Planning for your next adventure this summer? There is a wide array of activities you and your loved ones, friends, and family can take on and enjoy! With restrictions now eased, you can finally explore more trails! But since COVID-19 has not completely gone away, it’s still good to be mindful of your surroundings and take safety measures, not just for your own sake but for the people around you as well. Make sure you are fully vaccinated, complete with the booster shot. Follow safety protocols and observe social distancing. Always bring alcohol and take your vitamin C. See to it that your adventures are safe so you can have more!
If you don’t know where to start, we prepared a list of safe fitness activities you can try now that the sunny season has started.
Beach trips with hiking
Camping, hiking, and swimming? That’s the perfect trio to try this summer! Imagine spending your day hiking in small mountains and then spending the night camping on the beach? You get sun-kissed, you get to breathe fresh air, you burn fats, and you improve your muscular strength. All these you can do with beach camping and hiking.
But of course, don’t forget to take breaks in between. Hydrate and have some power snacks like nuts and fruits to keep you energized but don’t take too much that you get too heavy to continue hiking. After the hike, start setting up the camp by the beach. Pitch your tent not too close to the water to prevent it from reaching your space. Enjoy the breeze, maybe take a dip in the ocean and cool down, then settle and rest to let your body recover. With this activity, you won’t even notice that you’ve actually done a lot of exercises, which is good.
If you are in search of a device that will help you keep your health in check while on a trip, then the newly launched Garmin Fenix 7 is the smartwatch for you. This multisport GPS watch is packed with features that are perfect for outdoor activities and boasts outstanding 7-day-a-week wearability. With this device, you can track all your health stats and progress during activities.
When going out for a hike, don’t forget to strap the Fenix 7 smartwatch on to enjoy its Climbpro feature, which allows you to be better aware of your course. It also has the real-time stamina tool and recovery advisor, which are both useful during the entire hike.
Marathons, triathlons, and other sports activities
Joining events like a walkathon, triathlon, or any sports activities and attending workshops for yoga, HIIT, cardio, and the like with a group of people will keep you motivated to do your best. Most of these events come with a registration fee. But it’s a good investment if you want to kickstart your health journey. It’s an adventure that will motivate you more and with which you get to discover potential interests. You can also invite a friend to do it with you.
If you don’t know where to start, you can check out our growing Garmin community, which offers virtual classes and events you can join. You can subscribe to our newsletter and Viber group to get updated on these events.
For this type of activity, the Fenix 7 comes handy. It is equipped with different fitness apps and allows you to listen to music while you’re working your muscles and burning calories. Be in control and monitor your progress with the data and metrics your smartwatch provides. With this Garmin wearable, you get to train harder and smarter.
This is your cue to unchain your old bike and gear up for an adventure. Biking increases muscle strength and flexibility and improves joint ability. It also puts you in a good mood and decreases stress levels. These are just some of the numerous benefits biking offers. It’s environment-friendly as well!
