Baby it's gold outside! And orange, yellow, and red! Get in on the fun and the beauty that is autumn by staying active and outside this fall!

It’s snugly sweater time, people! That may not excite all of you, but it should. It’s also the time when things cool off, pies come out of ovens, hot chocolate becomes in vogue, and pumpkin spice takes over the world. Some part of that must be nice for you.

Fall is also the time when we start bundling up, eating too much, and staying indoors. If you really want to have a beach ready body next summer, it starts by staying fit and active year round. Here are some ideas to keep you moving throughout this autumn season.

Hike

Fall is one of the best times to go hiking, climbing, or for a gentle stroll through the great outdoors. You miss the summer crowds while also not melting into a puddle of overheated goo in the process.

Camp

Take advantage of the cooler days to enjoy a night under the stars. Camping is great for the body and the mind. You pack up, move around a lot, and get the stress release that comes from being outside.

Corn Maze

These fun mazes start popping up when the crisp air rolls in. Race your family or friends. For extra cardio, visit one of the scarier ones late at night.

Hit the Gym

If you aren’t all about fall, now is a good time to get a gym membership and use it. Get in the habit before it gets colder, and you may stick with it through winter too.

Park

Visit your local park. Swing, run, play Frisbee, pick up pickle ball, play volleyball, or simply sit beneath an older tree to watch the leaves fall.

Bike

That cool air makes more strenuous activities bearable. Hit those trails or the pavement and let the autumn oxygen fill your lungs.

Take a Class

Many fitness classes and adult sports start in fall. Sign up already for something that speaks to you, your interests, and your fitness level.

Walk

You know that street in your town that you just love? Walk it. Enjoy the scenery and the fall colors.

Farmer’s Markets

They have fresh, in-season fruits and veggies waiting for you. They’ll also keep you active at least one day a week while supplying real nutrition.

Calendar It

Plan ahead and jot down times to go out and be active. If you don’t write it down, you know you probably won’t follow through.

Run

Jogging is a great way to enjoy autumn. There are also a ton of fall-themed races this time of year. Join a Halloween or pumpkin run. Race for cures. Sprint past zombies. There are races for everyone.

There are a million other ways to be active and outside this fall. Visit a pumpkin patch, host a haunted house or spook alley, meditate amongst the orange, red, and yellow leaves, do yoga at a state or national park, take your farmer’s market finds out to the grill, sip hot chocolate or herbal tea on your patio, rake your yard, toss the kids in leaf piles, and relish the shifting weather. Fall never lasts long, so enjoy it!
