25 Oct Don’t Quit, Stay Fit While You’re on Your Weekend Getaway in Marietta, Georgia
No matter if you’re an indoor or an outdoor sort of person, Marietta has you covered with a variety of stay-fit activities. We know your health is important and vacations shouldn’t use ALL your cheat days at once. So, we’ve scouted out a few ways for you to stay fit and healthy for however long we have you with us.
Take it Outside
Marietta and the surrounding area are rich in outdoor activity and geological history. One of the best ways to experience the outdoors here is to explore the Mountain to River Trail. Perfect for walkers, joggers, and bikers, this trail stretches from Kennesaw Mountain to Marietta. Pick up a guide at the Marietta Visitors Bureau and start exploring the best of our Georgia landscape.
Up for an adventure and art discovery? Log your steps by touring Marietta’s collection of public art. With over 20 installations all within a few blocks walking distance, this trail is the perfect blend of sculpture and mural. While you’re at it and still have your walking shoes on, check out the list of Black Heritage Walking Tour sites. Ranging from the Civil War through Civil Rights eras, each site is of historic significance to freedom and the fight for equality.
Keep it Inside
Maybe you’re not an outside person or maybe our unpredictable Southern weather has you trapped inside. Either way, there’s plenty of ways to get your heart rate up and flex those muscles.
Looking to break a sweat in a brand new way? Studio Bungee springs into action with their fun and unique fitness experiences. Suspend yourself with giant bungees from the ceiling and bounce around with a beat. You’ll have so much fun you won’t even realize you’re burning calories and strengthening your body. All skill levels are welcome, and there are plenty of classes to keep the whole family involved.
Move beyond the physical fitness regimen with BeYoga. With a variety of yoga classes ranging from hot yoga, pregnant yoga, kids’ classes, vinyasa, Pilates, and more, you can align mind, body, and soul whether you live nearby or are only visiting for the weekend.
Recover Like a Boss
Burning calories means you’ve got to recover your body the right way, and Marietta has some of the tastiest and healthiest options out there. GOOD Kitchen + Market is a great choice for sit-down or on-the-go eats. Their thoughtful, whole-foods selections are designed to please the taste buds, and their 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. hours (closed on Sundays) mean you can swing by and fuel up any time of day. If you prefer to sip your way to health + happiness, try UpDog Smoothies & Juices. This local smoothie/juice bar concept is driven by the notion that real fruit tastes good. What you order is what you get. So, you know everything in your cup is 100% goodness with zero mystery (and zero unpronounceable additives!).
