5 Summer Activities That Will Cause You To Work Up A Sweat–Even On A Cloudy Day

2. Riding your Bike

Riding your bike is an effortless exercise and is a fun way to spend your day with friends. Also, it's free transportation and can save you gas money!

3. Swimming

A great upper body and core workout is kayaking or stand up paddle boarding. And a great way to catch some rays on a sunny day :)

5. Walking/ Running the Beach

Walking and running in sand is a phenomenal calf muscle work out. You'll be sure to work up a sweat!

These are activities we do on a daily basis during the summer; however, we sometimes fail to realize the impact they have on our body. You might be a little more active than you think!!
