Why sign up for our outdoor training

The temperatures are rising, the sun is shining, the birds are singing and we are all in a better mood. To make the most of the good spring weather and get out of the routine a bit, it is best to go outside to train. Why? Well, here are some good reasons.

To begin with, the truth is that we usually spend a lot of time indoors, at work or in the gym. A little workout in the park helps you rest from the stress of everyday life and it serves to change the environment. Also, the fresh air can counteract fatigue and provides oxygen to your muscles. It is, therefore, the perfect way to do something for your physical and mental well-being.

We advise you above all to make a functional training, that is to say, that it includes exercises and complex movements that make the whole body work. In this way, your muscles learn to work together and your general range of motion improves. In addition, doing this type of training, the muscles of the abdomen will be working all the time and you will burn many more calories.

On the other hand, training outdoors can also help you improve the full attention. When we train in nature, we are more aware of the environment, we experience it with all our senses and focus our attention on ourselves and the exercises we are doing.

Reading tip: When you exercise outside in the sun, your body produces vitamin D, which helps maintain normal muscle function, among other things. If you want to discover more benefits of vitamin D, read our article Vitamin D: foods, benefits and deficit.
