4 Ways to Take Your Workout Outdoors This Spring


With warmer days and sunnier skies, it’s springtime! Make the most of Atlanta's mild spring weather with these outdoor workouts near your Alta Dairies home. Whether you love to exercise with group classes, solo sessions, or partner workouts, check out these awesome activities. Get outside before it heats up!

Get Into Nature

Grab some water, your fitness tracker, and hit up the great outdoors for a solid sweat session. Whether you bring a friend or trek it on your own, getting out in nature will make a huge positive impact on your mood and your physique. Visit Big Creek Park to run the trails and soak up some vitamin D or take your pup out for an invigorating jog at Freedom Park. Hike or rock climb at Stone Mountain Park for an extra-adventurous activity. Looking to kick it up a notch? Head out for some mountain biking at the Chattahoochee River and Nature Preserves.

Fitness Parks

From high kicks up and down the bleachers to running laps around the track field, outdoor fitness parks offer the perfect setting to crush your workout. Level up your fitness routine and push yourself with a dedicated environment to get your sweat on. Check out the Active Oval at Piedmont Park for a first-come, first-served open running track arena. Make your way over to an outdoor field for some calisthenics, yoga, or even partner workouts.

Venture Onto the River

What better way to steer from the standard gym routine and practice social distancing than exercising on the water? Spend your afternoon on the Chattahoochee River for a kayaking or paddleboarding session. Grab your gear and exercise on the river for a solid upper body and core workout.

Join an Online Fitness Group

Exercising can be tough on your own – setting goals, holding yourself accountable, sticking with a schedule, and keeping track of your progress. Teaming up with an online group is an easy way to keep on track with your fitness routine and stay connected with your community via technology. Try joining virtual teams like My Fitness Pal, Noom, a Facebook group, or even YogaWorks. For more online classes, check out this assorted list of workout classes!
