Go rock climbing

This is one of the best arms and back exercises, and at the same time you get to feel like a badass. This is the perfect activity to do with a group of friends. All rock climbing clubs have different difficulty levels so you can level up! Check out True North Climbing, one of the well-known Toronto Rock Climbing gyms, for more info.

Play active video games

Games such as Wii Tennis, Wii Fit, and Just Dance are pretty intense and make you sweat when you put your back into it!

Ride your bike

Biking to work, a friend’s house or school is such a convenient way to get your exercise in throughout the day! In the winter, biking outside can become dangerous but if you enjoy bike riding you can always join a spin class! York also offers spin classes at the Tait McKenzie Centre.

Do some housework

This sounds super boring but it’s a convenient way to tidy up while getting in some cardio. Blast your favorite song and clean as fast as you can before the song finishes. Make a game out of it!

Sometimes we don’t have time to go to the gym or we find it boring/unmotivating. That’s okay! The gym is not for everyone; try some of these really simple and fun activities and it won’t even feel like you are exercising.
