Why you should try out these outdoor sports!

Sometimes you want to do a totally different workout and not just exercise in a gym. You can effectively exercise outdoors. When you are on vacation, you do not always have a gym nearby. Outdoor sports can be great fun, but what are fun sports that you can do outdoors? I have listed a number of challenging workouts.


You have probably heard of ‘hiking‘. There are many Fit Girls who do this workout and I can tell you it’s great fun! Of course it depends on where you live, but otherwise look for a place where you can hike. Especially on vacation, this is a very nice workout that you can do almost anywhere. For example, go with sunrise or sunset, then you can immediately take beautiful Instagram photos. Two birds with one stone! 🙂


This can certainly be a good challenge for yourself! You can make it as fun as you want, go to a beautiful and peaceful environment. Gently start building the run and then take on the challenge. First warming up with leisurely walking, then fast walking and running and again fast walking and running again. That way you really challenge yourself!


We all know walking the stairs and we do it regularly. You have a special device for this in the gym, but you can of course also do this outside. This workout is super good for your legs, buttocks and core. So let’s do this! You can also do it together with your workout buddy, that’s even more fun!


Jumping rope is typically something you used to do as a child. But who says you can no longer use it in your workout. Go outside and jump rope! On the internet you can also find various exercises with a jump rope. So make it a challenge, that’s how it stays fun!

Do you prefer to exercise indoors or outdoors? Let us know! We are very curious about what kind of workout you prefer to do. 🙂 

Outdoor cardio workout? Hit the stairs!

It is finally hot on this side of the world and I’m currently trying to enjoy it as much as possible. I’ve been avoiding public transport like a plague, and biking everywhere just to feel that warmth on my skin! This means that I can easily understand not wanting to go on a treadmill in a gym while you can instead be outdoors soaking up some rays. There are many options when it comes to working out outdoors, and this time it includes stairs. So get on up and active with this video! It’s time to hit the stairs for an amazing cardio and leg strengthening workout.

If you’ve been reading my articles for a bit, I think I’ve made it pretty clear by now that running and I are not friends (if I’m running, it’s most likely because I’m being chased). Yes, it’s that bad. I’ve accepted that this is just who I am, so I’m always searching for new ways to get some cardio in my life without having to actually..run. There’s jumping rope, using the elliptical, dancing, but then there’s also working out using stairs.

Climbing stairs is a very effective way to improve your endurance and tone up your muscles. You’re going to hit every part of your legs and make them stronger, while your heart will be elevated and you get a killer calorie burn. It’s a great supplement to any other fitness activity you pair it with (like strength training).

I found the video below and immediately knew that I had to share it. It asks you to do 5 different exercises on the stairs 10x each and I absolutely love the diversity of them! Instead of heading to the gym, take advantage of the weather, find the stairs at your nearest park and get busy. Good luck!
