This post has been inspired by the beautiful February weather recently, which got me thinking about how much better most of us feel when the sun is shining.
Think how much better you feel when you look out the window and see brightness and blue sky. Do you exercise outside or make a point of going out for a stroll, to breathe in the fresh air? How good does it make you feel?
Or do you sweat it out inside, bored to tears by your surroundings, able to tolerate your exercise only through distracting yourself with music, the tv etc...? Ever wondered if there's a more motivating solution?
It's not just a perception - research has proved that exercise really is better for you if it's done outside - Outdoor exercise 'healthier than gym'
As a self confessed outdoor exercise enthusiast, I thought it would be useful to outline the main benefits of the great outdoors and pass on some tips on some great ways to incorporate this into your lifestyle.
Hints and tips:
Have fun, tell me your favourite workout locations and type of exercises and pop up photo's of the best views you've come across when exercising outdoors.
