Getting Outside Might Just Be What The Doctor Ordered

 Temperatures are heating up, and you know what that means: time to get outside! In Michigan we all cherish these months spent outdoors and Grand Rapids is even taking advantage of this urge to get active. Late April the Downtown Grand Rapids district announced it would deploy six outdoor fitness stations along the Grand River trail. This new equipment is totally free and available to the public for use at all hours of the day. These pieces of equipment include a cross elliptical, hand cycler, chest press and much more giving all of us here in West Michigan the opportunity to get outside and exercise. How exciting!

Amy Ritsema from OnSite Wellness got together with Grand Rapids own WZZM 13 team to discuss the benefits of getting outside for your health and well being. Watch the video below:
