First off, because we continue to get questions, I wanna say that you do NOT have to link up every week nor follow the theme. We announce on Twitter, Facebook or one of our blogs IF there is one and they are always optional, so make sure you’re following one of us to find out. Ok, now back to regularly scheduled programming.
1. Running. Duuuuuh.
2. BodyPump. I enjoy strength training in general but this particular class I just love. I usually take it 2 times a week at my local Gold’s Gym but it was developed by Les Mills so you can find it at other fitness facilities it’s distributed to. I could clean and press all day long!
3. Yoga. More specifically, I have become a huuuuge fan of hot yoga. Core Power Yoga recently opened in the DC area and I’ve taken to many of their classes, all of which are heated. There are also a few variations, including sculpt which is hot yoga with weights (yes, please). This week alone I’ve been there twice with plans to go a couple more times this weekend.
I have tried to enjoy yoga before but find the stillness of a regular class counterproductive to its purpose for me (because I can’t be still). But the effects of Yoga for runners is incredible so I’m glad I’ve found something that works (and can’t wait for Yoga hikes to start again!!)
4. Walking. Running is my “thing” but I can never pass up a good walk. I’m fortunate to live in a very walkable city like DC. I’m within walking distance to Rock Creek Park and many shops and grocery stores, and with a bevy of monuments and historical buildings there is always a tour to be had. I have also been known to hop on over to the White House on my lunch break. So when the weather gets nicer and, a walking I will go!
5. Hiking. I love me a good mountain 🙂 But seriously… I enjoy the outdoors and exploring different trails and terrain. On my list for sure locally is getting to Great Falls for a scenic hike!
What are some of your favorite fitness activities? Do you prefer being inside or outdoors? #TGIF!!
