Okay, I think Spring is here to stay. We hit 80F twice this week, which means we’ve been training outdoors almost everyday. That’s a good feeling (minus the allergies).
Don’t be jealous, come June it will be 100F in Texas and I’ll be cursing the humidity and hibernating indoors after 10am. Ha ha. The poor kiwi has to train all day in it, so I guess I can’t complain.
But let’s stay positive here and talk about fitness, outdoor fitness, FRESH AIR fitness. You see, I teach two strength classes a week. My Friday class is now predominately outdoors. We use minimal equipment and focus on body strength exercises. These workouts are my favorite. It goes by fast and there’s always a change in scenery.

Any body can do these workouts, gym or no gym! All you need is place to run and a curb. Make sure the curb is on a street or parking lot with little to know traffic. Bonus if you can bring weights and set them up at a park. But that’s optional. Don’t have weights? Carry two water bottles with you.
Okay, you ready? Try this out one or two times through!
NOTE: For those who want to use weights, add a press to your jump jacks, like I did below.
See, fun in the sun! Okay fun once it’s complete.
If you’re looking for an online boot camp, I’d check out my friend Paige’s 8 week online bootcamp. Paige is a high end personal trainer who always creates fun and functional workouts! I’ll be joining in on some of these workouts myself!
What workout will you take outdoors this weekend?
