Smart Exercise Solutions to Beat the Heat in Style

We’ve all missed the great outdoors at some point recently. Everyone knows by now that burning calories whenever and wherever you can is solid advice, especially after a year of semi-constant confinement. Still, the SoCal climate is not always totally conducive to a sun-soaked sweatfest.

For those days when the weather is friendly enough, it’s arguably easier than ever to discover a specialized strategy to score some exercise outside. However, when the idea of going for a run or taking a swim doesn’t quite capture your interest, these smart solutions can jumpstart your motivation to keep you looking and feeling your best, all summer long, and beyond.

The Ultimate Home Gym

“Mirror, Mirror, on the wall, who’s the fittest of them all?” No, this is not rhetorical or far-fetched to ask. You can now utilize a sleek and savvy slice of technology to stay fit, as trainers speak to you from a 4-foot tall high-definition screen that doubles as an actual mirror. This impressive device is jam-packed with customizable and interactive content, spanning more categories than you can imagine.

Whether you’re confined to your home, or just don’t feel like braving the weather, this amazing device has the power to change the way you look at working out. When you can easily decide how long and what type of exercise you want to do, and be guided from the comfort of home, while keeping an eye on your form, you can fully take charge of your workout in an empowering and unparalleled way. It does mean an up-front cost that may be gasp-inducing at first glance, but when stacked up against a monthly gym membership fee, it’s actually super comparable (a year and a half of an average gym payment is enough to pay off a Mirror). So if you know for sure that you’d be replacing regular classes or other costly exercise plans, it may be fully justifiable. The reviews are overwhelmingly positive, and even initial nay-sayers typically become converts and champions of Mirror. The fitness system is quickly building a rave-review laden reputation for itself that is difficult to deny.

The Benefits of Borrowed Bikes

Have you experienced the convenience of renting a city bike and simply returning it to your destination? The trouble with owning a bike (and biking anywhere) is having to lug, lock, and transport your bike for any distances or returns that may not be so bicycle-friendly (“Do you have room for my bike?” might sound familiar). But this shouldn’t stop anyone from opting to pedal their way to a local destination.

Biking is a low-impact exercise that allows you to travel significant distances with minimal downsides. It manages to deliver on exertion, without compromising a consistent wind factor to allow for ongoing cooling.

So next time you’re going across town, consider hopping on an affordable, accessible, and eco-friendly set of wheels. Metro Bike Share is relaunching, with plans to increase its 54 Westside locations by 13. Choosing from a total of 67 locations to pick up and drop-off will make this mode of transportation more accessible than ever. With so many locations, chances are good that you’ll frequently and easily be able to skip a good amount of traffic and get yourself some bonus exercise, all for a fraction of the cost of driving.

Modernized Motivation and Monitoring


There’s a variety of ways to utilize apps and devices to amp up your exercise routine. From fun forms of cardio to structured, detailed, and guided workout programs, and everything in between, apps like Fitocracy are connecting users worldwide, as they share and manage their fitness goals and accomplishments. This type of system allows for a healthy amount of ego to fuel the pursuit of your best workout. There are even smart sportswear companies like Sensoria, which specializes in socks, shirts, and sports bras that collect and deliver detailed information and analyses of the wearer’s workouts. 

Beyond apps, the market of fitness tracking hardware is becoming exceptionally advanced. Many of these systems for tracking your health also include nutritional guidelines and added insights, such as heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and tips for eating well. They also encourage goal setting and accountability.

Surprise Yourself

There really are no limits to the current and creative ways you can choose to lean into your personal fitness. With an unbeatable home workout system, plus reasonable, regional, responsible bike rentals, and a touch of tech-fueled beneficial bling, achieving your fitness goals can become not just easier, but more enjoyable.
