Maryland’s Weekend Warriors
What are you doing with your free time this summer? Find a way to incorporate fitness to your fun this weekend. Repke Fitness is located in Millersville, Maryland, nestled in the heart of Anne Arundel County. Residents of this area are lucky to have a lot of outdoor adventures within a drivable distance.
Light Street Cycles offers a fun way to tour the city in your own backyard. Pedal through Baltimore on one of many tours offered by this bike rental tour company. The Gwynn’s Falls Trail Bike Tour is a guided 16 mile ride that mixes urban and bucolic scenery. The Waterfront Tour takes cyclists from Fort McHenry to Little Italy with a waterfront view of a few neighborhoods in between. The Jones Falls Trail Tour is slightly more challenging than the first two tours, with hills that are rewarded with gorgeous views of the city.
Stand Up Paddle Boarding
Stand Up Paddle Annapolis is located on the Severn River in Crownsville. Newbies can take a lesson spending part of the time on land and part of the time getting acclimated to the water. Experienced paddle boarders can jump right in. Boards, paddles, and life jackets are provided. Check out some paddleboarders in action on their website here.
Just an hour drive from Millersville lies Harper’s Ferry National Historical Park. Take a hike on the best suited path for your fitness level, or enjoy the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers with fishing, canoeing, kayaking, tubing, or swimming.
Repke Fitness is located in the center of Maryland where oceans or mountains are just a short drive away. Adding active fun to your free time is a great way to help maintain the shape that you work so hard for through personal training sessions in the studio. As you gain strength, you can challenge yourself to new outdoor activities.

Active.com is a great resource for 5ks, biking, hiking, and more. Plug in the dates and find a race or event near you. Another great idea is to plan summer vacations around athletic events around the country. Running a 5k in another city is a great way to take in the sights.

On rainy or unbearably humid summer days, channel your inner child and head to the roller skating rink! According to LivingHealthy.com, a person weighing 160 pounds would burn 548 calories in an hour of roller skating while a person weighing 200 pounds would burn about 683 calories. Lace up those skates and ask the DJ to turn up the hits from the 80s or 90s and have fun!
