Who needs a gym?

There are plenty of ways to improve your health without having to purchase a gym membership. Staying active is a great way to improve cardiovascular endurance, reduce stress, and lower blood pressure. The benefits are endless. A few great ways to stay active are:

  1. Biking by the beach: A great low-impact activity that can help with cardiovascular endurance and get some much needed vitamin D.

  2. Hiking: For the more adventurous, outdoorsy individuals who like to challenge their bodies.

  3. Mall walking: For those who aren't as adventurous and prefer a more easygoing activity, as well as getting some retail therapy.

  4. Take a dance class: Pick a particular dance style that suits your personality, and even if you are not the best dancer, you'll burn plenty of calories laughing at yourself.

Most importantly…do something that you enjoy and have fun with it!
