yoga-early-morning-exercise

Stretch with the sun

On days when I know it's going to be a scorcher, I set my alarm for an early morning yoga session.

It's a win-win for me: I get my workout done before it gets too hot and I start my day on the right foot.

run-at-the-gym

Take your toughest workouts inside

I love training outdoors whenever possible, but exercising in an air-conditioned gym (or house) is the best way to keep me cool.

I pick my toughest workout of the week (usually running intervals on the treadmill) to do indoors. I don't even bother attempting them outside in the summer!

racket-men-play

Pick up a racket

I love a good game of tennis in the summertime, but when it's too hot outside on the courts, I swap my racket for a different type.

Racquetball and squash are typically played indoors, so I stay cool while getting in my workout.

men-run-rain

Run in the rain

I love running outdoors, but the summer heat doesn't always make it easy for me. When rain is in the forecast, I like to plan my run during the showers. A little rain cools me off, and it's a nice change of pace from my usual super-sweaty runs.

Plus, just the thought of running in the rain is fun and exciting, which prevents me from skipping my workout all together!

exercise-pool-heat

Get a wet workout

This one might seem like a no-brainer, but exercising in a pool or lake is an instant way to cool off.

Try a new activity like paddle-boarding, check out your local gym for a water aerobics class, or round up some friends for a competitive game of water volleyball. Whatever you decide to do, you'll get a great workout!

fun-water-gun-kids

Cool off like kids

When it's boiling outside, play some of those fun games from your childhood.

Run through the sprinkler or have a squirt-gun and water-balloon fight. When the sun sets, plan a late-night game of flashlight tag. These games are a guaranteed good time. I mean, isn't running around with a big smile on your face the best type of exercise?!

water-park-adults

Plan a day at the water park

Water parks aren't just for kids!

Spending the day at a water park will keep you cool and active all day long. Play in the wave pools and ride the slides, and you'll keep moving for hours. I promise, it won't even seem like exercise!

tri-quick-swim

Plan a mini triathlon

Have a free morning on the weekend? Plan a mini triathlon for you and a friend, but finish with the swimming part so you can cool off at the end of your workout. 

Try this: Run for 20 minutes, bike for 30 minutes, and then swim a few laps in your favorite watering hole.

Hit the mall

Too hot to take a lunchtime walk outside? Take your workout to a nearby mall with air conditioning. Lace up your sneakers and get your heart pumping without overheating!

run-cool-park

Find a cool spot

Wherever you happen to live, there are probably certain areas where joggers, walkers, and bikers flock because they are cooler—literally.

Maybe it's a boardwalk near the ocean or just a shady path in a local park. Seek out the least hot places to exercise and become a frequent visitor.

women-stretch-night

Join a night league

It's much more enjoyable to exercise without the sun blazing down on you.

Stay motivated to exercise once the sun sets by joining a team that meets in the evenings. From softball to kickball to running groups, there's something for everyone.

walk-dog-sunset

End your day with a walk

When the sun is low in the sky, I like to take an evening stroll around the neighborhood with my husband and dog. It's a nice way for us to get in some exercise when the temperatures aren't as high, and also to relax after a long day.
