5 Reasons to Exercise Outdoors

  1. 1. 5 Reasons to Exercise Outdoors W W W . M O M L E S S M O M . C O M
  2. 2. We all know regular exercise has myriad benefits. From improved mood to decreased belly fat, working out is good for everyone. Getting your exercise outdoors has some specific pros above and beyond just getting a quick jog in on the treadmill.
  3. 3. It's Fun The sun shining down, the smell of fresh, green grass, and a light breeze across your skin — who wouldn’t choose that over staying indoors? Taking time for fitness in the great outdoors makes working out more fun. Studies show it can even make you more likely to workout again.
  4. 4. Bigger Burn When you workout outdoors, you’ll probably burn even more calories than you would working out in the gym. Studies of runners (treadmill vs. outdoor running), cyclists (stationary bike indoors vs. outdoor riding), and walkers have shown that people exert more energy in the outdoor activity.
  5. 5. Sleep Better If you workout in the morning sunshine, you will help set your circadian clock, which will both help you fall asleep and wake up more easily.
  6. 6. Save Money The average gym membership costs about $55 per month. That’s nearly $700 a year. Not a small price to pay for fitness. If you spend just half the year working out in nature, you’ll save yourself enough for a designer bikini to show off that figure you’ve been working so hard on or a nice little bonus to your retirement fund.
  7. 7. Get your Vitamin D Spending enough time outdoors in sunlight helps you get your Vitamin D in. A great health benefit!
  8. 8. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that adults aged 16 to 64 should get two hours and 30 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise per week, including two days of muscle strengthening moves. It can be done in 10-minute increments. A brisk walk to the corner store could count as one of your outdoor mini-workouts. Just three, 10-minute walks, five days a week will meet the CDC recommendations and bring you all these incredible benefits.
