It’s time to try new things: there’s more to getting fit than what you already know.

We know how it is. We all want to stay in shape this year. Even as summer starts to fade away, it’s growing more important to make health a priority in our lives. That’s because, along with cooler weather and festive holidays, fall often brings a lot of sweet and savory snacks we all like to enjoy. And, while it’s hard for some people to feel active without a fun excuse like biking or playing games, there are still lots of ways to get fit. Here are a few of our favorite ideas for getting your heartrate pumping and feeling fit:

1. Ice skating

With the cooler weather heading in, it’s only suitable to celebrate in the best way possible: by going ice skating! In fact, ice skating turns into such a big event with the friends and family that you might not even realize you’re getting in a good workout on the side. So grab a friend, slap on some skates, and hit the ice for a fun way to get fit.

2. Playing sports

Exercise can be a chore. Especially if it’s something you’re not that into. However, we’ve found that getting your exercise is never a chore if it means we get to play a favorite sports! Whether it’s a quick game of soccer or you’re training to get better at basketball, playing a sport is one of the most exciting ways to get healthy, feel great, and get the heart pumping.

There’s nothing like a good old dance party to get us really feeling great about ourselves and make our bodies feel even better. And the best news of all is that it doesn’t take much work! All we do is make a quick playlist of our favorite upbeat songs, turn them up, and let loose! You don’t even need any equipment for this cardio. Hello, moves! Goodbye, lazy couch potato days.
