We know, after a full week at work sometimes all you want to do is lay on the couch and watch a few movies.
Although it might feel good in the moment, long term those couch potato habits aren’t going to help you reach your health and fitness goals.
This weekend it’s time to get up and get active. And with summer in full swing, it’s the perfect time to add some fun to your weekend with an activity or two.
Keep reading for fun and active weekend activities you can do with your partner, your friends and family or even solo.
In Australia we’re blessed with so many beautiful natural mountains and coastal areas. Get active on the weekend and explore a hiking trail in a beautiful area near you.
A lot of these trials are easy walking with beautiful natural surprises along the way such as waterfalls, native wildlife and fantastic views.
All you need to do is pack some water, snacks, sunscreen and make sure your phone or camera is charged to take those beautiful photos.
Bike riding might divide some people but it’s a great form of exercise which allows you to travel further and faster than walking alone.
If it’s been a while since you hopped on a bike the weekend is the perfect opportunity to get out, get some fresh air and see another side to your city or town.
Ask a friend or family member if they’d like to join you and make an afternoon of exploring your area.
The weather is warming up so take advantage and hit the beach.
Yes, a beach day does count as getting active on the weekend so grab your swimmers and your boogie board.
When you’re at the beach just be careful of moving those couch potato habits from your living room to the sand. Although laying back and soaking up the sun might be tempting, get up and enjoy all the beach has to offer.
Go for a swim, play some beach volleyball or just go for a walk along the waters edge.
You won’t even feel like you’re exercising.
Start A Project
You don’t even have to leave your house to be active over the weekend.
A great way to get up and get moving is to throw yourself into a home improvement project.
Maybe you’ve been wanting to re-do your outdoor area or repaint the living room, whatever it is, these kinds of projects get you up and keep you active for an extended period of time.
Not only will you tick that job you’ve been meaning to do off your list but you’ll be up, active and actively burning calories throughout the day.
Join A Social Sport
If you want to get active and have fun, you can’t look past joining a social sports team.
Whether you’re a fan of volleyball or tennis there’s a social sports team for everyone and it’s a fantastic way to be active on the weekend as well as enjoy yourself and the social aspect of being a part of a team.
