Increase Activity in a Fun Way
Fun exercise is exercise you will likely continue. Spring is a great time to start a new habit. Everyone looks forward to getting out, being active, and having fun, especially after being cooped up all winter. Let’s face it, exercise might not be your favorite activity, but it doesn’t have to be boring. As a St. Louis, MO company, we like to enjoy what our city/towns have to offer. There are lots of great things to do in St. Louis that can include staying active as a family. Here are some of my favorites you can start to enjoy this spring.
St. Louis Zoo
Located at One Government Drive, St. Louis, MO, it is one of few free zoos in the nation. You can enjoy walking 90 acres of animal exhibits and attractions. The zoo is educational as well as a great way to enjoy the outdoors and increase those steps. Don’t miss out on their monthly events.
Great Rivers Greenway
This is 128 miles of greenways for you to explore in both St. Louis and St. Charles counties. Typically, most of these trails are paved. It’s an opportunity to walk, run, rollerblade or ride your favorite bike. Find a trail near you.
Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park
This park consists of 2145 acres located in Maryland Heights, MO. There is a variety of activities to do and something for everyone. In warmer weather you can rent boats, bicycles, canoes, kayaks or paddle boards. If you enjoy the scenery from land, then you’ll love the 3.8-mile paved trail or climbing the endless stairs. It’s ideal for walkers, runners, cyclists, or roller bladers. Pets are welcome too. Check out their website/calendar.
Swing-A-Round Fun Town
St. Louis largest batting cage located in both Fenton and St. Charles. They have both baseballs and softballs. What better way to have fun, be active and work your core with laughing and swinging. See everything they have to offer.
Variety is the Spice of Life
I believe this applies to many things, including exercise. See what happens when you incorporate new scenery and creative activities (even fun) into your exercise routine. I think you’ll be surprised what a difference a little fun can make. See you out there.
