Working out outside during the fall is about more than just staying in shape. Allow both your mind and body to smoothly transition into a new season, one workout at a time. Not sure how to get started? Today’s post from the Williams and McDaniel blog team includes four effective outdoor workouts for fall, perfect for residents at Fergus apartments.
1. Incorporate mindful yoga
If your brain is having a hard time believing that summer is coming to an end already, reconnect mind and body by adding a reflective yoga practice to your outdoor workout. Incorporate poses that specifically focus on the lungs and large intestines, areas of the body that many yoga practitioners associate with transition and change.
2. Take advantage of your local park
Many of Fergus’ most scenic parks and conservation areas are only open to the public until mid-October. Experience the beauty of the fall season by taking advantage of these inexpensive workout destinations while you can. At local spots such as Belwood Lake Conservation Area (8282 Wellington 18), you can kayak, canoe, mountain bike or hike. This 12-kilometre reservoir is only a five-minute drive from Aberdeen Place Apartments (91 Westminster Crescent).
3. Turn fall festivities into workouts
Many fall activities naturally include physical movement. Whether you are raking leaves, selecting the perfect pumpkin or picking apples, there are plenty of workouts reserved solely for the fall and great for getting the entire family involved. Get started with a family trip to Martin’s Family Fruit Farm (1420 Lobsinger Line), a manageable 30-minute drive from Belsyde View Apartments (175 Belsyde Avenue East).
4. Go for a run
Before cold weather keeps you indoors, get your legs moving and your heart pumping with an outdoor run. You may find that without the summer heat to hold you back you can run further and faster than you could just a few weeks ago. Try a new trail in Fergus to mix up your routine.
Get ready to get moving, using today’s post from Williams and McDaniel to plan an effective and fun-filled workout that will help your mind and body transition into a new season. For more information about Fergus apartments, visit our website today.
