If you’re trying to find the most optimal exercise to help you get back into shape, we highly suggest that you consider hiking. While our title seemed a bit definitive, it is true that these things are subjective. However, if you’re unsure which kind of exercise is right for you, we strongly recommend giving hiking a try, and here’s why.

A Different Kind of Adventure

So many people who want to regularly work out don’t do it. But why? For some people, the reason they don’t work out is that they don’t see themselves fitting into the “gym culture”. This doesn’t just mean people at the gym, but also people who do workouts at home. It’s all under the same basic umbrella, and there are some who just don’t enjoy this kind of exercise.

However, hiking is the opposite. It’s completely off the grid. It’s dynamic, adventurous, and full of nature and life. If you’ve always struggled to connect to standard gym exercises, perhaps it’s because you’re looking for more adventure in your workouts. If that’s the case, consider embarking on a challenging hike, where you’ll get a rigorous workout while having the time of your life.

You’ll connect with nature, see some animals, work up a sweat, and possibly fall in love with the entire experience. What do you have to lose?
