National Fitness Day

National Fitness Day

So many of us, myself included, work and find it very difficult to make time or find the time for fitness in our everyday lives. However, it’s so very important to our physical and mental health that we do. National Fitness Day is celebrated every year on the first Saturday in May. This year it falls on May 7.

National Fitness Day was created to encourage us to get up and get moving. Sometimes the hardest part of incorporating a fitness routine into our already busy lives is getting started. However, once you get started you realize how amazing it makes you feel. It offers so many benefits. You often feel happier, stronger, more energetic and so much more. With spring weather here, it’s a great time to get started and venture outdoors for some exercise. As I was looking for some outdoor fitness ideas, I came across many options and thought I would share some of them:

  1. Hiking
  2. Kayaking
  3. Biking
  4. Trail running
  5. Outdoor yoga
  6. Swimming
  7. Stand-up paddle boarding
  8. Obstacle courses
  9. Rollerblading
  10. Basketball
  11. Outdoor boot camp
  12. Playground interval workout
  13. Jogging or walking
  14. Tennis or pickle ball
  15. Outdoor volleyball

I know I always feel better when I make time to exercise. I’m hoping to try some of these ideas soon.

Happy National Fitness Day everyone! Wishing everyone a happy and healthy lifestyle!
