  • Bring your dumbbells outside!
  • Walk to the gym instead of taking the car.
  • Join a regular softball league.
  • Brown-bag your breakfast and stop at a park to eat on your way to work.
  • Ask your trainer to show you body-weight exercises you can do on the lawn.
  • Plan an outdoor picnic in a park with your girlfriends, and end it off with a friendly soccer or flag-football game.
  • Practice your yoga poses in the backyard.
