Now that spring has sprung, how about pulling out some hiking gear and hitting a trail? Hiking can help build leg strength, stability, and provide a cardio workout if you keep a stiff pace. There are several low-key places to hike that are less than an hour away from HealthSPORT’s gyms. While the national parks are stunning, nearby state parks can get you off the beaten path and into a habitat where you can find your hiking groove.
Get outdoors for your next workout to celebrate the summer season before chillier days come your way. Here’s a 20-minute Last Blast Interval Workout that will challenge your heart and muscles. You’ll spend 3 minutes on a cardio drill, followed by a minute of bodyweight strength work. The no nonsense- basic, but not bland- movements can be done on grass or pavement wherever you want, whenever you want. You’ll be walking, running and skipping. No equipment needed other than a stopwatch and an attitude that’s as brilliant as the shining summer sun!
