Longer days and warmer weather gives us more opportunities to get active. Here are 4 great ways to get your sweat on this spring.
1. Spring Sports
Join a pick up league for a sport that you’re interested in. There are multiple websites that organize spring sports for all ages and fitness levels. Try Boston Ski & Sports Club or Social Boston Sports to find an activity that you’re interested in. Both of these websites have a wide variety of sports like dodge ball, softball, kickball and soccer to name a few.
2. Outdoor Fitness
Take advantage of the spring weather and get moving outdoors. Leaving the gym and coming into the fresh air is a great way to get motivated again, after a long winter of indoor work-outs. Research outdoor fitness classes in your area. If there are no local classes that fit into your schedule, try starting a group fitness class near you.
3. Change Your Commute
Run, walk or bike to work. Depending on how far your commute is this may be a great way for you to get fit this spring. With gas prices on the rise, this is also a great way to save money and help the environment. You could always run or walk to work and carpool home with someone if the distance seems too far.
4. Friendly Competition
Start training for a spring or summer competition. There are multiple choices out there from your typical 5K to relay races, duathlons, trail runs, and sprint triathlons. Another competition that has become very popular is racing with obstacles like The Tough Mudder or Warrior Dash. Do some research and find a competition that you can see yourself doing.
Find something that inspires you to get moving this spring!
