With the crisp cool morning air, crunchy leaves, beautiful warm-colored landscapes, the fall season is upon us. Fall brings many fun outside activities without the heat and humidity that the summer months can bring. Take advantage of this gorgeous season and work toward your fitness goals!
Hiking is an incredible way to exercise. You get to be outside, see beautiful scenery, and breathe the fresh air. Hiking lifts your spirits mentally and emotionally by releasing healthy endorphins and moving oxygen through your body. It’s a great way to work the lower part of your body. Your legs, glutes, calves, and thighs will be activated during a good hike.
If you can find hilly terrain to hike on, you will have even better results. The intervals of hilly terrain keep your body from adjusting and getting comfortable so you will constantly be working your muscles and getting in healthy aerobic exercise.
The trouble with biking in the summer can be the intense humidity. It is hard to enjoy a leisure bike ride when the air is so moist. The heat can also put a damper on a nice bike ride as you probably do not want to be super sweaty when you read you biking destination. Fall is the best time for biking! The air is crisp and cool. Trying going in the early morning when there are fewer cars around and see the sunrise. That will be sure to start your day off right.
