Take a Hike: Weekend Workout, No Gym Required

Take a Hike | No Gym Required

I don’t know about you, but going to the gym on the weekend doesn’t sound that fun to me. That being said, for most of us getting in enough physical activity during the week can be a bit challenging. We all seem to have good “workout” intentions on Monday but by Friday many of us haven’t fully filled our workout goals. That leaves our weekends; and like I’ve already said going to the gym on the weekend, not fun.

I’m not a personal trainer and would never claim to be, but I have spent my life as an active athletic person that fully understands both real life scheduling and the need to be healthy-body, mind, and soul. I’ve personally found that getting outside for a little physical activity is good for all these things. So this weekend skip the gym, get outside, get sweaty and enjoy the weekend with a workout that doesn’t feel like a workout.



Orange County and the rest of Southern California is one of the most beautiful places in the world and we’re all lucky enough to live here. Hiking is a great way to see the OC, LA and San Diego in a new way. The cool thing about a hike is it’s really just walking. You can grab friends and literally talk and walk. Whether you make a day out if and travel to LA or San Diego or drive just a few minutes to the all the great trails the OC has to offer, it’s a great way to spend time visiting and enjoying the outdoors.
