A happy life is one that is healthy. And the better—and younger—you will look and feel if you take care of your body by living a healthy lifestyle. Summer is slowly fading, which means one thing: it’s time to begin active planning for fall.

You’ll be spending time with a special group or individual, you’ll surely have a good time, and you’ll get in some major exercises without ever realising it. Choose one or do them all since none of the workouts we provided are bad. You can thank us afterwards for the suggestions!

Kayaking is full of healthful benefits for your body. The flora, memories, and fitness benefits will not disappoint whether you kayak along a river or on a lake. To begin, the American Council of Exercise states that if you weigh 150 pounds, you may burn up to 340 calories every hour (via Visit NH). This is more than you’d burn when riding!

The low-impact aerobic paddle action through the water will increase upper body strength and flexibility while being gentle on your joints. Other advantages worth mentioning? You’ll tone your chest and back, strengthen your lungs, lower your blood pressure, and alleviate tension all while getting in some excellent cardio. We think he’s a keeper!

Fly fishing is the next of five enjoyable fall hobbies that burn calories and keep you fit. If you’ve never tried fly fishing before, fall is an excellent time to pick up a pole and a light lure. Millions of people go fly fishing every year for a variety of reasons. It not only promises to be a completely tranquil and gorgeous environment, but it also has enormous physical and mental health advantages.

If you’re like most people, you probably image an old person nodding off in a rowboat and ask, “How much of a workout could it possible provide?” That’s how much a total-body exercise costs! When fly fishing, you’ll be standing, casting your rod, and hopefully hauling in a few fish. Wading against the current delivers even more fitness benefits, since it strengthens your legs, back muscles, and complete core. Believe it or not, according to Organic Life, over 65% of fly fishing fans go for the fitness advantages (via HSS).

Consider horseback riding if you want to burn off some energy while having a great time. This action not only burns calories but also improves balance and coordination, as well as core strength.

According to Dr. Dennis Sigler, a horse specialist with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and a professor in the department of animal science at Texas A&M University in College Station, “Riding horses is a well-known form of exercise. Riding a horse at a walk, trot, or canter for 45 minutes can burn up to 200 calories.”

Dr. Sigler also mentions that equestrian riding may be an excellent choice for people who are unable to perform other activities such as jogging or running, saying, “Some [people] have joints that just can’t tolerate a jog, but if they can ride a horse and burn 400 calories a day, that’s huge.”
