You obviously want to get in perfect shape before the year ends, right? But we get it, you are not exactly "motivated" to workout because you're bored... or just not "into it" anymore. What do you do? Well, there is a way out: take your fitness outdoors for an exciting routine.

MYC Writer Polina Tikhonova explains why outdoor fitness is becoming a trend. Read on:

Why is it so trendy today?

Open air (outdoor, outside) workouts have been trendy for a while now. Why are they so popular? There are a few reasons: it’s comfortable, available to everyone, brings joy and fun! 

And not just that…

You don’t need to spend your money on a gym membership.

You don’t have to stick to your gym’s schedule (especially when you are late for your fitness training due to the inconvenient location of the gym). 

Workouts turn from a burdensome ‘have to’ (which often occurs if you are going to gym for a while) to a fun experience. Dynamic training in open air lets your brain relax, boosts your mood and brings you a great deal of energy.

You can choose the time and location of your training yourself. And each training you can chose new locations, which will aid you in achieving impressive results in fitness. For example, it’s more difficult to run through twisty forest trails than running on the flat surface of a treadmill. 

And you lose weight more rapidly! Recently, scientists discovered that when you are working out outside, you consume 20-30% oxygen more. As a result, it nourishes your blood and cells and boosts your metabolism. Furthermore, your paleness disappears and you get a fresh pink glow on your face.

Here are 5 suggestions for outdoors fitness:

Jogging – burns 500-600 calories per hour. 

Brisk walking – burns 250-400 calories per hour.

Basketball – burns 470 calories per hour of an intensive training.

Volleyball – burns 225 calories per hour of training at a medium pace.

Skipping – burns 1000 calories per hour.

Riding a bicycle – burns 370 calories per 40 minutes of biking at a medium pace.
