Take advantage of the setting
A beautiful beach destination is a great place to scorch calories. “Jogging on the beach works your muscles harder than jogging in the city,” says fitness expert Brendan J. Fox. Plus, the sand cushions the impact, which means your body will experience less repetitive stress. Post-run you can hit the water to cool off with some swimming. If the ocean looks more appealing than the pool, Fox recommends swimming lengthwise along the shoreline, rather than straight out to stay safe.
