Get a great workout with a bike ride on the trails in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. It can be easy to overindulge in succulent seafood and mouthwatering desserts like key lime

pie and bread pudding on your Alabama Gulf Coast vacation. But, it can also be easy to stay on your exercise program on our sandy shores, as well. Most Gulf Shores condos and Orange Beach hotels offer fitness facilities onsite, making a good workout a possibility, day or night. But, there are other ways to get your heart rate up on your Alabama beach getaway. • Walk or run on the beach. You can burn two to three times more calories with a walk on the beach versus a walk on the treadmill. • Rent a bike and ride through the Backcountry Trail. You could burn up to 225 calories riding a bike for one hour at a leisurely pace. • Bring your kayak or rent one and paddle away. A 150-pound person can burn up to 340 calories in one hour by kayaking. • Paddle boarding is growing in popularity in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Rentals are available through several local companies. Light, recreational paddle boarding can burn up to 225 calories per hour. Pick a different activity each day of your vacation and add some new experiences and variety to your beach workout. Come to the Alabama Gulf Coast and discover a whole new state of “I can do this!”
