The Top 5 Reasons to Exercise Outdoors

December 13, 2017 | Aya Wellness

HikeAre you tired of the same old indoor workout routine? If you’re on assignment in a city where the weather permits, try to workout outside instead!

There are many benefits to trading in your gym membership for outdoor exercise instead.

Our Top 5 Reasons to Exercise Outdoors

  1. Outdoor exercise allows you to be physically active in a constantly changing environment.
  2. It’s a great way to save money. Say “goodbye” to gym membership fees! You might even be able to find free or donation-based group fitness classes offered in local parks. Check your local event listings.
  3. Get to know your neighbors by using your local park, running on nearby trails or by simply walking around your neighborhood!
  4. Outdoor exercise is a great way to add others to your fitness routine! Include family members, your pet or even other travelers in your workout. This is a great way to spend quality time with others during your time off work, while also doing something that’s good for your health.
  5. Outdoor exercise is associated with greater feelings of revitalization, increased energy and more positivity. It can also decrease tension, confusion, anger and depression.
