Here are 4 surprisingly fun exercises that can keep you active and in shape!

1. Mountain Biking

Cycling is a great way to exercise and if you want to enjoy the beauty of nature at the same time, then you’ll enjoy mountain biking. Surrounded by trees, mountain biking is more secluded than road biking, and you don’t have to worry about drivers on the road. 

2. Rock Climbing

Whether it’s climbing on an indoor rock wall or an actual cliff, rock climbing is a fun and exhilarating way to exercise. It’s fairly easy to learn the basic techniques, and you are sure to find a gym that offers rock climbing near you!

3. Swimming

For an excellent, low-impact cardio workout, swimming is the way to go. There are various strokes that you can swim that can significantly change the level of your workout. For a slow, continuous workout, try the breaststroke. For an intense burst of heart-pumping short distance, try the butterfly stroke. Finally, for something that falls in the middle that can be fast-paced or slow and easy, try the crawl stroke.                                                                                                            

4. Kayaking

Kayaking is a wonderful way to get out on the water without getting in the water. While you may want to purchase your own kayak eventually, you can start enjoying this type of exercise by first renting one at certain lakes.
