Physical and Mental Benefits of exercising outside

As a Personal Trainer I am passionate about helping others to get more active and using the ‘outdoor’ gym via ‘green’ exercise. There are many physical and mental benefits of exercising outside in the fresh air and natural environment during winter, which I have found both personally and whilst training with my clients.

Physical Benefits
Exercising outdoors is associated with the following physical benefits:
- Increased Energy and Get-up-and-Go
