The Benefits of Exercising Outdoors

The Benefits of Exercising Outdoors | Exercise for health | Scoop.it

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.

But the take-away seems to be that moving their routines outside could help reluctant or inconsistent exercisers. “If outdoor activity encourages more activity, then it is a good thing,” After all, “despite the fitness industry boom,”  “we are not seeing changes in national physical activity levels, so gyms are not the answer.”

Seth Bilazarian, MD's curator insight, February 23, 2013 9:30 AM
Studies suggest that exercising outdoors may offer advantages to working out at a gym because:

Outdoor exercise tends to be more strenuous than indoor exercise.

 

People tend to enjoy outdoor exercise more.

 

People tend to exercise harder when exercising outdoors.
