    Get in Shape

    We hope everyone had a very Happy New Year and got to spend some quality time with family and friends. With the calendar turned to 2015, many people make their yearly resolutions on ways they can better themselves. Some of these will fall by the wayside, but we are here to make sure that you stay the course with your resolutions this year!

    One of the more popular resolutions is to get fit or get in shape. Some choose to do this alone, and most of the time end up giving up shortly after they start trying to get fit. What some people don't realize is that doing activities in groups makes you stronger and also gives you more of an incentive to work at something!

    That is why we here at Bent’s RV want you to get fit this 2015 with your entire family! Getting fit with your family is not only fun, but also lets you spend quality time with the people you love. Families encourage each other and uplift people when they are down, and those are two things you will need to get fit this year.

    Here are some family friendly activities and places you can get fit around Louisiana this year!

    State Parks 

    Louisiana has 22 unique state parks that you and your family can take advantage of to get in shape. Located throughout the state, that state park system offer plenty of outdoor recreation as well as great camping! You will find activities such as hiking, biking, water sports and more that are sure to get your fun meter and heart rate excited.

    Some of our favorite state parks include:

    Lake Bisteneau- Lake Bisteneau features great water-side camping as well as many activities. Take advantage of the lake and go canoeing or kayaking. You can also get the family together and get some exercise while using one of the many trails or even the great disc golf course! Whatever you choose to do, you will be sure to have a great time amongst the picturesque setting of Lake Bisteneau.

    Lake D'Arbonne- Set on another fantastic and scenic lake, Lake D’Arbonne offers you and your family a great time and plenty of chances to get outside and take advantage of the great outdoors. With camping throughout the park, take your family on a great trip and come prepared for all of the activities the lake has to offer. Play a game of tennis, swim some laps in the swimming pool or explore the multi-use trails that cover the park.

    Bogue Chitto- Bogue Chitto is located in Franklington Louisiana and offers tons of activities for campers and visitors alike. Also located on the water, the park features a beach for boating, kayaking and swimming. One of the more unique features of the park is that it features an equestrian trail for horseback riding. There are also multi-use trails throughout the park and some areas are heavily wooded, providing beautiful scenery and wildlife.

    All parks are good parks, so pick one that best suits you and your family and get out there!

    Play Golf 

    It may not seem like an activity to get healthy, but golf is one of the more physically taxing sports if you walk all 18 holes. According to a study done by the New York Times, walking 18 holes of golf burns roughly more than 1,000 calories! Now if you are someone who doesn't like to work out, you can play a great game and burn a lot of calories while doing it! Walking and carrying your bag is great exercise as it is, but add to that swinging a club for 4 hours, and you have one great workout! Here are some courses that are walking friendly around the Boutte and Metairie areas.

    Near Metairie:

    City Park Golf Course: With four sets of tees, City Park offers a challenging but fun round for golfers of all skill levels. City Park's new practice center offers a full-service driving range with 74 range stalls and 2 grass hitting areas so you can improve your game year round!

    Near Boutte:

    Grand Ridge Golf Club: Located near Boutte in the swamplands, Grand Ridge Golf Club features an amazing course located on a spectacular piece of land. Fairways usually feature moss-covered trees, with 10 holes guarded by water to challenge all golfers. With reasonable prices and a great staff and facilities, get out and play at Grand Ridge Golf Club!
