With beautiful weather all year round, there are many more options to stay fit in sunny Jupiter Florida than an indoor gym.

“It’s a blessing to be able to exercise outside any time of the year,” says Jennifer Martin, an internationally recognized spiritual life coach and expert yoga teacher. “Here in Florida, I have the unique opportunity to teach outdoor classes, because we enjoy the benefits of great weather. That’s not necessarily the case elsewhere, so I highly recommend heading outside and enjoying the warm sun for a powerful workout.”

Jupiter’s beloved local landmark, the Jupiter Lighthouse, was authorized by Congress to be built in 1853, and construction of the tower was completed in May of 1860, with the official lighting commenced on July 10th, 1860. From 1860 to 1939, more than 70 different keepers maintained this 108-foot lighthouse, until the civilian lighthouse service merged with the United States Coast Guard in 1939.

On August 25th, 2018, Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse will be hosting a moonrise tour to view the full moon from the top of the lighthouse.
