If You Love Trails More than Treadmills
Don’t miss out on this year’s Nature’s Gym Fun Days across the country! REI and Merrell have teamed up to celebrate getting fit in the outdoors, as opposed to a stinky gym. There are still seven events left on REI’s calendar, which you can check out here.
Events include fun things like group outdoor fitness activities, giveaways, climbing walls, and much more, depending on your location. You can also test out some Merrell shoes at participating REI stores.
If your city’s REI isn’t hosting a Nature’s Gym Fun Day, create your own! You can celebrate by going out and exploring your city’s landscapes, whether that’s by hitting a trail, swimming in a lake, or even taking an urban trek around your downtown. You can find trails near you through Trails.com, your local outdoor outfitter store, or by checking out some of the great, detailed guidebooks that Wilderness Press and Menasha Ridge Press have to offer. They will surely get you prepared to maximize your time spent exploring the outdoors!
Leave the gym behind. Take your yoga outdoors. Take your kids outdoors. Spend time in nature. Reconnect.
The most important thing to remember is, GET OUTDOORS!
