Even if you can only get outside for a portion of your exercise routine this Fall and Winter, it’s still a great idea to take your workouts outdoors for a number of health benefits.

Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few of the benefits of working out “al fresco.”

1.) The All-Natural Mood Booster

Working out outside is a natural antidepressant and will help boost your mood. Sunshine helps increase serotonin and releases endorphins — a one-two punch naturally designed to make you feel amazing.

2.) Operate Off of Self-Propulsion

Running outside will work different muscles in your legs and your body since you’re no longer running on the treadmill, which provides a healthy amount of mechanical assistance. Every inch you travel outdoors while running is earned by you.

3.) It’s Zero Cost

Working out outdoors means you no longer have to spend money on a gym membership since running and doing your exercises outside is absolutely free.

PRO TIPS: Invest in excellent outerwear as well as workout equipment — you and your workout routine are both worth it.
