Getting outside in the spring can pose some unpredictable challenges when rain or snow could be on the horizon at any point.
This is why it is important to enjoy the outdoors when the opportunity presents itself. Here are some great outdoor activities to get you out of the winter blues and into the spring spirit.
Running and Hiking
Slip into your favourite pair of sneakers and enjoy the beauty that Edmonton trails have to offer. Running is one of the best forms of cardio and is a perfect excuse to escape the indoors this spring. While hiking can be less strenuous than running, there are trails that are going to challenge your strength and stamina, while putting you in the middle of the Alberta wilderness. There are some incredible trails that can be found in the Edmonton area for you to discover this year.
Biking is another great way to get back in shape while enjoying the scenery in Edmonton. You can use your bike as your primary means of transportation throughout the city, or enjoy more of the trails surrounding Edmonton. You don't even need to own a bike, there are bike rental services available to help you get around the city and get out into the great outdoors.
Outdoor Circuit Training
Circuit training is one of the best full body workout routines you can do because you're working every part of your body. Circuit training is great because you don't need equipment, giving you flexibility in where you do your workout. Outdoor circuit training is a very broad term, with lots of different types of workouts so you can choose one that suits your fitness level. Pick a spot on your driveway or venture out to a park, no matter where you are you'll be able to get a great workout in.
It's time to dust off your golf clubs and hit the links at one of the 80 beautiful golf courses in the Edmonton area. Whether you're a golf pro, or just a beginner, you can enjoy the fresh air and great weather all throughout the spring and summer. Rent a golf cart or walk the fairways, either way you'll be getting a good workout and some much needed fresh air after a long winter.
