3. No Excuses
There is absolutely no excuse to miss a workout when you workout outside. There are no gym hours to have to work around so you can get your workout in at any time. Unless it is lightning for 24 hours straight, there is no reason you can’t go for a run in the rain. Hey I think it is fun to run around in the rain any way.
4. You Get a Tan
If you do your workout during the day you can maintain a nice a tan while working out. It’s like laying at the pool except burning calories while you do it! Remember to wear at least SPF 30 sunscreen every time! Plus Vitamin D is a good thing and our best source of it is from the sun!
5. It Makes You Happy
Having a good workout makes your feel good, but when you finish a killer workout outside it makes you feel even better! Research shows that only 5 minutes of “green” exercise can boost mental health.
6. Endless Options
There is nothing that you do inside a gym that you can’t find a way to do outside! You can turn any place into a gym, be creative! Experiment with body weight exercises like push ups, lunges, chin ups and jumping squats. And when you are at the pool don’t just lay there, when you jump in to cool off swim some laps while you are in there!
7. You Can Be Social
Invite a friend to join you for a bike ride or hike together so you can catch up but still get your work out in! I also suggests trying some sports that you may not have ever played before. I really got hooked on tennis this summer. It is a great workout and a fun competitive game to play with friends.
@baughmanm03 whooped me at tennis tonight! But I beat him at a chin up competition earlier today lol Maybe I'll post a video of that! 😃😃 Nothing wrong with a little friendly competition with your best friend! ✌💕 Wish I would have played tennis in high school… It's so fun! And a great workout! One of these days I'm going to beat him!👍👍
Remember: Even if you only take your dog for a 5 minute walk something is better than nothing! So get up and get moving!
I completely understand if you would not want to ditch the gym completely! But rather than spending all summer in the gym at least try to take a lot of your workouts outside!
