Summer is the perfect time to get started with an exercise program or take your current fitness regimen to the next level. Whether you’re a beginner or you love crushing “extreme” workouts, these summer fitness tips can help you stay on track all season.

If you’re self-motivated and know what you need to do to achieve your summer fitness goals, go ahead and design your own plan. Balance intense workout sessions with active recovery on rest days to maximize your gains.

Yard work — mowing the lawn, gardening, raking — is also great exercise. Plus, it’s good for your mental well-being, especially if you spend most of your time working a desk job and staring at a screen.
Being outdoors isn’t so great for your health if you’re not prepared for the heat. Here’s how to stay safe and still have a great summer workout:
Sometimes it’s not safe for outdoor fitness even if you take precautions. But when temperatures climb or thunderstorms hit, don’t skip your workout! Try these indoor options instead:
One more thing: You can’t just “weekend warrior” your way through the summer and expect great results. Consistency is the key to success with summer fitness. Sticking with your workout plan will form habits to help you sustain a regular workout schedule all year long.
