Wherever you exercise, it’s good for you – but you can get extra benefits if you train outdoors. These can include:
Remember to take the time to warm up before you exercise and cool down afterwards, and to dress for the weather conditions: layer up in the cold, wear waterproofs if it’s wet, and choose clothes that are breathable, to help you stay comfortable when you sweat.
Walking is one of the easiest ways to get active outdoors, and if you walk at a reasonable speed, it will give you a good workout. You're going at the right sort of pace if you can still talk, but can’t sing the words to a song.
Quote of the day
Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.
