Trying to keep your New Year’s resolutions while on vacation can be difficult, especially if you’ve committed to improving your health and fitness. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to stay healthy while on vacation in Orlando. Continue on your path to a healthier you with a visit to one of Orlando’s most popular outdoor spaces – Lake Eola. Located in downtown Orlando, Lake Eola has one of Orlando’s best farmers markets as well as plenty of fun options for all levels of fitness. Check out these three fun fitness options the whole family can enjoy.
Do something healthy for your body, mind, and soul, and attend an outdoor yoga class at Lake Eola. Whether it is your first time trying yoga or you practice regularly, you’ll enjoy this multi-level yoga class. The class takes place on Sundays at 11 a.m. and is only $5 per class. Make sure to bring your own mat, as well as water, and dress in clothes that allow you to move freely.
Swan Paddle Boats
Rent an iconic swan paddle boat and disguise a light workout as a fun outing on the lake. The boat features two paddle seats and can accommodate up to five passengers. If you are feeling ambitious you can try paddling one on your own. Your legs will work up a light sweat as you enjoy the beautiful sights and float by the many real swans on the lake.
This 1.1 mile trail loops around the lake, providing you with scenic views of downtown Orlando during your entire route. Leashed dogs are welcome to accompany you throughout this well-trafficked trail, park, and area that hosts a variety of marathons and races throughout the year such as the IOA Corporate 5k. You can also walk the trail or ride your bike. After your workout, treat yourself to fresh juice at the many juice bars nearby or enjoy fresh eats during the Sunday farmers market.
