Benefits of Exercising Outdoors

Exercising outdoors provides an opportunity to be physically active in a constantly changing environment. Using your local park, running on a nearby trail or simply walking around your neighborhood are all great ways to meet your neighbors and your fitness goals! While exercise can enhance your physical health, being connected with your community and having a number of positive relationships can help improve your mental health as well.

Some other benefits include:
  • Mind-body wellness
  • Improved self-image and self confidence
  • Low-cost and easily accessible outdoor fitness classes
  • You get to soak up the sun!
