What time is it? It is summertime. Now is the time to go outside for fresh air; now is the time to eat fresh vegetables like lettuce and carrots; now is the time to schedule a vacation--perhaps to the beach. It is a good time to leisurely ride a bicycle around town or try to float down a slight incline on skateboard. The newest trend in summertime fitness is finding pleasure in outdoor activities with friends and family.

Here is a colorful slideshow for inspiration on healthy outdoor fitness. The newest trend in fitness for this summer is to go at a slow, steady pace: Enjoy the moment! Take time to smell the roses, and plant a bush or two in the backyard or on a patio deck. The best time to go outside is anytime. If the sun is too hot then wear longer, cool clothes as well as a wide brim hat and sunglasses. Drap a towel around your body at the beach in order to enjoy the ocean scenes without getting sunburned. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Breathe deeply all the clean outside air--open the lungs and simply inhale deeply while thinking what wonderful summer!

Yes, the trend in fitness today is to enjoy outdoor activities on a social level without the pressure of competing. Play a game of volleyball, frolic in the ocean waves, swim laps leisurely in the outdoor pool, go for a walk with a friend on a shady street sidewalk or around the walking path at a park. Enjoy the summer sunshine and be active for good health and fitness!
