Reap the Benefits of Hiking This Season

We all know that regular exercise does a body good, but feeling restrained behind gym walls can leave you feeling burned out and unmotivated. To mix things up and add adventure to your workout, get outside and hike! Educate yourself on its amazing health benefits.

  • Hiking lowers blood pressure by opening arteries and taking stress off the heart.
  • Hiking reduces stress levels.
  • Hiking is a great way to let your mind go while working up a sweat, catching some rays, and taking in some fresh air.
  • An hour of hiking can burn a whopping 355 calories!
