Bored of the same tunes on the treadmill and just staring into a mirror while you complete your run? Does the lack of variety and excitement kill your motivation? You are not alone. So many people lose motivation and give up on their goals simply because they do not enjoy the gym.
Fitness and exercise should be fun, social and most of all rewarding. These are all aspects of outdoor fitness. You will not need your iPod when outdoors as you will be working in teams and using the environment around you. Every workout is different and adapts the scenario that outdoors brings whether it be the field we work in or the weather. It’s always different and that’s what makes it successful.
There are many scientific benefits to exercising outdoors too…
On 4 February 2011 the research journal “Environmental Science and Technology” published the findings from a team at the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry who reviewed a number of study trials that had looked at the benefits of outdoor exercise. The review found that most trials showed an improvement in mental well-being compared with indoor exercise and that exercising in natural environments was associated with greater feelings of revitalisation, increased energy and positive engagement, together with a decrease in tension, confusion, anger and depression. Participants of the studies also reported greater enjoyment and satisfaction with outdoor activities and stated that they were more likely to repeat the activity.
Xtreme Boot Camps is committed to helping its clients enjoy exercise and support the theory that outdoor exercise has a beneficial effect. Not only does being outdoors make you generally feel better, the variety of exercises that can be undertaken outdoors is far wider than those on offer in a usual gym environment. Variety in classes, coupled with being outdoors, is a better motivator to continuing with a programme.
