The Best Ways to Exercise in Long Beach in Spring 2020
Walk or Run up Hill Street
East Hill Street is known for its intense incline. Thankfully, this offers the perfect place to stretch your legs and build some muscle. Whether you choose to walk or run, be sure to go both up and down the hill. Going downhill activates different sets of muscles and keeps your workout balanced.
Exercise with a View
Head to Bluff Park on Ocean Boulevard right next to the Long Beach Museum of Art. The Bluff can be used in a variety of ways to help you stay in shape. Simply walking or jogging can make for a decent workout. If you’re looking for something more intense, do lunges, squats, or even sprints or incorporate some “box jumps” using the benches around.
Long Beach Fitness – At Home
Long Beach is home to many amazing gyms and fitness studios. Since the outbreak of Covid-19, these studios have closed but that doesn’t mean they can’t keep us sweating. Many gyms are now offering online classes to help you stay in shape right at home.
