Working Out at a Park

Get Fit For 2010: The Park Is My Gym

This week's challenge for the Get Fit For 2010 giveaway is to share a workout that you love. If exercising in a busy and stuffy gym isn't your thing, FitSugar reader caffeinecaptain agrees and has a great (much cheaper) alternative.

This is my first blog post in the Get Fit for 2010 challenge! I work out at a gym, but lately I've been getting a little bored with the elliptical and treadmill. I was thinking about the dryland training I used to participate in for ski racing, so I found a local park with a track and a small workout playground (a playground with pull up bars and such), and started looking for exercises that I could do outdoors. I downloaded some plyometric routines, and then some of the circuit routines here on FitSugar. I placed them in a binder that is weather durable and headed to the park! It's a bit of a commute, but I've been going two times a week and for a couple of hours and doing a mix of running, strength training, bounding, and yoga. I find it diverse and really peaceful because even when there are others there, it doesn't have the stuffy feeling of the gym.

It's not too late to share your workouts if you haven't done so already, so join our Get Fit For 2010 community group and write a blog post about your favorite workout. By participating, you'll not only be keeping up with your healthy lifestyle, but you'll also be entered into the drawing for our weekly giveaway of a $100 Nike gift card as well as an awesome grand prize.
