Beautiful Spring weather has arrived at last – don’t miss this great opportunity to train outdoors.
Benefits of Working Out Outdoors
There are proven benefits to combining outdoor training with your exercise at the gym. Five advantages spring to mind immediately:
- Boost your immune system, lower blood pressure and defend against depression with natural light;
- Running outside is more effective than a running machine. The combination of wind resistance and the undulating outside terrain all add to the workout; you will burn more calories without realizing it;
- Fresh air will lift your mood; it releases dopamine, serotonin and endorphins. These hormones are essential for well-being, for improving health and creating positive energy.
- Training outside, you will more easily involve a broader range of muscle groups through an array of fitness activities;
- Psychologically and socially, outside get-togethers lift your spirits. Your exercise is fun; it will feel easier. “A change is as good as a rest” is the proverb. It applies to fitness too. You will feel rejuvenated.
Monaco provides wonderful opportunities to get a first-class workout outside.
