Who wants to be stuck indoors in a sweaty air
conditioned gym, when you could be outside in the fresh
air?! Some of us spent up to 95% of our days inside, YUK!!
Here are some of the benefits of training outside:
Much more challenging by working harder with
uneven surfaces and the natural elements, especially the
Burns more calories Up to 20% more in some
Better for the lungs fresh air and oxygen
delivery is much better for you outside than in sweaty,
bacteria infested air-conditioned gyms, even in a city!
Improves your core - uneven surfaces mean you have
to use your balancing and core skills more during the whole
workout, how good is that?!!
Makes you stronger A press up using your own
body weight (over a chest press in the gym) uses the chest
shoulders and triceps, BUT ALSO, your core, glutes and legs
- double whammy!
Is equipment and cost free meaning you can
take what you do within the workout and do it anywhere;
holiday, business trip
Helps to energise you using the energy of
the natural elements can help fuel you and motivate you,
we excel being outside!
Provides us with a vitamin D hit helping us
maintain strong and healthy bones by retaining calcium,
not to mention a healthy glow!
Gives us natural light - light is crucial to our
biorhythms our sense of wellbeing and every process in the
body especially good for SAD sufferers!
Increases physical awareness and vitality - when
body is in touch with the ground, it works better with the
earths magnetic field by tapping in to the health
giving properties of the earth, think about it!
Reduces diseases - we underestimate the influence
natural phenomena play on our bodily functions. Most of
us are indoors more and more and just look at disease rates.
Help yourselves to reach your potential!
Nurtures you - we underestimate the power of Mother
Nature, from light, to air, to gravitational pull. The effects
from Mother Nature are always going to be beneficial to
us. Feel the force!!!
Sets you free especially when living in a
concrete city, get out there!
Nourishes your soul being around plants, flowers,
animals and birds really is good for the soul and can help
put modern day stresses into perspective, its not worth
