This Just In

Awesome and Easy Beach Workouts

I live in Florida, about 15 minutes from the beach. We’re there just about every weekend and yes, I mostly spend my time there building sandcastles with my toddler, sitting and sipping sparkling water (someday, I will not be pregnant and will switch to mimosas or a cold beer but alas…that’s several months away) or even just dozing under an umbrella.

But the beach is also an amazing workout opportunity. Whether you just take a nice, long walk on the unstable sand or do something a little more intense, why not combine fun and fitness?

My latest article for Fix.com is now available, and remember — if you like it, you can always share it on your own platforms or even embed the graphic onto your own blog! Head here for the direct link and full explanations/descriptions of each part of the routine, and please make sure you keep a few things in mind:

  • Make sure you’re wearing weather-appropriate clothes and shoes, slather on the sunscreen, and bring your sunglasses!
  • If you’re on soft sand or in the water, you’re going to be using your muscles in new ways. Even if these are postures or moves you’ve done before, make certain that you go at a slower pace or at half-strength until you know how your body is going to react.
  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! You’re going to be in the sun and certainly will be dealing with more humidity than you normally would have in your air-conditioned gym, so be smart and safe.
  • If you’re going to be working out in or near the water, please make sure you can swim – and it’s always a good idea to take a buddy to help in case you get a cramp or need assistance.

So, what is the workout? Check it out below!
