If you live in San Diego and you work out indoors, you’re doing something wrong. This week's gloomy weather aside, there’s not a single reason to remain inside unless your job or Netflix addiction demand it. Whether you prefer the agony of interval training, the challenge of waterborne yoga, or the masochism of spinning, you can do it al fresco. In the sun. And the breeze. This list is by no means exhaustive, but it’ll get you active outside before sundown today.

 

Outdoor Spinning

You no longer have to stare at the accumulating puddle of sweat produced by your neighbor in a cramped spin studio. Join this roving spin class that pops up on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:45 a.m. and noon. Spin and Go plans to bring their outdoor classes to Balboa Park, Kate Sessions Park, and North County, but for now you can punish your quads at Liberty Station. Founders of this recently-launched company have trained NFL players. They will also come to your office with their bikes and make your boss suffer right there alongside you and everyone from accounting. Individual classes are $20.

 

Sunset and Full Moon Yoga

In San Diego, the world is your yoga studio. We’ve got outdoor yoga classes like some cities have subway stations. You could do worse than striking a tree post at sunset or under a full moon in Pacific Palisades Park in P.B. Bird Rock Yoga regularly offers these classes (beginning March 12 and March 31, respectively).

 

Boot Camp

You’ll find medicine balls and partner drills galore at the interval training-based workout classes offered by Wired Fitness. Their morning and after-work classes are available in various al fresco locations in Mission Bay, Carmel Valley, Solana Beach, and La Mesa. Find specific location information here. First class is free. San Diego Core Fitness also offers boot camp-style functional fitness at outdoor locations like Morley Field in Balboa Park.

 

SUP Yoga

When you can’t decide whether to go to yoga or for a paddle there’s always SUP yoga, the not-so-ancient discipline of holding yoga poses while balancing on a stand-up paddleboard made for the purpose. Bliss Paddle Yoga holds all-level classes in Mission Bay, $40.
