5 Workout Scenes from the Cape

My off-Cape family and friends have been melting in the heat and humidity, but we've been spoiled here on the Cape. The weather has been pretty much perfect for outdoor workouts during our two week stay.

In addition to some group activities, we kept up with our regular daily workouts making use of what was around us.

There was lots of morning yoga in the side yard.

Biking on the bike trail.

Slow sprints in the 'hood.

Weight training in the backyard.

Slow running in the 'hood.

It's going to be hard to leave in the morning, but we have more adventures coming our way!

Finding Fitness at the Beach

One thing I have been able to do a lot of here in Dubai is walk.

On our sightseeing adventures there are endless sidewalks and the public beaches are lined with boardwalks.

On top of that, there are kilometers and kilometers of jogging paths (going with the UAE language here) including along the beaches.

I was completely impressed with the miles of rubbery running paths and then we we found the outdoor gyms. These stations are placed up and down the beach along the boardwalk and are free to use. I love a good outdoor workout.

Love the directions provided at each station.

But wait, there's more! On our last outing we found an outdoor gym that mrC said was similar to Venice Beach (never been there so I wouldn't know). Next to it was a small storage with bikes used during spin class. This outdoor gym is better than Venice Beach because there is staff to help people. You can read more about it here.

Do your parks/beaches have workout equipment?
Would you use an outdoor gym?
