Take A Hike

Monday's Fit Tip: Go Take a Hike

Seriously. Last week a friend and I ended our thirty minute power walk with a brief hike into one of Pleasant Grove's hiker friendly canyons. Not only does your body have to juggle your balance on the rough terrain, but your butt benefits from trekking up the incline. If you keep a pace quick and steady enough to elevate your heart rate, then you're getting a GOLDEN workout for free.

GOLDEN? What's that? Unlike some of the cardio and weight machines in the gym, this exercise challenges more than one muscle group at a time. The more muscles worked at one time THE BETTER!

Hiking = Glutes, Hams, Quads, Calfs, and Abs = GOLDEN workout
(you get my abbrev. don't you?)


And did I mention it's free? You know I'm a sucker for free stuff. Get out there, wear comfortable and supportive shoes and Go For A Hike!

Maybe one day you too can be like this guy here who didn't hike through the mountains for fifty long and crazy miles, no HE RAN!

ORDINARY EXERCISE ROUTINES LEAVE YOU FEELING TIRED AND DEPRESSED, BUT NOT HIKING IN PLEASANT GROVE CANYON!! JUST 30 MINUTES A DAY, AND YOUR BUTT WILL BE THANKING YOU!

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! YOU WILL ALSO MEET PEOPLE WHO MAKE YOU WANT TO PUNCH THEM IN THE FACE BECAUSE THEY RUN FOR FIFTY MILES!

I'll let you punch me in the face if you can catch up with my butt.

But seriously, You can do it. The canyons in Pleasant Grove really are great.
