The Benefits of Outdoor Exercise


A breath of fresh air isn’t just great for our health, it can also give our self-esteem a boost!

Scientists have found people who spend more time outside, feel better about their body image and have higher self-esteem.

There are many reasons why getting our sweat on in the great outdoors makes us feel good. Beautiful views, the sun beating down on our faces and getting away from the hustle and bustle of a packed gym floor, to name a few.

Outdoor exercise has already been proven to…

  • Improve stress
  • Increase Vitamin D
  • Provide more energy
  • Motivate those working towards a goal
  • … and fight against a number of health issues

Outdoor gyms are becoming increasingly popular as many people are choosing to get their workouts done in the fresh air.

Take a look at our outdoor bootcamp at Village Gym Portsmouth. A fitness playground designed for a multitude of outdoor activities, including our functional training rig.
