Encouraging Outdoor Activity and Fitness for Ordinary* Women

What’s an active outdoor woman? Take a peek!

Physical Inactivity is Your Enemy

Women over 40 are the most likely of anyone—male or female—to stop being physically active, especially in the outdoors. Here at Active Outdoor Women, we want to change that!

Physical inactivity is so unhealthy for our body.

On the flip side, physical activity is wonderful for our body—and also our mind, emotions and spirit!

We explore the different ways being active and being in nature heals and restores us, and helps keep us whole in body, mind and spirit.

Outdoor Activity Boosts Your Relationships, Too

Your daily walk, run, paddle or bike ride can be great “me” time. But taking others with you on your outdoor activities is wonderful, too! Sharing our outdoor experiences in amazing outdoor places with others builds lasting memories.

We talk about both a wide variety of outdoor activities we love to do, and outdoor destinations we love to explore. Trip reports, trails, campgrounds and more. We also write up gear reviews so you know what we’ve used and how we like it.
