When it comes to sports, there are not many that I would say I am necessarily really good at. Skiing? That’s my jam. Back in the day, when I was just a young & delicate flower, I was faced with one of life’s many difficult decisions (first world problems.) Should I focus all my efforts on ski racing? Or, diversify my athletic portfolio and learn to do some other things. Naturally, I chose to focus all my attention on skiing. Because how could I not… it’s so awesome! Just to START bragging about how awesome this sport is… think about the travelling, dangerous high speeds, thrill of the competition, and the views. Ohhhh those gorg mountain views. Skiing is something you can do for your entire life, and it is such a great way to stay fit.
Anyways, the point of this post is to talk about maintaining your fitness by doing the things that you love. The gym is great for staying fit year round, but sometimes it can be nice to skip the gym and get yourself outside to do something that you love!
This can literally be anything. Do you like walking? Get outside and walk! Do you like bike riding? Brush the dust off your bike and take it for a spin! It makes exercise so much more fun if you are just doing something you love. For me that is skiing, and oh sweet baby jesus do I love it. The best part? I am getting in a killer workout and not even thinking about it!
So… tell me! What are your favourite ways to get active outside the gym?!
