Favorite Summer Workouts

Is your bod ready for the beach? Are you bored with your current exercise routine? Try these fun summer workouts to tone every zone from your arms to your abs to your ankles.

Outside Your Apartment

Fresh air is invigorating. There is no better time than summer to think outside the box and energize your workout with a new routine. Try doing multiple reps of this skateboard workout on your balcony or anywhere else outside of your luxury apartment. Outdoor yoga is another favorite way to stay fit and enjoy the great outdoors. Check out Yoga on the Rocks in the Denver area or Yoga in the Park in Manhattan. Many other cities offer outdoor yoga classes as well.

On the Beach

Sure, there are times when all you want to do on the beach is dig your toes into the sand and relax with a cool, refreshing beverage in one hand and a sizzling read in the other. When you’re refreshed and ready for some fun in the sun though, join in a game of beach volleyball—it is great exercise! Your thighs and butt get a work hard every time you squat to get under the ball, your core is engaged to help you maintain balance and your upper body gets a workout each time you bump, set or spike the ball. Not to mention that you burn more calories when you play on the soft, uneven sand rather than on a flat, indoor court. If volleyball isn’t your thing, try stand-up paddle boarding in the ocean or rollerblading on the boardwalk to stay in shape during the summer months.

In the Gym

Some days it’s just too hot to exercise outside. Instead of using that as an excuse to blow off your regular run, beat the heat with this innovative treadmill workout in one of our state-of-the-art fitness centers. Hiring your own personal trainer is another great way to mix things up and stay motivated.
