Clovis Walking Trails
Clovis has amazing walking trails. Most of the trails are paved and provide beautiful scenery like trees and parks. There are many rest stops along the trails. It’s a fantastic, safe way to get outside with other people and get active! You can ride your bike or walk. Map out your trail today for an all-day adventure or just take a morning walk.
Recreational Sports in Clovis
If you love sports but haven’t played in awhile you should definitely check out the City of Clovis Recreation Leagues. They have softball, basketball and floorball (it’s like hockey with no ice!) leagues for adults. There are also many beautiful golf courses in the area or if you love tennis check out the Clovis Tennis Club.
Hiking Trails Near Clovis
Let’s face it, one of the best reasons to live in Clovis is our proximity to the beautiful surrounding foothills and mountains. Alltrails.com is a fantastic resource for finding trails for the beginner to the advanced hiker. The San Joaquin River Gorge is considered an easy hike and is an excellent way to get outside and get active!
Clovis Community Education Exercise Classes
If you are just starting out on wanting to be more active and are not quite ready for an all day hike, try just taking an exercise class! The great thing about Clovis Community Education classes is that there are other students who want to get active but are not thrilled with the gym environment. Our teachers are passionate about teaching people to get active and be healthy.
Here are a few reminders of why getting active is good for you!
Reduces stress – Exercise produces endorphins in your brain which helps calm your whole body down. It also can be meditative which gets your mind off of your problems and you focus on the task at hand.
Regulates weight – Regular exercise can help you lose weight and gain self-confidence. It can help you to feel good in your clothes and about how you look.
Fights health problems – We know there are many benefits to exercising but the biggest benefit is that exercise helps fight health problems. You can reduce your medications and gain overall better health. Here is a great CDC article.
Boosts energy – We all need more energy! Regular exercise can increase how you feel on a daily basis. It can give you the energy you need to make it through the day.
Promotes better sleep – Studies have shown that good sleep is essential to good health. Exercise can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.
Social and fun – when you commit to getting active with other people it not only holds you accountable but it holds your exercise partners accountable too. By joining an exercise class, you are not only helping yourself but you are also helping other people!
Community Education has the best fitness classes in town! It’s a great way to get active!
