Advantages of working out outside in beautiful natural surroundings

Outdoor workouts are known as a perfect match for good form and a positive mood. Exercising in nature gives you a lot of benefits whether you do it the park, in front of a building or house, or at the seaside. Sky, air, sun, wind, earth will give you an extra amount of energy to accomplish all your goals, not just in sports, but in life in general. Outdoor training has become very popular among all generations. Those who once try to exercise outside in most cases become big supporters of this form of getting fit.

The combination of nature, fresh air, sun and body exercises strengthens the mind and body, raises mood and confidence. Can you imagine doing it all surrounded by beautiful nature?

Find everything you need in nature

Outdoor fitness can be a structured exercise program that takes advantage of natural terrain to get you in shape, or it can be as simple as a brisk walk around the block. It depends on your abilities and needs.

When it comes to working out in nature a lot of people have doubt whether they’ll have the right conditions as there are in the gym. The good news is that gym equipment can also be sustainable, thanks to emerging biophilic principles that have taken over the industry, providing you with new, eco-friendly ways for working out, regardless of your surroundings.

Based on that, you can bring a few things from the house (ball, yoga mat or jump rope) go outside and work out as if you are in the gym, but with far more sustainable gym equipment. Natural conditions, as wind or sun will make you give yourself more, so you’ll get the same effect as you can get working out indoors.

Make outdoor exercises part of your lifestyle. Think about walking instead of driving. Go for a hike instead of a drive, or plan outdoor activities with your family. As you can see outdoor fitness comes in many forms. For example, light gardening or other yard work is considered moderate physical activity, and a 154-pound man can burn approximately 330 calories in an hour doing it, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Treat your soul right

When it comes to working out outside, we are talking about the experience for your body and soul at the same time, that’s why beautiful natural surroundings give you extra benefits. What is beautiful natural surrounding? It’s simple, whatever you find it to be. It can be a forest, mountain, countryside, river or seaside. Find the right place where you can fit, where you can set your soul free, at the end of the day find the option for which you can afford time and money.

Usually, we all have locations with beautiful nature in our neighborhood but we are not aware of that. Try to find one of these places and to treat yourself with spending some quality time there. For example, if you are on Stara Planina, you can spend your day hiking up. You can run on the beach or riverside, but what is great is that you’ll constantly change the environment, which is great both for your body and mental health.

Don’t use weather as an excuse

One of the arguments most people use to avoid working out outside is that weather can be bad, but that shouldn’t be an obstacle. First of all, nobody is going to tell you that you should work out in the middle of the storm, or when the temperature is extremely high or low. But you can work out through the whole year if you prepare yourself for that.

You will be surprised by what your body can do. Our adaptation ability is a lot greater that we sometimes think it is. What straightens your body more is challenging it to perform in different weather conditions.

Also, you can adapt to all those minute changes in your surroundings (such as slight inclines, bumps, or obstacles you may need to dodge), which means your body works harder than if you were running on a treadmill or using a stair machine at the gym.

Try to put in your monthly routine working out surrounded by beautiful nature, at the time you will probably increase it, when you feel the benefits that it gives you. Enjoy the benefits of our beautiful planet Earth, and most importantly, stay healthy.
