What is your Summer exercise level? Let’s be honest!

Most people believe they get the most exercise during the summer months. Sometimes people are fooling themselves into thinking that they are getting more exercise in the summer than they really are.

Most people will tell you that they are most active, and therefore, get the most exercise during the summer months. Sometimes people are fooling themselves into thinking that they are getting more exercise in the summer than they really are.

Summer seems like an ideal time to get outside and exercise; it is warm out, and the sun stays out late. However, think about the real amount of exercise you get during the summer, not the amount of fresh air. While golf is one of my favorite sports, I know it is really not exercise because there is nothing heavy, and I am not out of breath at any time. The beach is also great fun, but unless you are jogging in the sand or swimming a long distance, the beach doesn’t belong in the fitness category either. Finally, work, driving, movies, and TV are still part of our lives in the summer, and work against our fitness level.

So, do start or maintain your fitness plan in the summer via tennis, basketball, jogging, hiking, or going to the air conditioned gym/personal training studio, because otherwise you may not be getting as much exercise this season as you think.
