Summer is here officially with the opening of the pool. The weather has cooperated for the most part. I'm sure you have read a lot about getting your workout in different ways since you can spend more time outdoors. And it is true that you can play ball with the kids or do some gardening but nothing works the body the most like a good exercise class. When you are out playing with the kids or mowing the grass you might stop to talk to a neighbor or help your child with his or her pitching style while in class there is nothing that might cause a slow down in activity. Class has the benefit of constant motion. Most exercise classes are at least an hour so you can count on keeping you heart rate up above resting for a longer period of time. Try and stay as close as you can to your regular exercise regime. Enjoy playing with the kids as great family time or think of yard work as an extra bit of exercise.
