Weather plays a lot as to when I go outside for a walk, therefore i really like the fall , but I enjoy summertime also, I geta greater since of actually burning calories as I walk more.

I chose noneof the above, as all of the seasons provide their own activities and opportunities for outdoor exercise.

What happened to all of the above?? I chose none of the above because if the weather is nice, nothing extreme, I prefer the outdoors.

I love to hike and last year I was hiking on snow in the upper elevations in July and the season ended in mid September when the first snow storm hit, so obviously summer is my choice!

Summer. It's easier to warm up and more difficult to injure a muscle in the heat.

Because I live in Arizona, the winter is definitely most conducive to outside activities like hiking, biking, walking, playing sports. Right now although it's still hot in the afternoons, the mornings are delightfully cool. Love my winter!

It's a toss-up between spring and fall - I love the cooler mornings and warmer afternoons for both, but we tend to have high winds for both, too!

The way outdoor walks feel in fall, when the air is just slightly cool and dry (or windy! windy is good too!) and there are CRUNCHY LEAVES to stomp through and frolic in -- there is NOTHING that compares to that! It is my favorite activity EVER.

Anytime because if the weather is nice - outside. If weather is bad - inside.

I work out at the gym year round. I enjoy being outside in the spring, summer and fall. However, I don't work out outside. When it is weather that I can do outside work that is just added exercise--not instead of the gym.

I workout at a gym year round so it really doesn't matter what season it is. When it is warm outside, I can wear my workout clothes to the gym and I don't have to stop to get a locker. When it is cold outside or when there is snow outside, I have to wear outerwear and put my things in a locker.

Activity options aren't seasonal. It is all about personal choices. ;)

I like the fall because the weather is wonderful (when it's not raining) and just being outside and taking in the sights and sounds of nature is relaxing. I like to look around at the leaves changing.

I think it depends on where you live and what activity. I live in So.Florida and Summer is too hot for just about anything outdoors. Although when you swim in the pool and work up a sweat you know you are getting some calories burned. Down here Winter is perfect to be outdoors and walk, run, go to the park and play with the kids, just about anything - however if I lived up north - I might be snowed in.
