Did you know that May is Physical Fitness & Sports Month?

Combined with sunny skies, spring flowers, and warm breezes, what more motivation do you need to shake off the winter slump and get back to having fun outdoors?

3 Activities Perfect for Physical Fitness & Sports Month

You don’t have to be a major league baseball player to hit Physical Fitness & Sports Month out of the park. Simply supplement your personal training with the great outdoor activities that Central Maryland has to offer.

(1) Golf at Turf Valley

Golf is a great way to relieve stress between sessions with your personal trainer in Ellicott City. For the championship experience, try the 18-hole courses at Turf Valley. If you prefer a less competitive game, have fun with your children or grandchildren at a local mini golf course.

(2) Boating at Centennial Lake

Nothing says “spring is here” like fun activities on the water. And if your personal training program doesn’t include aquatic exercise, this is your perfect opportunity. Columbia, Maryland has several lovely lakes perfect for fishing and boating. Don’t miss out on Centennial Lake!

(3) Hiking at Patapsco Valley State Park

Physical Fitness & Sports Month is the perfect time to explore one of Maryland’s treasures, Patapsco Valley State Park. With 170 miles of trails, including waterfalls and scenic overlooks, this stunning natural resource will not disappoint. Lace up those hiking boots – or if you’re feeling adventurous, hop on your mountain bike and enjoy the view.

Outdoor Activities and Physical Fitness

There are many creative ways to celebrate Physical Fitness & Sports Month in Howard County. When participating in any outdoor activities this spring, remember to keep hydrated and wear sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection.

Consult your physician and your Howard County personal fitness trainer before starting a new regimen, especially if you have a pre-existing health condition such as high blood pressure or lower back pain.
