On Earth Day everyone wants to get outside and be active! Here are some of our top outdoor exercise activities that you can do to celebrate Earth Day.
Yoga and other stretching exercises are best done outdoors. Yoga is most effective when you are doing the exercises under the warm rays of the sun while breathing fresh air.
Swimming is a great exercise you can do outdoors and one of the easiest on your body. Swimming works many aspects of your body: your lungs, legs, and arm muscles, not to mention it greatly strengthens the most important body part, your heart.
Hiking or Running is another great exercise you can do outdoors. There are many benefits of hiking – not just helping you control your body weight – but also improving your mental health as well. Running is a great cardio exercise and there is nothing better than breathing fresh air while checking out the sites of your local area.
Rock Climbing is another way to get out there with nature and increase your upper body strength. Rock climbing works mostly your arms and legs, but it also helps your lungs learn how to breathe better.
Taking a bike ride is a great outdoor activity and means of transportation to celebrate Earth Day! You can ride your bike to work or the grocery store enjoying the scenery along the way.
