WORKOUTS WITH A TWIST Make Exercise Fun This Summer Summer is a time for fun! The days are longer, so why waste the extra sunlight trapped on a treadmill? There are plenty of great opportunities to exercise without feeling bored out of your mind. Consider one of these fun activities you may have never tried before. Stand-Up Paddleboarding

If you can find a court near you, this game is certainly worth trying. It’s the intense cousin of tennis.
