Summer is a difficult season for exercise, especially here in the notorious Atlanta heat. However, here are some easy and creative ideas for summer workouts that can get you outside.

Swimming – You don’t have to own a pool to swim. There are many public pools around Atlanta that are open in the mornings for lap swimmers. Swimming is a great way to burn a ton of calories in very little time. It’s a great morning workout routine as it wakes you up and really gets you ready to start the day. Many YMCA’s have outdoor pools in addition to their workout facilities, so if a public pool is far from your house, there are other options for swimming as well.

Biking – Biking, no matter where, is a great form of exercise, because just like swimming it can help burn lots of calories with little time commitment. In the summer heat, the best biking paths are on trails. All over the Atlanta area, city parks offer bike trails. They’re usually shaded by trees and can be a cool alternative to pavement. Sometimes following a river or stream, you can burn easily burn calories while enjoying the scenery.
