Are you worried about a mountain getaway derailing your healthy lifestyle? Going on vacation doesn’t need to equate to a hiatus from your fitness routine. In fact, you may find that the higher elevation in Lake Arrowhead adds an extra challenge to your existing regimen.
Studies have shown that exercising at a higher elevation increases red blood cells, which in turn, increases the amount of oxygen in your blood. Lake Arrowhead’s location of over 5,000 feet above sea level makes it ideal for experiencing these benefits.
What fitness opportunities does Lake Arrowhead offer?
In an earlier blog post, we referenced several of the numerous hiking trails available on our mountain. Getting out in our beautiful forest and experiencing the sights, smells, and sounds of the mountains in the fall is a treat for the senses. The crunch of pine needles underfoot, combined with the sweet sappy scent of dripping pinecones, and the crisp fall air is a welcome respite from the noisy cities below.
