Gym work outs got you feeling blue? Does the static environment of working out on treadmills watching fake news make you feel worse instead of better after a work out? You are not alone!
As Floridians, we tend to forget that we live in paradise and that exercising outside is something we can do year round. In this series, I will share with you some of my favorite “alternatives” to the gym that are right in our backyard!
Did you know that there is outdoor gym equipment located on SE 5th Ave one block north of Sheridan Street? Or a 6 story tower at Anne Kolb Nature Center where you can work your glutes and enjoy the sunrise or set surrounded by the freshest air Dania Beach has to offer?
Today I will highlight the The Airport Greenbelt Park! This park is conveniently located along the North end of Griffin Road between Us-1 and I-95. The Greenbelt offers hilly terrain (perfect for interval training), Tropical landscaping which lend to butterflies, birds and yes, the ubiquitous green iguana. I love cruising past tranquil ponds and towering royal palms and poincianas while working up a sweat!
But wait! there’s more.
The Airport Greenbelt offers the absolute best plane watching!
Situated just steps from the South runway, the greenbelt allows you to see commercial jets, seaplanes and runway operations from every corner of the park! I love running the rolling hills and contemplating where these flights are going and where I AM GOING NEXT! (exercise is mental too!)
