Staying Active In The Fall

by Valerie Morrison November 08, 2021

Staying Active In The Fall

Fall has arrived - which means pumpkin spice lattes, cozy sweaters, changing leaves and much cooler weather.

It’s the time when some of us go into a hibernation state before gearing back up for summer again once the holidays are over. During the colder seasons people tend to stay inside more, while exercising less.

Here are seven ways to combat the cold weather lull, all while enjoying the beautiful fall and winter weather.

Walk/hike/Run/Bike Outside – Fall is one of those times of year where the air is crisper, and the leaves are falling for most of us. It’s the perfect time to take a jog in the trees, take advantage of your local hiking trails now that the weather is a bit cooler. A bike ride on the boardwalk or local bike path is a great workout this time of year especially when you can get several miles in.

Outdoor Axe throwing – Ok, this one is not really getting your heart rate pumping but what better way to spend a fall night then outdoor axe throwing with some of your closest buddies.  If you want an even better work out - wood splitting is both a muscle builder and a cardio work out in one.

Yoga/Palates – Most of us tend to bring our yoga mats back inside during this time of year. Instead throw an extra layer of clothes on and roll out your mat outdoors (for extra warmth put hand warmers in your pockets).

Get an outdoor game going with friends and family – frisbee golf is the perfect fall and winter sport to try. You may find that you get hooked. Avid frisbee golf players love to play in the snow for the added challenge as well as the endurance training. 

Skiing/Snowboarding or snowshoeing - If you live in an area that is fortunate enough to get snow, then snowboarding and skiing are excellent ways to get some cardio in while being outdoors. Another winter exercise that is much less common is snow shoeing. Snowshoes can be rented or purchased inexpensively and if you get snow in your area then you can put on your snowshoes and get a little cardio in even if it’s just walking around your block!

To help fuel your immune system this season start taking a multi-vitamin like Ground-Based Nutrition’s Emergency Immune Support ,which contains Vitamins C and D3 as well as echinacea.
