Going to the gym regularly is a step towards fitness, but coming back home and being your same lazy self is an even bigger step backwards.
With the invention of new gadgets and gizmos, most people have failed to realize how inactive and sedentary they have become. There was a time when you had to walk to the grocery store to buy your groceries, the option of getting it delivered to your place did not exist. This and other similar instances where our body was called to action played a big part in keeping us active and fit.
These daily activities helped burn calories and stay in shape and complement those regular trips to the gym.
We have compiled a list of activities that you can do outside the gym to complement your efforts inside the gym. Some of these can be incorporated into your daily lifestyle, others can be tried over the weekend.
Combine it with healthy food, you couldn’t ask for a better lifestyle.
Here are some interesting and fun ways to continue on your path to fitness even outside the gym.
We hope you have fun trying them out.
1. Go on a Hike
Hiking is a good physical activity, not to mention the spectacular view you would come across.
2. Walk as far and as long as you can
Walk from home to the Metro station, or from the Metro to work, but make sure you walk.
3. Dance to the beat
Dancing keeps your body moving and makes you sweat. It is good for losing cals fast!
4. Rock Climbing
Rock Climbing is hard and fun at the same time. Whether at a climbing gym or outdoors, you're going to get that rush! Rock Climbing is a good exercise for your legs, arms, and back.
5. Video Games which make your body move
Ever tried the Nintendo Wii, PS Move or XBOX Kinect? You'll be sweating in no time.
6. Climb a tree
Climb on a tree or balance on a fallen tree. These exercise help develop the core and abdomen. Been long since you did that? Revisit your childhood and climb that tree.

8. Have a go at Martial Arts
Nothing is as cool as trying Martial Arts. Growing up we all imitated those fight sequences, and now's your chance!
9. Cartwheels and Handstands
Handstands are tough, but those of you who can't do a proper handstand, try cart-wheels or somersaults. Handstands activate your core, so go outside and get upside down
