Dumbbells in the Bluebells

This is Mary S, the dietitian, enjoying a workout in the bluebells with my friend Lynor who usually is found lifting dumbbells with our trainer Colby. She showed me how to adapt her indoor workout in nature.

Take your workout outside sometime in the next few weeks to experience the beauty of a wildflower called bluebells blooming as far as the eye can see. My favorite spot to experience these is the Greenbelt Recreation Area just off Ridgeway Ave, which is located between Highway 63 and Deere road. Most senses can be stimulated with a walk , run or slow Mt. Bike ride through these areas when all these fabulous flowers are blooming. These blooms don’t last more than several weeks so put this on your must see destination list. The blue beauties were spotted while biking in George Wyth Park, Riverside Trail, Black Hawk Park and around East Lake.


  1. Your own fit trail, looks like a nice change of pace. Creativity and variety are essential to maintain interest and focus for a fitness routine. My 8 year-old daughter is my coach for our back yard circuit training course, dips on low tree branches, pull-ups on the clothes line pole, a jump rope station, etc. and jogging between stations. She encourages me and times me at each station and enjoys being involved in my workout.
