Green exercise is what we do at Gumsaba Outdoor Fitness classes. Our minds are inundated with information every day, so why go to a gym where all you see is televisions and machines?! Give your mind a break and your body a great sweat in the outdoors and experience all of these added benefits…

1) Uneven terrain allows for more variations in running stride and ankle mobility.

2) Wind is resistance, so love those windy days that keep us pushing!

3) You’ll be more committed. Studies show that people who exercise outdoors have greater commitment to their fitness program than those that workout indoors.

4) Exercise outdoors reduces the stress induced hormone cortisol which is known to cause weight problems.

5) “In collaboration with researchers from the University of Utah, Kansas University’s Ruth Ann Atchley is the lead author of a study revealing that being in the natural world can increase a person’s cognitive and creative ability by a staggering 50 percent.” >>>source
