The Best Outdoor Exercises for Summer

Looking for some exercise inspiration this year? Get creative and take your workouts outside! With Australia having one of the most beautiful summer’s in the world, why not mix it up and head outside for some vitamin D and seriously fun summertime activities.


Stand Up Paddle Boarding: Add some water to your workout this summer and try out stand up paddle boarding. Don’t be fooled by how easy it looks. You will get a total body workout while enjoying the summer sun. Engage that core or you’ll be taking a refreshing dip in the ocean!


Sunrise Yoga: Early riser? Grab a mat and salute to the sunrise this summer. Yoga is more popular than ever with online tutorials guiding you through the poses from the comfort of your home (or beach!) Embrace the calm of a beautiful sunny day, before the hustle and bustle kicks in. Don’t forget to nama-stay hydrated!


Rottnest Bike Ride: Jump on the ferry to Rottnest and soak up the waves before you hop on a bike and take on the island. With options to hire bikes from either Perth, or the local island bike shop, you won’t be stuck for options, and can take in the warm coastal breeze and explore all that Rottnest Island has to offer at your own pace. Plus, bike riding is a great way to get that heart rate up! Treat yourself with a delicious fruit smoothie after the day is done.


Beach Volleyball: Grab all your friends and tee up a beach volleyball tournament! Volleyball is a super fun way to get a work out and see all your friends at the same time! Plus, you’re only a few steps away from the ocean when your team needs a refreshing pick me up to help take home the winning title (complete with bragging rights). Don’t forget to slip, slop, slap to avoid those harmful UV rays.


Tennis: It’s not called the summer of tennis for no reason. Dust off those rackets you’ve had hiding for years and head down to your local court for a friendly match. Whether it’s duos or a one on one contest, tennis is sure to get those endorphins flowing. You might even discover a hidden talent and you’re sure to find the inspiration to come back!


Beach cricket: Back to the beach for an iconic Aussie favourite, beach cricket. No summer is complete without a friendly scratch match on a warm summer’s evening. Whether it’s old family rivalries, or friendly competition, you’ll be getting a great workout running along the sand, or even swimming for those sixes that make it into the water!
