    Four Major Benefits From Exercising OutDoors

    "To be sure, exercising outdoors during the winter months in many parts of the country is not easy. Snow, sleet and rain, combined with lower winter temperatures, make it difficult if not impossible to work out in a natural environment, but if you can, you should because it's much better for you in the long run if you do. 'While the allure of the gym - climate-controlled, convenient and predictable - is obvious, especially in winter, emerging science suggests there are benefits to exercising outdoors that can't be replicated on a treadmill, a recumbent bicycle or a track,' says The New York Times' Health Blog."

    I think for me, exercising outside is appealing because I feel like I get somewhere. It's freedom. Even when I did live in a big city, there was something so much better about running/walking/cycling outside than doing it in a house or gym. For me, being outside allows me the mental and physical space to clear my head. When I exercise indoors, I don't feel as relaxed afterwards. I think our bodies and minds need the space.

    Absolutely! It's not often practical for a serious workout (no equipment etc outside) but doing hard work outdoors is just an awesome feeling

    Nowadays it's difficult for some people to stay outside for a longer period of time cause of the massive spraying/chemtrailing.

    i pretty much agree with this lol specially for cardio exercice, when you need still good oxygen intake, and in cities most place to run are near avenue and roads, forget it, you'll inhale more crap than oxygen with that lol can always find parcs or some place though =)

    and treadmill are not all that bad, on the contrary, they are among the best thing to do serious cardio exercice, as you can control very easily the rythm and intensity of the exercices, with programs and stuff, treadmill are the best thing for pure cardio. and they are also safer, running outdor can come with also some kind of risk, depend on the terrain you run on, but if you run on bumpy/sloppy/too hard soil, it's not that great either, can sprain an ankle, or fall or other things

    I exercise in the outdoors for 90 minutes a day for about 5 times a week. I also lift weights almost everyday. My diet is mostly good. These aspects combined led to me into having a very healthy body, mind, and spirit. The weather here in my area is excellent throughout the year which means I can workout everyday outside.

    I like going to the gym and using the weight machines. And the elliptical machine is fun too.

    for me, if what you aim for is really fitness for increase of cardio performance, there is very little interest to run outside vs inside, and still many inconvenients.

    and i also don't agree it's easier to run on a treadmill, all the time i run outside when i'm in the country, it more seem easier, i'm not all hardcore into chrono and heart bpm measuring, but i'm pretty sure i do better timing at equal level of effort outside vs on the treadmill.

    weight machines also are not all that great, because they only train very speicfic muscle group, it can be ok if you make a good varied uses of different ones, but good exercices with free weight are better than machines, machines can be good for pure body building/esthetic purpose, because they can train very specific muscle group, but it's not that great for many other purposes



    "the volunteers reported enjoying the outside activity more and, on subsequent psychological tests, scored significantly higher on measures of vitality, enthusiasm, pleasure and self-esteem and lower on tension, depression and fatigue after they walked outside."

    for this i agree, but regarding the efficiency/safety of the training, there is no real interest of doing it outside

    Yeah, indoor gyms are not bad, but I prefer using the outdoors as my gym. I like absorbing a lot of sun. Absorbing sunlight is very good for your body. Sunlight cleanses the body.

    Here is a video of me doing some of my martial arts:

    Free weights are much better than machines. With just 6 dumb bells I can work out all muscle groups.

    I like being outside and I like walking and biking.

    It is the delicate pleasure of using all of my senses simultaneously and at the same time keeping my body souple.
    When I am walking in the woods; I am using my eyes to see the trees and the leaves on or off them, depending on the season.
    I see the skies, they might be any kind of light or colour, the little mosses and flowers, the pretty stones that I find sometimes.
    The smell of the woods is like a perfume, but of a different kind allways, depending on the weather and the season.
    I hear the sounds of the woods, I hear the leaves of the trees whispering to eachother or I hear them raging, when a storm is blowing.
    I hear the birds, the sound of their wings and the sound of their songs.
    I hear mysterious sounds that I do not know the nature of.
    I like to softly stroke the bushes or the barks of the trees and sometimes I whisper to them, because to me it seems that a very long time ago we used to know eachother.
    And when I pick a flower I like to first ask its permission.
    In the particular season I go and taste the berries, the herbs, the nuts and all the different kinds of mushrooms.

    When I go home all of my senses have been satisfied and I feel good and healthy.

    I am not the gym kind of person.

    well yeah walking in forest or nature can have some benefits, even if i generally tend to find that quickly boring as well lol

    but i still don't think there is clear advantage on anything to exercice outside, and only inconvenients like bumpy soils, not necessarily good soil either regarding shock absorbtion, and the soil is not necessarily super flat, not flat in the sense no increase of altitude, but also laterally, and i don't see much advantage to this, specially for cardio lol or need some kind of special trecking shoes, that cover ankles and have good shock absorbtion .

    i do a bit of gym, but nowday more minimum a little hour of running about once a week, and some exercice there and there, i'm not gym fanatic either, just keep myself minimum healthy

    but i like for exercice to be a minimum efficient, and now what gain it will provide when i do it, used to be a bit in judo competition when i was younger, and we had some sessions of hardcore training as well, but there is not really much need to go outside of you have treadmill

    but if you do this for relaxation, or i dunno to deal with depression, or other purpose than fitness, it's clear it always more enjoyable outside lol

    i have other kind of thing to be in communion with nature and dealing with depressions lol

    How can you get bored of nature when nature is infinite? That type of thinking is highly irrational. You can never get bored of the infinite nature of nature since there is always something more to find out about it within physicality.
