How to Stay Fit in the Fall Months

Depending on where you live, the fall season will bring cooler weather. The long, hot days of summer are ending, and for many, this is a better time to get out and enjoy the great fall weather. It might also be a good time to be more active outdoors. If it was too hot for you to exercise and enjoy activities outside in the summer, the fall season may bring just what you need to get fit, active and stay healthy.

Here are some tips on how to stay fit in the fall months:

Go for walks – It sounds simple because it is. Really, just taking a nice walk in the fall weather for as long or as short as you can, based on your health and ability. You can bring a friend or the family to enjoy it with you. Simply walking every day can keep you fit.

Go to the beach – If you live close enough, consider going to the beach. Just because Labor Day is behind you doesn’t mean you can’t go play for a day. The crowds have usually all moved out by this point and you will get most of the beach to yourself.

Play a game – Do you like sports? Enjoy shooting hoops with the family, play some soccer or tossing a Frisbee? Fall can be a great time of year to play some games. Since it’s not usually as hot, but the weather is still warm enough to enjoy, get out there and get active.

Clean up the yard – Are the leaves starting to fall off the trees yet? This can be a great time to start cleaning it all up. It gives you a great workout since raking and bagging leaves can burn as much as 200 to 300 calories an hour. Get the family involved too!

    Been doing a few activities on the list. Yard work and roof work mostly for me. I do plan on hitting the gym regularly over the next few months just as I am currently.
