3 Tips to Take Your Fitness to the Streets

With the sun shining and temperatures on the rise it’s time to move those workouts outdoors and the downtown Toronto core is a great place to make that happen! Here are three ways you can add some fitness fun into your downtown living!

1. Why not Walk?

Forget public transit this summer and take yourself on a walking tour of our downtown core. There is much to see and do by foot, and you’ll save money while at it.
Have some extra time on the way home from work? Take yourself on a walking tour of some of our cities great public art. Check out the urban forest and soundscape in June Callwood Park which runs from Fort York Boulevard to Fleet Street or the mighty red canoe at the top of the hill in Canoe Landing Park.

2. Create Your Own Park Circuit.

With the many benches and boulders in public park spaces within the downtown core turn your next trip outdoors into a fun urban boot camp. With a sturdy park bench consider tri-cep dips, push-ups, or plank to build some muscle and add some fun. Why not head over to the Rogers Centre and get in a few stair intervals while you’re at it!

3. Join a Tribe.

Sweating with a friend or crew is how I hold myself accountable and make my workout a social experience. The downtown core is filled with free boot camps, run clubs, and even stroller fitness groups for athletes of all levels and abilities. My favourite fitness crew? Obviously it’s Tribe!

Whether it’s joining Tribe’s free Sunday morning yoga in Canoe Landing Park, a meet up with other mom’s at their Tuesday mornings stroller walking club, or one of their many weekly runs for all paces. there are lots of ways to connect with others while sweating it out in Toronto’s downtown core.
