Working out not only complements this life choice, but also serves as a stress-relief to people. But how can you add some variety to your regular workout? Consider changing where you exercise and the types of exercises you do! Holiday Springs RV Resort possesses idyllic open areas that are the perfect place to take your workout out of the gym and into nature. And the following workouts are perfect for outdoor performance!

Trail running

It’s time to trade your treadmill for nature’s tread, Holiday Springs nature trail!

Trail running is a great way to enjoy nature and challenge yourself. Trail running is generally more stimulating than running on a treadmill because you need to adjust your pace and stride based on the terrain. Also, you are more likely to burn more calories running outdoors. This is due to the varying degrees of incline and decline. Another benefit is that running in nature provides a more sensory and visually interesting run. And you feel like you’re actually getting somewhere, because you are. The nature trail at Holiday Springs is the perfect place to do this nature workout, as you will be able to be active, while enjoying the view.


There’s something so relaxing about taking a deep breath and stretching in nature.

It has been demonstrated that seeing elements of nature around you can increase your relaxation and internal focus, which are important parts of your yoga practice. So practicing yoga in nature not only will help you relax more, but also give you an opportunity to connect with your surroundings in our serene community. At Holiday Springs, you can practice yoga outside in our natural spring deck, or in the nature trail.

Weight and Strength Training

Weight and strength training is a great way to keep your heart healthy, have good body composition, and develop strength. The good news is that this workout is not limited by the space where you do it and the equipment you use. So, take this workout into our nature trail, natural spring deck, or any other free natural space using free weights or your own body weight. This will for sure increase the good you’re doing for your body. Weight training is one of the many nature workouts deemed to improve mood. So, give your mood a dose of happiness by taking your weights into nature.
