Get Healthy for YOU this Summer with a Well-Deserved Central Florida Getaway

For the last few months, we’ve been cooped up inside. The occasional outings of walking to the mailbox and jogging with your dog have gotten you out of the house, but now is the time to step up your activity! Summer is here and we’ve prepared a helpful list of healthy ways to get moving – both physically and mentally – Kissimmee style. It’s time to focus on yourself and get into that well-deserved nirvana mindset. 
 

Sunshine is Good for the Soul

An early riser can beat the heat of the summer sun and start the day off right. Drink plenty of water and head out to the great outdoors. Whether you take the long walking trail or bike along beautiful paths, breaking a sweat in the morning will give you more energy throughout the day. In sunny Kissimmee, Florida, you can visit Celebration Bike Rental to start your day and explore the trails around the city. With the shade of the trees and the stillness of the water, a peaceful morning is just what you need. 

Take to the Skies

Your mental health is just as important as your physical well-being, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the fun ways you can take a load off. Fly above the vast landscape around Kissimmee in a hot air balloon and say goodbye to the worries down below. Look ahead to the bright white clouds and breathe in the fresh air of a new day. Are the clouds a tad too high for your liking? The zip line at Orlando Tree Trek Adventure Park might be just what you’re searching for! Soar above the trees and water at a comfortable speed. The freedom of dangling your feet and the wind rushing through your hair could be the different perspective you were looking for. 

Healthy Food to Keep Up the Energy

Speaking of appetite, what better way to fuel your body than with the freshest and most satisfying delights while here in Kissimmee. Sure, sweets are delicious, such as the macarons at La Macaron, but you can always try nature’s candy – fruit! Or better yet, enjoy a leafy green salad, a high-protein lettuce wrap, or locally produced ingredients for your at-home meal at the vacation home. See below for just a few places to find these healthy delights: 

  • Columbia Restaurant for the Original “1905” Salad tossed with iceberg lettuce, ham, Swiss cheese, tomato, olives, Romano cheese, Worchester sauce, and their famous garlic dressing. 
  • Ford’s Garage for crisp lettuce surrounding a delicious burger and served with your favorite seasonal vegetables.
  • Kissimmee’s Farmers Markets are stocked with fresh, locally-grown ingredients for any snack or meal you can take home – or to your vacation home rental. Use these ingredients for healthy fruit shakes or smoothies and chopped vegetables to snack on.

Enjoy the Peace of the Open Waters

There’s nothing quite like spending the evening out on the water with your friends and family. Whether you’re teaching your kids how to fish or relishing the serenity, fishing in Kissimmee is unlike any other experience. With so many coves and grassy marshes to explore, there’s no doubt your time will be well-spent. Visit the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes with a guide and work on your skills with a professional or stroll around Kissimmee Lakefront Park

Time to Reflect and Stretch

With so many beautiful open areas around Kissimmee, yoga is a great activity that you can do anywhere. Yoga is a fantastic way to stretch out those muscles and focus on yourself. Not sure where to start? Our friends at AMP’D Training and Sports Performance created a Kissimmee-inspired class just for you. This special video is made with Orlando Cat Cafe to bring you the most tranquil space for a yoga class. Enjoy! 

Dance to the Beat

Listening to music recharges your body and moving to the beat is even better. Listen to your favorite playlist or Experience Kissimmee’s new Spotify playlist here. It’s specifically created for you to enjoy wherever you move – from outdoor exercise to indoor family time.

 

Time spent on you is never wasted. Relax and invest in yourself while enjoying the Kissimmee outdoors. For more inspiration, follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Our digital photo albums will hopefully spark a need to experience Central Florida your way.
