Houstonians don’t often associate the outdoors with their concrete jungle of a city, but in fact, with thousands of acres of parkland in the metro area, residents don’t have to travel far to get their wildlife fix. With the restoration of Buffalo Bayou Park nearly complete, Houstonians now have even more places to be active and exercise outdoors. What we would do in the park this summer? Meet up with one of our personal trainers in Houston, of course! From boot camps to yoga classes, there are plenty of ways to train outdoors in Houston’s finest parks. Here’s a few of our favorite spots to work out around the city.
