Autumn is a transitional time of year. The leaves on the trees change, it becomes darker earlier, and the temperatures cool down. It is a favorite time of year for many people. However, these same changes can also lead to stress for individuals who tend to fall off the health and fitness wagon during the transition. There are many enjoyable opportunities to remain fit, or even begin a fitness program, in the fall that can work for everyone. Martial arts is one great option. Planning for seasonal changes, finding support from group exercise and embracing events and activities that the season has to offer are key factors in staying fit through the transition.
As the days grow shorter, cooler and wetter activity tends to move indoors a bit more. Too often that can lead to a sedentary lifestyle which will inevitably make it all the more difficult to navigate the sometimes dreary Oregon winter. Stay active!!!! Kung Fu is a great way to stay in shape. Don’t let the lack of sunshine or the cooler weather keep you from staying fit.
