The Benefits of Outdoor Exercise

Exercise in itself is great for your physical and mental health. It helps you to maintain a healthy weight and clears the mind. But, when you exercise outdoors, you get even more benefits. Outdoor exercise acts as a natural antidepressant because sunshine naturally increases serotonin, a hormone that impacts your mood. 

Outdoor exercise can also help to reduce stress and tension. In addition, the fresh air can help you to fall asleep and improve your sleep quality. The natural light from the sunshine provides the vitamin D your body needs to thrive. 

 When you exercise outdoors, there are a few things you need to consider. Here are our top tips for outdoor exercise: 


  • Sun protection - don’t forget to wear your SPF when you’re outside.  
  • Supportive shoes - good walking or running shoes protect your body from injury. 
  • Water - stay hydrated throughout your workout.
  • Shade - if the sun is high, try to work out in the shade.

Gym Mat for Outdoor Exercise

When you exercise outdoors, you need to factor in changing weather, rain, and drainage. Rubber fitness mats are ideal for fitness, but you can’t use all gym mats for outdoors.

The thick rubber gym mats are hefty enough to handle any hardcore weightlifting session.
