Keep Calm And Exercise: The Fun And Exciting Ways To Become More Active On A Weekend
During the week we seem to be much more focused. This may have something to do with being in a routine of getting up early and heading out to a job or working. We have certain things that we need to fit into our days, and we make sure exercise is a part of it. However, on a weekend we can become a little lazy about things. We are less likely to keep being active and see them as rest days. While rest days are good for you. I thought it would be a great opportunity to share with you some fun and exciting ways you can become more active on the weekend.
Gym classes may seem like a normal thing to do during the week so why not try one on a weekend? You could do a late morning class or an evening keeping your weekend time free for other things. Gym classes are a great way to socialise with friends as well. You might find that you end up becoming friends with someone who equally does those classes on a weekend, making them much more enjoyable. Some gyms offer varied classes that you may not be able to attend during the week, so take advantage of your weekend time and join in.
Bike rides are an excellent way of taking exercise while enjoying the scenery. If you can, meet up with friends and family and make a fun activity out of it. Biking can be fun, and you don’t need to stick to your local surroundings either. You can get some great bike racks for cars meaning that you can go anywhere and experience some new places. Biking is a fun activity for anyone involved; even the whole family can join in and keep you all fit.
Hiking isn’t for the faint-hearted, but if you have a whole day to work on it then why not give it a go. It’s again a great opportunity to witness new and exciting scenery. You can get your dog involved if you have one and any friends who want to give it a go. You don’t have to hike anywhere to strenuous, but making sure you are working those muscles and keeping a good pace is great advice.
Walking the dog
On a weekend we can be tempted to laze about and not exercise. But, if you have a pet dog then you have a great excuse to be more active without it causing you too much stress. Walking the dog each morning get’s you out and walking. Walking is a great fitness builder. You could even start to keep tracks of the steps you take by investing in a wristwatch that tracks your activity. Walking the dog just got a lot more exciting.
Finally, exercising doesn’t have to be anything too strenuous. Yoga is a great active activity to participate in that encourages some form of relaxation. Giving you the best of both worlds when it comes to your weekend exercise choice.
