Get Fit & Enjoy Summer Sunshine With Outdoor Fitness Tips From Mind Over Matter, Manhattan, New York

Everyone exercises in order to look and feel better, but being stuck inside a gym or personal training class when the weather outside is beautiful can cause you to lose focus. You may also find yourself too busy to get in any time outside or in the gym at all. However, there are numerous workouts you can do that will allow you to stay in shape while simultaneously enjoying the beautiful weather. New Yorkers typically lead busy lives, and Mind Over Matter Health & Fitness is dedicated to helping you stay in shape by providing personal training classes both at-home and in the office, allowing you create time without taking any away.

Going to the gym provides you with free weights and numerous machines, but exercising outside allows you to utilize trees, hills, benches, and more in order to add more excitement to your workout. Mind Over Matter holds outdoor boot camp classes that will leave you feeling great.

Some workouts you can try outdoors include:

  • Running: One of the most basic forms of exercise, running works out your entire body and helps you maintain a lean physique. When you want to take your workout to an outdoor location, running on the sidewalk, through the park, or along the beach provides some excellent scenery for your exercise routine. You can also try biking and swimming for additional benefits.
  • Pull-ups/Chin-ups: If you take your workout to the park, you can use tree branches and jungle gym equipment for resistance training. Pull-ups and chin-ups are excellent for increasing your upper body strength. If the branch or piece of playground equipment is high off the ground, doing a jump to reach it will provide you with lower body training.
  • Outdoor Sports: Playing any sport outdoors will allow you to burn calories, enjoy the weather, and mingle with friends or other individuals who simply want to have fun while staying in shape.

With the weather reaching warmer temperatures, outdoor workouts will only become more enjoyable. If you find yourself too busy to get in quality exercise time, Mind Over Matter Health & Fitness provides yoga, Pilates, and boot camp classes to help you keep up your fitness regimen at home or at work.
