6 of 8
Walking — or Hiking — the Dog
What has fur, four legs, and is dying to be your exercise pal? That's right: the family dog. Studies have shown that owning a dog can make you healthier, in part because you're likely to take more walks. But if your daily walks have become more like a chore, infuse some fun as well as fitness. Go as a family, pick different routes each night, and throw in some jogging. And consider taking the occasional hike with Fido, too, for an even better workout.
