Fitness Enthusiast? Outdoor exerciser? Looking for great workout locations to mix up your routine? In the Adelaide area? This series of upcoming blog posts is for you and this is the first of my ‘local fitness destinations’ around Adelaide, South Australia. Hopefully it will help you find a new fitness spot to add to your workout adventures. I also love hearing from others, so if you have a great location that you enjoy training at… please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be more than happy to feature it.
I am dedicating part 1 to the Seacliff Ramps and Stairs. Seacliff is a picturesque beachside suburb (16.8km from the Adelaide CBD, approximately 27 min drive) and the ramps and stairs are located just off the main Esplanade at the Seacliff Yacht Club. This is already quite a popular cardio workout destination so it can get quite busy at popular times. It will certainly get the heart pumping and the calories burning! There is a set of ramps and a set of separate stairs which are both great for either walkers or runners. They are an achievable length (not too long but definitely long enough to get a great workout when you do multiple repetitions). If you are a serious exerciser and like competition you might like to time yourself each time you do it and try to beat your times. Alternatively, it’s a great workout to do with a group of friends. There are benches and seats at the top of the ramps which are great for a little rest between rounds or you can use them for added exercise and do a set of dips, bench pushups, step ups in between your ramp sets!!).
This location ticks many boxes:
- Easy to find
- Plenty of parking
- Suitable for all fitness levels (just vary how hard you go or do more or less laps and try to improve each time)
- Family friendly (you can even push the pram up the ramps in the not so busy times if you dare – this will really get you working)
- It is an all round, cardio and strength workout so it is great if you are time poor and only have a short amount of time to fit in a workout
- Enjoy the great outdoors and fresh air
This is one location I love training at and have done FitM.U.M group sessions here before. Please subscribe to my newsletter here to find out about any upcoming group workout events!
Go and hit the trails! Enjoy xx
