There’s something about Malibu that makes you want to move, be active, and stay on your toes. Maybe it’s the cloudless blue sky, the flower-covered hiking trails, or the sparkling ocean beckoning, but one thing is certain– all of these picturesque attractions promise adventure for those who enjoy getting outdoors.
The people of Malibu, locals and visitors alike, know better than to let the variety of terrains and scenic beauty go to waste. Spend a day in Malibu and you will notice surfers, rock climbers, runners, bikers, open-water swimmers, paddle-boarders, hikers, yogis and more on a given day; these are only some options of many possible Malibu workouts. The possibilities for exciting experiences are endless. One thing that makes Malibu so special is that it is essentially one big playground, waiting to be explored. However, there are many other ways to keep moving and to get in shape before jumping into high-intensity activities.
Malibu locals take their physical activity seriously, whether they do it for fitness, the feel-good endorphins, or the adrenaline. No matter what you want to get out of being active, there is some kind of Malibu workout for everyone.
