The 4th of July holiday just recently passed, and I’m sure we all ate extremely great food — however not the best. Typically, the holiday is that one cheat day, but when Monday returns we’re looking for ways to work it off. So here’s a list of five fun summer exercises you can do to get a quick workout in without you having to go to gym. Have some fun and enjoy the beautiful summer weather while burning calories.


  1. Bike Riding

Find a bike trail and or even take your bike for a spin around your neighborhood. If you don’t own a bike, there might be some places where you can rent a bike.

  1. Roller Skating

Although this is equally an indoor activity as it is outdoors, skating during this summer weather is definitely a must! Whether it’s roller blades or roller skates, this will get your whole body moving, leaving you with a complete aerobic workout.

  1. Trampoline Park

This is always a super fun calorie burner to engage in with friends. All of the jumping, running, and sometimes falling gives you that sweat and exercise you need.

  1. Outside Jog or Run

Put on your good running shoes and take a jog on a trail, through your neighborhood or even by the lake to soak up all that nature has to offer. Make sure you don’t forget your music.

  1. Tone Every Inch On a Park Bench

Now if you’re just absolutely yearning to get a quick leg and ab workout in, there’s no need to rush to the gym. Complete the two exercises in a nearby park or by the lake. Bring a mat and use the benches to your benefit to do your crunches, sit ups, lunges or leg lifts.
