In the middle of planning one of the most important days of your life, exercising is probably one of the last things you want to do (probably..!). But if hitting the gym every day before work isn’t your thing, try some of these creative ideas to get in shape.
Reach new heights (like, literal ones) with rock climbing. Visit your local gym like Vertex in Santa Rosa and sign up for a membership. This will encourage you to go on a regular basis. Rock climbing builds muscle and endurance, it also requires a lot more upper body strength. Although it doesn’t seem too exerting, one hour of rock climbing could burn up to 600 calories! Your heart will sure to be pumping after a good session.
Sonoma County has a beautiful array of hiking spots, especially for beginners! Many spots are accessible by car with a trail for you to follow. Some of our favorites are Foothill Regional Park, Taylor Mountain, and Hood Mountain. Take a breath of fresh air, grab your bff, fiance, or go solo and spend some quality time exploring these stunning trails. If you’re a runner, try trail running on these beauties too.
If you’re looking for a more high intensity workout, look for a local spin class. Spin classes are the new “it” exercise and is set up as a group workout on stationary bikes. Many gyms and fitness centers off them, or you can find a boutique facility that specializes in them. Spin classes will seriously work out your lower body and get your heart pumpin’ What’s nice about spin classes is that it’s a low impact activity, in that it doesn’t put a lot of physical impact on joints like running.
