Turn off the TV, move away from the computer and put down the electronic gadgets!  Fall
is here and it's the perfect season to exercise outdoors. With the cool crisp air, the trees beautifully adorned in their metallic colors and the wonderful autumn smells, outdoors is the place to be. Walking, hiking, biking and rollerblading are some easy-to-do activities that provide you the
opportunity to have fun outdoors while keeping fit.

Walking is one of the easiest and best ways to exercise. It's easy on the joints and you
don't need any fancy equipment, just a good pair of walking shoes. Get into a good fitness routine by taking a walk after dinner. Discover park trails and take in some new scenery. Activities that involve walking, such as apple and pumpkin picking, are fall activities that you, your family and your friends might enjoy.

Take a bike ride around the block or in a local park, or try rollerblading. Fun for people
of all ages, rollerblading improves fitness and stamina levels. You only need minimal equipment to get started - just skates and protective gear, and you're good to go.

Outdoor chores can also provide exercise and there's the obvious advantage of adding curb
appeal to your house. Raking, weeding and lifting burn calories and provide a good cardio workout. Consider planting a fall garden so you can be active outdoors and later enjoy its beauty.

Heading out into nature is a great way to soak up this colorful season and enjoy the
outdoors before the cold weather sets in. Try exercising with a friend or family member with a similar fitness level so that you can encourage and support each other in your quest for fitness.

Exercising outdoors can provide healthy advantages for your mind as well as your body.

Always consult your physician before starting a new exercise regimen.
