Keep Your Resolutions: Staying Active in Greater Raleigh
Friday, December 30, 2011, 8am by visitRaleigh
Fitness goals are the number one form of New Year’s resolutions, but keeping them can sometimes be tricky when traveling. If you’re visiting Greater Raleigh, rest assured you have nothing to worry about, as the area is full of opportunities and activities to keep you active and fit for the duration of your stay.
If you’re in town to do some shopping, you can get your workout in at the mall or shopping center of your choice. Mall walking programs are popular in the area, so you’ll find plenty of power walkers in sneakers to join for a few laps. Cameron Village’s Love Your Heart campaign shows you how to turn your shopping trip into your newest cardio exercise with a map of how many steps you’ll take around each area of the shopping center.
In the rare event in which your hotel doesn’t have a gym, visit one of the many area gyms where you can get a visitor’s pass for your stay. Mix it up with a workout you’ve never tried before, like rock climbing at the Triangle Rock Club, or an intense session at CrossFit Raleigh.
Who says working out can’t be fun? Strap on your skates and get your heart rate up at one of the in-line or ice skating rinks in the area. You can even go for a swim or take an aquatic class in the indoor pool at the Triangle Aquatic Center, which is open to the public.
