Although our founding fathers were probably pros at hot dog and watermelon eating contests, Independence Day celebrations can be so much more. A big get-together is the perfect way to get outside and organize a group fitness activity. Here are 4 fun and festive ways to stay fit this 4th!
Run a Themed Race
Whether you were born in the USA or just born to run, you can always join a Fourth-of-July-themed race. Bring the whole family for a race that’s all about fun. Check out this state-by-state map of Independence Day races!
Play in the Pool
Bring the Independence Day bash to the beach or to a nearby pool this year. An afternoon of splashing is an easy way to sneak in some exercise while staying (and looking) cool. If aquatic fun isn’t enough for you, try these creative pool workout.
Join the Parade
Not to rain on your parade, but festivities can count as fitness, too. This year, get moving and march in your local Independence Day Parade. You’ll burn cals while having fun!
