Source: 4 Easy Ways to Stay Fit on the Beach
Going to the beach for a lazy, relaxing day can be a well-deserved treat, but getting moving near the sea can also be pretty delightful. If you want to go beyond the typical laying out and magazine-reading fare, here are four fun and easy ways to get moving on the beach.
- Take a long walk: You may be tempted to just lay out on the sand, but going for a long walk is a great way to get active. The best part? Walking on soft sand works your legs more than just going for a walk on flat ground. But if you're planning on walking for a long time, then do your best not to go barefoot the whole way. Follow these tips for running in the sand.
- Don't just float: Floating out on the open sea or doggy-paddling around may be relaxing, but swimming in the waves can give you a full-body workout.
- Throw a Frisbee: This game may make you nostalgic for your college days, but tossing a Frisbee can be an awesome activity for the beach. Your arms, legs, and core all get worked out by the aerobic exercise of reaching, running, and tossing.
- Bring your yoga mat: Practicing yoga on the beach can be an active and relaxing experience. If you're not sure where to start, then try some Sun Salutation A on the beach to get going.
