If you want to boost your level of fitness or if you know that you need to try and shed a few pounds then getting outdoors is a great way for you to do this. After all, when you are able to get outside, you give your body some much needed Vitamin D and you can also boost your endorphin levels as well. If you want to get outside but you are not quite sure how to go about doing this then here are some top tips that will get you started.

Try your Hand at Hiking

Hiking can be a fantastic way for you to boost your health and fitness level. The best thing about hiking is that it is best done with friends and other people. They can help to keep you safe when you are out on the trail and they can also keep you company as well. You can even plan out the route that you are going to take together as well and this can provide you with a brilliant bonding experience. Of course, if you know that you are new to hiking then it is a good idea for you to familiarize yourself with the trails in your local area and it also helps to have the number for an
airevac company because if you run into any trouble at least you know you’re covered.

Immerse yourself in Rock Climbing

Believe it or not, rock climbing is great if you want to boost your stamina. You will have to engage certain muscle groups for long periods of time and this can make all the difference to your level of fitness. A lot of people think that hiking and rock climbing are similar but in reality they could not be any more different. The main thing that you have to remember when you do go rock climbing is that you need to invest in a good level of equipment. You need something to try and keep you safe if you fall and you also need to make sure that you have a good level of grip on your shoes as well. Chalk is another piece of gear you may want to invest in as well, as
this can really make all the difference to how enjoyable your experience can be.


Venture out Cycling

Cycling is another way for you to workout and the best thing about this is that it gives you chance to see some of the many sights in your local area. You can venture to places that you have never been to before and this can really help you to broaden your local knowledge. When you do go out cycling, you will also find that you can work on your speed, your stamina and your strength levels. There are so many routes for you to take and you can even customize them to meet your needs by adjusting your route around hills, roads and grassland. Every experience is different and this is ideal if you bore easily.

  1. Little Talbot Island State Park has a great kids trail called the “Campground Nature Loop”. It is less than a mile long. If you check in at the ranger station, they give you a map with special instructions and an access code for the campground area (across the street)- this is where the trail is. There are informational stops along the way and the map tells you that at some of the stops there are plastic bins “hidden”, and they are filled with goodies for the kids. My boys got a small notepad and pencil, a compass, a magnifying glass, and a little toy frog. It was a blast! It goes along a marsh so was very wet when we went with recent rain and the mosquitoes were crazy (again, lots of rain recently), but it would be a great spot to check out in cooler, dry months!
