In the sun-drenched haven of Calabasas, fitness isn’t just about pumping iron in an air-conditioned gym. It’s a lifestyle, woven into the daily routines, embodied in the natural beauty of the environment. Residents of the stunning Pacific coastline and Santa Monica Mountain foothills have long utilized their surroundings to keep fit, no home gym required.

When you think of our neighborhood, you envision the scenic hiking trails, endless beaches, and vibrant community. It’s here we find inspiration for a fitness regimen that doesn’t rely on fancy gym equipment but rather takes advantage of the world around us.

Outdoor cardio
In Calabasas, cardio isn’t confined to a treadmill—any outdoor space can serve as your cardio zone. There are miles of scenic trails to run, walk, or jog, offering a refreshing and natural backdrop. Start your day with a brisk walk or a run to boost heart health and help burn calories. Be sure to take in the scenery around you, breathe deeply, and engage your core for an outdoor holistic workout.

Yoga and stretching
Calabasas’ tranquil aura makes it an ideal setting for meditative practices like yoga and stretching. Even without a coastal view, you can create a serene yoga space at home. Besides promoting flexibility and core strength, yoga can help reduce stress and enhance overall well-being.

Bodyweight exercises
The locals’ summer-ready physiques are a testament to the power of bodyweight exercises. Push-ups, squats, lunges, and planks can be performed anywhere and are incredibly effective at building up strength and endurance. Don’t underestimate the challenge; you’ll be amazed at how much you can sweat with these simple moves.

The breathtaking Santa Monica Mountains are perfect for hiking, an underrated workout that strengthens your lower body and improves cardiovascular health. You can mimic a hike by taking long walks in your local park or climbing the infamous Calabasas stairs.

No matter how you choose to incorporate these fitness activities into your routine, you’re sure to stay fit, stay happy, and above all, keep it natural.
