10 reasons why outdoor training is better than a gym workout

1. It lowers blood pressure and reduces stress

Studies have shown that physical activity outdoors lowers a person’s blood pressure and heart rate. As a result, exercise outdoors feels less strenuous than similar exercise indoors, which, in turn, pushes you closer to your maximum performance. Train outdoors, push yourself to the limit, and keep breaking your personal record!

2. Helps with insomnia

When you exercise outdoors, you get fresh air which helps to alleviate insomnia. Regular exercise and fresh air will help you to fall asleep and improve the quality of your sleep!

3. Sunshine

When training outdoors, you can also enjoy the benefits of sunshine. Fresh outdoor air and natural light invigorate and provide more energy for the mind and body. Sunshine provides the vitamin D that we need, you will get a suntan while training, and the sun will lift your spirits! Sunlight also enhances energy generation in the muscles and oxidation of the tissues.

When training outdoors, consider the possible harm caused by excessive sunlight, such as dehydration and sunburn. So don’t forget protective sunscreen and hydration while training outdoors!

4. Free of charge

Outdoor workouts are often completely free of charge because exercise parks, sports tracks, stairs, and other exercise locations outdoors are usually open to all and free of charge. Outdoor exercise is good for your wallet!

5. Saves time and nature

Think creatively about your surroundings and devise an intensive training session on a nearby jogging track, hill, or stairs, for example. Training locations are often closer than you think! Using nearby locations saves not only time but also natural resources since there is no need to take your car to your workout.
