Outdoor Fitness!

I’m not someone who likes to workout, but when I do, I prefer to be outdoors. One of my favorite spots to get a little exercise is at Bird Key Park and walking across the Ringling Bridge. This walk is 3.04 miles round trip and walks up and over the bridge (twice) which is 25.92 ft at its highest point and burns around 400 calories. You can also run, jog or ride a bike. There is a dog park to exercise with your pet, a playground on the other side for the kids or you can bring your paddle board or kayak! What I love most about this workout is that it doesn’t feel like exercise. The breeze feels great and the view is amazing!!! My only advice would be to go in the morning or the afternoon when it’s cooler and not go in the middle of the day when it’s hot. Bring plenty of water, have fun and get fit!
