These Workouts are No “Walk in the Park”…

Ahhh May. How I love thee. Long gone are the cold and dark days of winter! Thank goodness, right? It’s finally warm enough to take our workouts outside! Exercising outside has benefits such as:

  • Increased strength of connective tissues because of the constantly changing environment
  • More calories burned due to hills and wind resistance
  • Absorption of Vitamin D from the sun
  • Reduced boredom

Ready to take your workout outside? Lace up your sneakers, grab a friend, and give these workouts a try! *Warning* Don’t let the lack of gym equipment fool you – they’re no “walk in the park”! đŸ˜‰
