The summer is a great time to start your new exercise program. The weather is beautiful, let’s go outside with DealDash!
If you live in most parts of the US then you are used to cold, windy, snowy winters. Now that it’s beginning to feel like summer it’s a great time to get in some exercise while the weather is nice. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Swimming – Most people love to swim, and it’s a very good low-impact workout. Even if you are elderly or have trouble walking most people are still able to swim, float, or do water aerobics in the water without any extra pain. If you are in good shape anyway then a nice swim can be your reward after a vigorous work out. Swimming is also a wonderful way to get your whole family involved in exercise. If you have any smaller kids that aren’t able to swim yet, then that’s a bonus for your workout, since you will have to carry, push, and pull them around the pool.
Jogging/Running – Jogging and running are excellent ways to burn calories and get toned. If you love to jog or run but have been snowed in all winter then now is the time to tie up those sneakers and get outside! Please remember, though, it’s best to run in either the early morning or evening when it’s cooler outside. Sun stroke is no joke! Be sure to drink lots of water to stay hydrated.
Walking – If you’re not up to jogging or running how about taking a nice long walk instead? Walking is awesome for your cardiovascular health, it’s low-impact, you get to take in the sights and sounds of nature, and it can be a lot of fun if you have someone to go with you. If you have a partner to walk with it makes the time go by much quicker and you will be able to walk much further than you would on your own. Alternately, if you can’t find a human walking companion, how about adopting, fostering, or borrowing a dog to walk with?
