5 fun outdoor workouts

1- Outdoor cardio routine

Try this outdoor cardio routine at the park. Do each exercise continuously as a circuit, and then repeat at least four times.


10 push ups

You can do these kneeling or full whichever you are more comfortable with.

20 crunches

30 second plank

10 squats

When squatting make sure you bend your knees at a full 90 degree angle. This will access the correct muscles and prevent any injuries.

15 Burpees

Start with a jump, and then squat down, place your hands on your mat, and jump out into a plank position. Jump feet back towards your hands, pop up into standing position, and finish with a clap at the top.

10 minute jog

2-Stand-Up Paddleboard

Get some exercise on vacation. Although paddleboarding definitely looks fun and easy, don’t be fooled! Standing on a board while taking a trip out on the water will test your balance and endurance, but it is a great way to get a full body workout. You will use almost every muscle in your body without even realizing it!


Hiking is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and stay in shape. On average hiking burns 250 calories per hour! Walking on uneven terrains requires more body control and stability which can lead to getting a great workout.

4-Play Sports

You’d be surprised how many calories you will burn while playing an outdoor sport. Paddleboarding, tennis, beach volleyball, basketball, swimming, rock climbing, hiking, recreational football, kayaking, and soccer can burn hundreds of calories per hour. Find something that you enjoy, and get active!

5-Participate in a fun run

Every month there are a plethora of local races that anyone can participate in. Get a group of friends or family together for a fun way to get a great workout! You can train together beforehand for a fun competitive edge, or simple walk together the day of. Either way, your body will enjoy the exercise.
