Fitness Trends: Drinking While Working Out

Fitness Trends: Drinking While Working Out

We’re probably all in need of a cold beer or cocktail after a long week! Since it’s the weekend, let’s dive into fun exercise trends that involve drinking.

Are you a wino? Taking a socially distanced trip to Oregon’s Willamette Valley may be right up your alley. Let us introduce you to your new favorite workout idea: WIKING. You maybe asking yourself, “what exactly is wiking?” Wiking is wine hiking in which you do a little hiking from vineyard to vineyard stopping for wine tastes along the way. Wiking was made popular in Oregon’s wine country in the Willamette Valley. As you may know Oregon is well known for it’s outdoor sports and activities, so it comes as no surprised they would come up with the brilliant idea of hiking while drinking wine.  A wiking trail is now open and several vineyards participate, such as Eola Hills Wine Cellars. However, it’s important to note that a reservation is required to hike as well as purchasing 3 bottles of wine, ranging from $20-105 per bottle. Be sure to check out their website for all of their COVID-19 procedures and restrictions.

Not a wino but love beer? The newest fitness fad is BierYoga, also known as beer yoga! Drinking a beer while doing yoga creates an energizing experience! While beer is known for it’s number of calories, it also has a lot of healthy benefits such as reducing the risk of breast cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. It’s also been said to boost immunity, strength bones, and protect against Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s (for details on health benefits click here). Until recently this class was only available in Berlin, but has made it’s way to Australia. I’m sure it will make it’s way to the US soon. However in the meantime, you could always check out Youtube or create your own beer yoga workout.

Another beer workout is called Cycle Pub, located in Bend, Oregon. We’re noticing a trend here with fun alcohol workouts— time to book a socially distanced trip to Oregon 😉  Cycle Pub actually has a liquor license that covers its multi-person bike pubs. This means you can bring along a bottle of wine and a growler of beer to drink with you on the go (sharing with your cycle-mates, of course), refilling it as needed at the breweries you stop at along the way. These guided tours last about 2 hours and cover roughly 2 miles of sometimes hilly terrain, firing up your quads for short periods of effort. We’re not sure if they are open or if they have COVID-19 operating restrictions, so we highly recommend checking out their website here. Other similar companies exist in other cities throughout the US such as Pub Crawler in Austin and Social Cycle in California.
