“When it comes to staying active, you can’t go wrong with walking on the Rail Trail, Greenway, or just around the block. I have a neighbor who has walked around the block every day since the pandemic started (4.0 miles a day) and has transformed herself and her health! I also recommend indoor workouts like Stretch Lab and Pilates or, if the weather is warmer, a nice round of golf.” – Ashley McMillan, REALTOR®/Broker
“If you’re looking for something more adventurous, I would check out indoor skydiving at iFLY. It is a great way to stay warm in this weather. – Michael Murphy II
“In addition to learning how to play pickleball. I have enjoyed taking in nature while walking the Anne Springs Close Greenway and hiking Crowders Mountain.” – Sarah Craft Curme, REALTOR®/Broker
“Indoor tennis is a great way to stay in shape without taking on the elements.” – Beth Parker, REALTOR®/Broker
“Try using technology to find short workouts! You can find just about anything on YouTube, Apple Fitness+, My Fitness Pal, the Nike app – there are a ton of options. Also, you can search for workouts that are as short as 5-10 minutes, and those that don’t require any equipment. Win-win!” – Shelly Rydell, REALTOR®/Broker
“Bundle up and head outdoors for a brisk walk or run on the greenway.” – Kimberly Young, REALTOR®/Broker
“There are tons of options for fitness during the winter. You can head to your local YMCA or enjoy the comforts of home with your own equipment like a ride on the Peloton.” – Courtney Hoppe, Assistant to the Kimberly Young team
