Work It Out Outdoors

0

With our gorgeous weather, it only makes sense to get out and enjoy the sun while you work on your body. Besides working out in a gym, there are several ways to work on your fitness in the great outdoors (Photo by Leandro Boogalu).

From Key West to Palm Beach, you can find outdoor calisthenics equipment, yoga classes, walking, biking, paddling paths and more.

Here are some options to check out!

Beach Calisthenics

There are several calisthenics parks out there– some right on your favorite beaches. You can get a free workout right on the sand. Typical equipment includes incline benches, high bars, monkey bars and rings. Also, when you are done sweating, you can cool off in the ocean. And – if you are an exhibitionist – you can enjoy the audience of beachgoers watching you stretch, climb and sweat.

These locations below have all the equipment you need for a good workout.
