Weekend has always been a time to relax and unwind for a lot of people. For those who are busy during weekdays when there is work or school, sometimes weekend is also the only opportunity to work out and get some exercise. If you are one of those who only get fitness activities during weekends, you want options that will let you enjoy your short weekends as well – those that will let you have fun while staying fit. Below are some of your best options.
Running/jogging. This exercise activity can be done almost anywhere and anytime. Hence, even if you are on your Laguna getaway or on a weekend beach trip, it is something you can do. You may also have fun joining running events that are usually held on weekends. On weekends when you do not have any activity or trip planned, you can just go to some nearby places that are good for running, jogging, or walking. This exercise activity is not a solitary one; you can enjoy it with your partner, an exercise buddy, or even your kids.
Swimming. For those who loves the water and would often find themselves on a weekend out-of-town trip, swimming is a good exercise activity. Whether you enjoy it on an Olympic-sized pool, an irregularly-shaped resort pool, or the sea, swimming is a full body workout that will let you burn calories while having fun.
Biking. This is another activity that can be easily enjoyed with friends and families. Whether you get into biking for sports such as trail biking or just biking alongside your kids, this activity will let you burn some calories. However, you will need to get a good bike if you do not have one yet and it is best if you have a vehicle that can transport your bike so you can enjoy this activity in more places.
Frisbee. This sport is fast becoming popular because it can be easily enjoyed with very little equipment. You only need to get a good Frisbee and look for decent-sized space where you can run a little and throw the Frisbee around. Even if you get good enough to be very accurate in throwing and catching the Frisbee, the movements you will have to make when playing will definitely require good stretches and let you burn some calories. However, you will need to have at least one other person to enjoy this activity.
