Well, the time is upon us again. The long, hot days and warm nights. The days spent outside, just taking in the fresh air. While the warm weather is often welcome, it also gives us an excuse to stop exercising "because of the heat". Luckily, we don't have to stop exercising altogether, but there are many other activities that we can consider to get our daily fix of exercise. Swimming or water sports are a very refreshing way to beat the summer heat, and a great full body workout in many instances. Gardening is also a great way to keep your yard looking beautiful, eating the healthy fruits and vegetables of your labor and increasing your activity level. Take your dog for a run in the evening (when it's the most cool out) or move your yoga workout outdoors. Either way, it's a great time to get out of the gym, try something new and give your exercise routine a jolt!
