Exercising Outdoors is Awesome

Summer is in full swing, and if you’re one of most people who might not be as “summer bod ready” as you would have hoped, now is the time to start working out for your health and also for your confidence. Gyms aren’t for everyone, and it’s understandable why. Gyms can be hot and humid, intimidating, and boring. Yet, still, there is a place for you to work out, and you’ve known about it all along. It’s called the outdoors, and you can find some suggestions on outdoors workouts here.

Doing workouts outside is a wonderful feeling, especially if you’re not used to working out regularly and don’t want to be stressed out by everything going on at the gym. The outdoors are liberating, and almost from the beginning of every workout I do outside, I feel a little more free and happy with myself. That’s something I just don’t get at a gym sweating away on a bike in a crowded room full of other sweaty people.

When I’ve had a long day at work, am frustrated and need to think, or just want some time to myself, I’ll walk around outside for the length of an album playing on my iPhone. At about 45 minutes, that counts as a workout right there. Whether it’s swimming, gardening, cycling, doing it outside might just be the change your workout needed.
