The time to make New Year’s fitness resolutions will be here (again) before we know it, but that’s no reason to slack off until January rolls around. In fact, fall just might be the ideal time to take up a new fitness routine. It’s a time of transition with school starting, temperatures moderating, and turning back our clocks, and starting an exercise regimen now may help you stave off holiday weight gain. Take a look at these fun and creative ways to embrace a new fitness routine this fall:
Get hooked on TV. Now that’s not a fitness tip you hear every day – but if you catch up on your favorite series while on the treadmill or elliptical, you can binge watch guilt free!
Use your dead time wisely. Spending too many hours of your week killing time during soccer practice or other kids’ activities? Instead of zoning out on your phone or gabbing with other parents on the sidelines, walk laps around the field and squeeze in a bit of exercise for yourself – bonus points if you can talk other parents into joining you.
Enjoy the fall foliage. Those colorful leaves are gorgeous – so take full advantage of this brief window with a walk around your neighborhood or on a nearby hiking trail. You’ll enjoy the awe-inspiring majesty of nature, and burn a few calories in the process.
Learn like the kids. The kids have gone back to school – isn’t it about time you learned something new? Whether you’ve always wanted to tap dance like Ginger Rogers, learn to in-line skate with grace, or even become a jump rope whiz, now’s the time to explore new territory.
Whatever you do to stay active this fall, make sure you get out there, get moving, and enjoy the crisp temperatures. Want more fall fitness inspiration? Check out these articles:
