Take it outside – exercise

It’s summertime and the living is easy… Give your body a much-needed hop, skip and a lunge back into action this summer – there’s no better place to do so than in the good old outdoors. By allowing the sun’s nourishing Vitamin D and all the other natural elements to revitalise your body, you’ll be left feeling fit, fab and bikini ready.

“Sunlight, fresh air and the natural contours of the ground, will ensure a a full body workout and that all of your muscles groups are used. There’s no better workout than an outdoor routine that uses the natural obstacles of the environment to make exercising interesting and fun,” says Adventure Boot Camp Head Trainer, Wendy-Joy Timmes;

Three reasons to take your exercise routine outside:

  1. It’s good for your mind and body: With outdoor exercise comes increased energy, as well as a noticeable decrease in stress, anger, depression and tension. Vitamin D is also important for your bone health and metabolic function.
  2. You’re more likely to commit: Enjoying your exercise is key – the natural shot of pleasure you get from being outdoors means there’s more chance you’ll stick to your programme. Likewise with group classes, such as those offered by Adventure Boot Camp, you’re more likely to commit because you’re part of a team.
  3. The good mood is for free: Exposure to sunlight can help you sleep better at night, improve immune function and increase endorphin production. However, unprotected overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can increase your risk of skin cancer, so just remember to slap on some sunscreen before starting your workout.

Daily exercise can be a challenge – to make things easier the team at Adventure Boot Camp has handpicked a selection of beautiful outdoor venues across the country. Choose a class to suit your schedule – early morning or in the evening – for one, three or five days a week (4, 12 or 20 sessions per month).
