Get Outside Now.

These are three great articles showing the physical and emotional positive effects of getting outside with family and friends to exercise in nature. With temperatures crawling above freezing and spring just around the corner, it is time to start thinking of ditching the treadmills and ellipticals and hitting the sidewalks, boardwalks and trails.

We live in a special part of the country with the ocean, forest and mountains all nearby, so get off your glutes and use it.
