Benefits Of Training Outdoors

Many of us spend far too much time inside. Being out in the fresh is so important.

 Exercising outdoors offers many benefits, including:

  1. Increased exposure to natural sunlight, which helps regulate the body's internal clock and can improve mood and sleep.
  2. Fresh air and natural surroundings can help reduce stress and boost mental health.
  3. Outdoor activities like bootcamp, hiking, running or biking can provide a more varied and challenging workout than indoor exercise equipment.
  4. Exercising outdoors can boost vitamin D levels, which is essential for healthy bones, teeth, and immune function.
  5. Outdoor exercise can be more enjoyable and engaging than working out indoors, which can increase motivation and adherence to a fitness routine.

These are just a few things that you can benefit from! 

Focusing on no.2 mental health - Why does this help so much

Outdoor exercise has been shown to have a positive effect on mental health, including reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression, improving mood, and increasing self-esteem. Regular exercise can also help to reduce stress and improve cognitive function. The exact mechanisms behind these benefits are not fully understood, but may involve the release of endorphins, changes in brain chemistry, and improvements in sleep quality. It is recommended and suggested that adults engage in at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week for overall health benefits, including mental health. 

Remember when was the last time you regretted that work out? Only the one you didn't do!

I joined Paul's UK outdoor fitness class approximately 6 years ago. I had previously struggled with a yoyo weight on the scales and poor mental health. Fast forward to now I am in the best physical and mental shape I have ever been in with a huge thanks to Paul and the team. They take the time to learn your strengths and work on your weaknesses. They are all willing to go the extra mile to reach out to help and motivate. I can thoroughly recommend every instructor and session as they are well thought out and fly by
