Staying Active in the New Year

December 15, 2020

We can’t remember a time when everyone was SO ready for a year to be over so we could all have a fresh start. 2021 is that year for us! If you’re looking for ways to begin an active lifestyle, or even ways to shake up your routine, we have some ideas.

Find a New Gym

No, we’re not talking about the everyday, run of the mill gyms. We’re talking about specialized gyms that help you develop a specific skill. Here are a couple of options to check out for yourself:

  • Body & Brain Yoga Tai Chi
    • This gym combines yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong, meditation, and breathwork exercises to enhance your physical, mental, and energetic health. 
  • Wicked Core
    • This gym combines Pilates, cardio, and weight training in order to tighten, tone, and lengthen your muscles. Their classes are low impact and high intensity!
  • inSPIRE Rock
    • This rock climbing gym has offers for all ages. This 18,000+ square foot climbing surface is separated into 6 areas and gets changed up every week so that members get to try something new every time they come. 

Make a Run for It

The Woodlands 5k Fun Run is happening on February 27 at the Woodlands Waterway. Get your body moving and begin training to run or walk this race! The Woodlands Marathon is scheduled for March 6, and you can click here to sign up or donate. 

You can even take a look at virtual runs! You can participate from anywhere and have your medal shipped directly to you. Take a look at this list to choose one to participate in.

Get Outside

The Woodlands is full of hiking and biking trails that are perfect to get out in nature and get your body moving. George Mitchell Preserve is one of the best places to start. It’s located in The Village of Creekside Park and is a great spot to bring your pups or your family along for a walk or bike ride. Burroughs Park is another great option, located in Tomball. They have sports fields, a fishing lake, playgrounds, nature trails, and more. The WG Jones State Forest has been observed for resource education and maintained by the Texas A&M Forest Service. They have a trail map for their nearly 15 miles of trails for horseback riding and exercise as well as geocaching opportunities and two small lakes for limited fishing and picnicking. 

However you decide to move your body and get active this coming year, the positive effects on your body will be a welcome result. Staying active will help further your pain relief and can prevent further pain and injury.
