10 benefits of training outside, instead of in the gym
1. Sleep better
People who are trained experience an improvement in the quality of sleep. For those who practice outside, however, the results are even better. It has been proven that even a brief practice of light fresh air exercises has a positive effect on good sleep. One morning gymnastics is refreshing and gives a great start to the day.
2. We have a great choice of exercises
By training out, we have tremendous freedom. We can do many activities that will be more enjoyable than a gym - cycling, running in the park, jumping rope, climbing and even walking.
3. We save money
When we train outdoors, we save money from the gym and various group exercises we visit. Walking on foot, we can also save on our cars.
4. It's more fun
There is no way to deny that one hour of cycling or running in the park goes much nicer than an hour in the gym. Outdoor recreation can help make new acquaintances and friendships.
5. Training passes imperceptibly
Training in nature goes very fast. Thanks to the frequent change of places we train, it will definitely not get us boring. A short walk on the eco-path is great for both our figure and our mood!
If we train outdoors when temperatures are lower, we will achieve more results with less effort. This happens thanks to the cold air, which makes it difficult to regulate body temperature. In a natural environment, the body uses a lot more muscles than in a closed room.
7. Stimulates the immune system
Exercises outside reinforce the immune system. This avoids staying in a closed place where it is full of multiple microbes, the metabolism improves and the release of toxic substances from the body is enhanced.
8. Improves heart health
Exercises outdoors activate the "hormones of euphoria" and thus support the cardiac and mental health of the person. Sport forces the heart to work more, enhancing the movement of the blood in the body.
9. We spend more time in nature
It is proven that spending time in nature contributes to our mental health. Through it we feel mentally unloaded. Sunlight strengthens our bones due to the vitamin D. A walk in nature makes us much happier!
10. We can deal with stress more easily
Sports is one of the best ways to deal with depression and stress. Regular outdoor exercise helps the body react adequately to stressful situations. The most suitable exercises against stress are yoga and meditation.
