A Gorgeous Day to Workout Outdoors!

StairsSeattle has been blessed (or cursed) with hot summer weather this year.  Even though everyone’s grass is dead, it’s still so great to be able to get outside for our workouts!  I LOVE IT!

Here’s a doable outdoor workout that will build your endurance, strength, and flexibility.

An Outdoor WorkoutSide Angle PoseOutdoor Workout Notes:  If you aren’t a jogger, just walk at two different speeds.  Push ups can be done from a bench or wall to make easier. You pick the location for how many stairs you want to do, my set above has 14 (Heritage Park in Kirkland).  You can check out details on the pilates exercises here and yoga here.  For your meditation, find a nice quiet spot to focus on your breath and either a positive affirmation (such as: today is a great day) or your favorite bible verse (one of my favorites: Psalm 96:11 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it; 12 let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy.)

Remember to consult your physician before starting this or new fitness routine.
