4 Unique Ways to Work out in the Summer near Breckenridge, Colorado

With warmer weather and clear bluebird days, Summer near and around Breckenridge is the prime time to be outside and enjoy nature, and the fresh mountain air. It’s also the perfect time to work-out, get in shape, or stay in shape in more unique ways than simply going to the gym like the rest of the year. We have talked about how to get in shape for the winter Colorado ski season in the past, but here are fun workout ideas to fully take advantage of during the amazing summertime in Summit County, Colorado.


Trail Running

Of course, Breckenridge, Frisco, Silverthorne, Dillon and the rest of Summit County has a whole host of woodsy and mountain trails. What better way to get a great run or jog in than on a trail to catch the sun’s rays, listen to the mountain birds sing and distract yourself from the work-out with stunning views and the smell of nature? Of course, hiking is also a great work out, but with trail jogging you can be part of nature while getting a jog in instead of the traditional run on a treadmill or paved street. Trail Run Recommendation: Peaks Trail in Frisco – start at the end of 2nd Street in Frisco and explore the multiple hiking trails that consist of Peaks Trail, including Rainbow Lake. Feeling great? Consider trail jogging Peaks Trail from Frisco to Breck for the ultimate, more extreme trail run.
