racquet. Grab a friend and head to an outdoor court for a game of tennis or pickleball.

Don't miss out on these benefits associated with exercising outdoors:
