Falling for Fitness: The Secret Benefits of Autumn Hiking

The fall scenery is beyond breathtaking but let us tell you a little secret. Hiking during this season is not just about enjoying the beauty of changing leaves. It's like a secret treasure chest of fitness waiting to be discovered!


So, imagine this: You, your friends or some well-deserved "me time," and the great outdoors. Ready to see why fall hiking is an absolute blessing for your well-being? Let's dive in:

  • Extra Calories Burned. Hiking on uneven terrain engages more muscles than walking on a flat trail (or that treadmill). Stepping over rocks, roots and other obstacles is great for your balance and posture. And guess what? A moderately paced hike can smoke 300 to 500 calories per hour.
  • Mental Health Boost. The peacefulness of the magnificent outdoors can’t be ignored. It’s a powerful mood booster and stress reliever.
  • Cardio Endurance.We love hiking because it naturally gets our hearts pumping. We're not hitting the trails with the primary goal of strengthening our hearts and lungs, but it's an added benefit that simply occurs along the way.
  • Build Those Leg Muscles. Your quadriceps, hamstrings and calves do the most work, toning and strengthening with every step. Plus, your core gets a workout you can’t imagine. 
  • Upper Body, Too. Add a pair of trekking poles or carry a backpack to add resistance work for your arms, shoulders and back.

Are you ready to hit the trails yet? There’s no better time than right now – literally. Mother Nature is doing everything she can to get you out there.


Make it an amazing day,
