Fall Fun & Fit

Football, Harvest Festivals, and Pumpkins are everywhere these days. Fall is here!  That does not mean for me that my fitness routine decreases and neither should yours.  In fact, the best way to enjoy the fall months is to get outside and keep moving.  It is the perfect time to start a new fitness routine which you did not get a chance to this summer.
Why not start biking?  Remember the days in elementary school when you never got off the bike? Embrace your childhood and get back on those two wheels.  There is no better way to enjoy the changing leaves and the crisp air when peddling on a local trail.  Has your bike been sitting in the garage?  Make sure you air up tires prior to leaving and always wear a helmet when biking.  Find some great biking wear at Junonia.

Why not start yoga? No matter what athletic adventure you are on, stretching is a must for success in your training.  There is no better way to get a workout when stretching those tired muscles.  Want more of a challenge?  Consider hot yoga.  It is a great way to warm up on a cool fall day, and the heat is a great way to relax those muscles.  Shop great yoga wear at Junonia.

If these activities are not exciting for you, just get out and enjoy the weather.  Either a walk with your family or visiting a corn maze, keep yourself moving.  Keep embracing your active self and active life.
