Want to Make Health and Wellness a Priority This Fall, The Frasier? Here’s How!

Most people wait until New Year's Day to get a fresh start on their commitment to personal health and fitness, but why put it off any longer, The Frasier? Fall is a great time to renew a promise to stay active and eat healthy, as the cooler air and changing leaves make outdoor exercise both comfortable and scenic, and the season brings a bounty of autumn produce. Not sure exactly where to start your personal wellness journey? Read on for two suggestions!

1) Stock up on farm-fresh produce at the farmers' market.
Access to seasonal, locally sourced produce is made easy thanks to Alexandria's many farmers' markets. There are five farmers' markets that occur regularly near The Frasier (two are open year-round), each offering their own unique cornucopia of fresh produce, just-baked bread and pastries, pressed juices, coffee, cheese, and other wholesome, natural foods. Pick up a bouquet of seasonal blooms while you're at it!

2) Take your workout outdoors.
With summer's heat and humidity subsiding, it's the perfect time to exercise outside. You could run, hike, or bike the Mount Vernon Trail, or perhaps rent a bicycle from Wheel Nuts Bike Shop or Bike and Roll Alexandria. Rather lace up your sneakers and pound the pavement? Alexandria's Pacers Running Store hosts weekly fun runs, which are a great way to torch calories while soaking up the sights of the Potomac River.
