Benefits of Outdoor Exercise

Posted: Updated:

There's no doubt we've had a long winter, but as the temps begin to rise, it's important to get our bodies the exercise and fresh air they crave. And fitness experts say getting outside has plenty of benefits. From increased endurance to a change of scenery, the exercise possibilities outside are endless.  

"You can get way more creative outside, too. Use your surroundings-anything you can find around you. If you have stairs, start running up and down on the stairs," says personal trainer, Emily Vasey. "If you have benches, you can you can do push-ups, triceps dips, squats, all sorts of fun."

It's also recommended to wear plenty of layers when exercising outside this time of year.
