How to Stay Active: 7 Ways in Bradenton

Summer is a time to relax, enjoy beautiful weather and embrace a clean slate. For Manatee County natives, lots of sunshine is something to be enjoyed all year round; but the warmer months are still a time to revive those personal goals and reboot your fitness regimen. Here are seven sure-fire ways to keep your new workout routine consistent:

How to Stay Active:

1) Spend your summer running along the beach.

Experiencing the sunrise as you jog along the sandy shore is something that everyone should try in their lifetime. Not only are you tackling a serious workout, but you’re getting fresh air, enjoying beautiful sights and beginning your day on a high note. While running along the beach can be just as beautiful when the sun is setting, an early morning jog can boost your energy, productivity, and mood for the rest of the day!

2) Utilize one of the many local walking trails.

Known for its lush wildlife, Bradenton is home to many parks and preserves. Explore Arrowhead Nature Trail’s “coastal habitats”, bike through a picturesque series of “mangrove tunnels” on Coquina Baywalk or jog through scenic foliage-framed trails on the Emerson Point Preserve. You can access all of the nearby hiking trails here:

3) Invest in a gym membership.

If you’re having trouble keeping motivation, consider investing in a fitness center membership. This can transform health habits because you are more likely to utilize your monthly pass and more likely to get involved with a structured class that can help you maintain a consistent schedule! Bradenton offers many gyms, such as Snap Fitness, Anytime Fitness, and Planet Fitness.

4) Try something new.

If you’re finding that a traditional gym isn’t for you, consider a niche fitness studio. These smaller-scale facilities offer yoga, pilates, dance and other types of similar classes. Get ready to sweat at local studios such as Three in One Yoga, Thrive Yoga and Spa Northwest. These are perfect options when looking for how to stay active.

5) Integrate your furry friend into your fitness regimen.
