Autumn is the best time to enjoy the outdoors. Whether it’s sunny, misty, raining or snowing, there is a richness to the world I don’t want to miss out on by staying indoors. Growing up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, I would “take it to the farm” when completing a fall workout routine. I still enjoy exercising outdoors during the fall.

When the fall weather reaches its peak and pumpkin, apples and squash seem to be everywhere, it’s time to take your workout outside to truly enjoy the outdoors. You can fit movement into your everyday, biking to work, taking the stairs and parking farther away. Staying active can also serve as the focus of your weekend as a long hike or visit to the pumpkin patch.
