If you’ve started to notice the joggers, dog walkers and all-around outdoor enthusiasts popping up in your neighbourhood over the past few weeks, you’re not alone. With the nicer weather comes that need to get outside and make the most of these warmer months (because, before you know it, it’ll be snowing again).

The good news is that if you’ve got fitness on your mind, there are just as many strength and toning exercises you can do outside — for free — as there are in the gym. Goodlife Group Fitness Instructor Shelly Lockless showed us how adults can “play” at the park too, all while tightening and toning your arms, legs, stomach and butt.

She recommends starting with a brief, five-minute cardio warmup (jumping jacks or perhaps walking or jogging to the park). Then, perform 10 to 15 reps of each exercise. Circuit through them all two to three times for a complete workout; head outside three times per week to see results in as little as four to six weeks!
