Health Tip: Autumn Workouts
"December 31 over a drink is too late to set goals and make promises," says Justin Price, owner of The Biomechanics. Fall, on the other hand, is a great time to start a fitness program. Fall can be a treat for the senses: the crisp air, apple picking, pumpkin carving, a gorgeous canopy of fall foliage, and the crunch of leaves underfoot. These months are a great time to exercise outdoors and enjoy cooler temperatures. "Walking, hiking and cycling are all awesome in the fall," says Todd Durkin, MS, fitness coach and owner of Fitness Quest 10 in San Diego. "It's a great time to do beach activities because it's so much less crowded," says Price.If you're near a lake, try kayaking or canoeing, for an excellent whole-body workout and a great change of pace.
