It’s spring time which means you can put away your winter clothes and get ready for the flowers to bloom. One of my favorite things to do when spring comes is to go exercising outdoors. Now I know how great the fitness centers are in Camden but every now and again it is great to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. Exercising outside during the spring time is a great way to change up your normal routine and who knows maybe you will like it. I am going to give you a list of great exercise ideas that you can do outside in the spring time and still get that same great workout you would get indoors!
The first exercise outside I would suggest is the one thing everyone seems to forget about…..stretching! Stretching before and after you exercise is so important, this helps prevent any injuries from occurring.
When it comes to exercising outdoors I like to think outside the box. The first exercise I would suggest is Hiking. Find some hiking trails near you, or look for some great trails in the woods. On average you can burn around 400 calories an hour by hiking!
The next outdoors exercise I would suggest is Biking. Enjoy some beautiful scenery while peddling off the pounds! On an average you can burn around 450 calories an hour, wow talk about tightening and toning your legs while taking a little bike ride.
Swimming! Swimming is a great way to exercise outside and burn the calories all while working out every part of your body. Just take a few laps in your pool at Camden and enjoy getting a tan at the same time.
Finally my last suggestion for exercising outside is Tennis. Tennis is a great way to work out your arms, shoulders, back muscles and of course cardio. On an average you can burn around 500 calories an hour.
I hope these exercise ideas for outdoors help you enjoy a little more nature and a little less gym….although Camden does have some pretty awesome racquetball courts in the fitness centers that you can get a great workout in!
