Which Summer Workout Suits Your Fitness Personality?

Which Summer Workout Style Suits Your Fitness Personality?

I recently met with my new trainer at Crunch Fitness, and he shared his training philosophy: spend the minimum amount of time in the gym — enough to enjoy our favorite healthy activities far away from any treadmill.

His proactive lifestyle approach got me thinking about warm-weather fitness. Summer is prime time to get out of the gym whenever possible, but it doesn't just have to mean lacing up your running shoes and hitting the park. There's lots of outdoor options either during the week or on the weekend, depending on how you like to stay fit. Need a regimented workout? Sign up for an outdoor boot camp. Love to socialize? Join a sports team, and use practice and games as your workouts. Or, if you go where your whims take you, you may find yourself on a hike one day and challenging a friend to a tennis match the next.

How do you take advantage of warm weather in your fitness routine?

I love hiking and rock climbing.As soon as it's warm enough I'm scrambling around the mountains every spare minute.

I prefer to gym it year-round. That way the weather doesn't have any effect on whether or not I work out.

I run, ride my bike and swim all year long. But in the summer I get to play tennis with my friend on the free courts in the neighborhood park, so much fun!
