Eco-Friendly Tips for Exercise
We all know that exercise is good for the body, but it can also present you with some opportunities to help the environment in the process. Depending on the types of activities you choose, it can not only help keep you healthy, but it can also help reduce your overall carbon footprint. Here's a look at some things you can do to not only improve your physical fitness, but also improve the health of the environment.

Walk or Bike to Work



If you live close enough to your place of work, consider walking or biking instead of driving your car or even taking public transpiration. It doesn't get more eco-friendly than this! Each day, people all over the world release harmful gases into the environment, just because they need to get to work. If enough people walk or cycle to work, it can begin to make a dent in our collective carbon footprint.

Skip the Gym



The gym is a hub of physical activity. However, it takes electricity to keep the gym up and running! Whenever you use a piece of cardio equipment, for example, you are using more electricity than you would have if you had just done your cardio outside. Consider running, cycling, or walking instead of doing your cardio at the gym. You can also do your weight training at home or outside.

Do Your Workouts Outside



There is no better place to workout than the great outdoors! Sure, skipping the gym an working out at home can help make an impact on your carbon footprint. However, if you do the majority of your workouts outside, that can help reduce the carbon footprint even more, since you don't really need electricity to take advantage of the outdoors. To make this time even more special, consider taking up an outdoor sport, such as skiing, hiking, mountain biking, or even rock climbing.

When it comes to exercise, it's a good idea to make the experience as eco-friendly as possible. You can do that by finding ways to reduce your carbon footprint. For the most part, if you exercise outdoors, you can not only exercise in an eco friendly way, but you can also
