How to Exercise on the Beach without Anyone Knowing You're Working Out.

It's that time of year again! When Cookouts, days at the beach, and crazy schedules fill our summer months it's so surprise that healthy eating and exercise often get put on the back burner. Here are some way to make sure your day at the beach includes some exercise as well!

Some easy ways to be active at the beach:
Surfing/ body surfing 
Walking in the water knee/waist deep
Get up off your chair/ blanket often and walk down to the water
Dig a whole/ build a sand castle 
Play catch/frisbee
Picking up seashells and sea-glass 
Flying a kite
Sea kayaking

Some not-so-easy, but fun ways to keep moving:
Water skiing
Paddle boarding

For some bodyweight exercises that are less discreet, but great to do at the beach, check out   Movement is Medicine: 5 Bodyweight Exercises You Can do Anywhere.

Don't forget the sunscreen, and always stay hydrated! Check out of my favorite kind of sun protection (hypoallergenic, anti-aging, all natural, never tested on animals) here!
