When you walk through downtown St. Pete, the core of city living seems to be embedded in a healthy lifestyle. There are organic pizza places, places to purchase local fish, people taking their dogs for a walk, sunset sailing, and so much more to experience. In this city, you don’t need a traditional gym to get fit.
Here are our Top 5 Ways To Get Fit In St. Pete Without Going to the Gym
1. Go for a Walk or Ride Your Bike
Our city has 360 days of sunshine thus dubbing it the “Sunshine City”. With all that sunshine and the consistent bay breezes, a walk or bike ride outside is a perfect thing to recharge your body and mind. There are miles of trails with waterfront views that sure beat staring at a TV screen while you walk on a treadmill. You can stay around the city or go to nearby Boyd Hill Nature Park with six miles of trails that include a Sand Scrub Trail and a Pine Flatwoods Trail to experience the beauty of Florida.
2. Climb a Wall
Vertical Ventures just opened its doors in St. Pete and has over 18,000 square feet of climbing spaces. They have rock climbing classes that will help you reach the top of their 40-foot tall mountain climbing walls and get in shape. These classes literally rock!
3. Do Yoga
Every weekend, The SunDial hosts a free outdoor yoga class with Lululemon and some amazing local yoga instructors- for free. There is also a variety of special classes taking place in Vinoy Park, like the one the eve of the St. Anthony’s Triathalon. Tropicana Field is the stage for an annual yoga class that takes place before the Tampa Bay Rays play. A little yoga mixed with your favorite local team makes for a very relaxed fan!
4. Get on the Water- SUP style
With the city being surrounded by water, many people are choosing to get off the land and onto the water for their fitness. C-Ride SUP store hosts weekly Stand-up Paddleboard Classes for beginners and more advanced athletes. The Body Electric Yoga Studio has a weekly SUP Yoga class for those that want to do their yoga on the water.
Life is fun when you exercise outside. Guaranteed that an outdoor exercise class will bring out the thoughts, “Wow! I am so lucky to live here!”.
