This is a great time of year to enjoy exercise outside. The sun, mild weather, and cooler evenings are perfect for a walk, run, or bike ride. Although, squeezing in a workout may become more difficult as we will start to lose sunlight and warm days.

Follow these simple steps to stay motivated:

1 – Plan Ahead

Decide on your indoor or outdoor exercise in advance. Decide which time of day is best for you and plan accordingly. If morning is when you want to exercise, for the morning have your clothes ready to go. For evening workouts, bring a change of clothes with you.

2 – Willingness to Change

Be willing to change your routine depending on the seasons. Changing your routine can help the body burn more calories and avoid boredom.

3 – Fuel Your Body

Lots of fruits, vegetables, and water will help your body stay energized longer.

You don’t have to let your fitness go through the winter. Start planning today and maintain your fit body.

4 – Plan your next big race

Fall is the perfect time to find many races and fun runs to choose from, Halloween costume runs, turkey trots, color runs from  5K’s to 10K’s.  Great fun and fitness all in one.
