Five Fall Fitness Tips

Fall Season Fitness | Goodwill Car Donations

5 Fall Fitness Tips: Enjoy This Beautiful Season While Getting Fit!

Across the United States, fall is such an enjoyable season as it has warm sunny days and cool evenings. What better way to maximize your enjoyment of the season than by getting in shape?

The change in the season provides us with an opportunity to rethink how we can best take care of our body. Get fit with these five fall fitness tips!

  1. Take advantage of the weather.

There is no excuse for you to not go outside and exercise. There are lots of park trails to discover! You can enjoy the scenery while walking, cycling or hiking. You can also try canoeing or kayaking if you live near a lake or beach. It’s an excellent activity for a whole-body workout.

  1. Choose a workout buddy.

Did you know that boredom is the number one killer of fitness regimens and good health as a whole? Exercising with a friend puts the fun back into your routine. Find a friend who has similar fitness level and goals with you—someone who will help you stay motivated. What’s even better is that you can use your exercise time to catch up with each other’s lives!

  1. Do cross-training.

Vary your exercise routines and intensities from time to time—from cardiovascular to strength to flexibility routines. Include treadmill exercises; try dance classes and kickboxing or take HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workouts. You can also try a new outdoor sport like biking or hiking. Whenever you begin a new activity, you may burn fewer calories at first but as you master it, you will burn more calories.

  1. Be consistent with your exercise regimens.

It is better to do a little bit of exercise often than doing a whole lot every now and then. Other than being consistent, you should also commit to getting fit! Get your body moving every day!

  1. Integrate exercise into your life.

 If you have a car, park farther away from your office or destination. During lunch break, take a walk. Instead of taking the elevator, take the stairs. You can also speed walk while doing errands. Doing house chores lets you exercise as well! Wash the dishes with your hands and not your dishwasher. Switch arms when you vacuum. Mow the lawn with a push mower instead of paying someone to do it.
