If you are tired of working out indoors, consider doing some exercises in your garden.

Exercising outdoors can offer you a marvellous change of atmosphere. The fresh air and natural environment can help make you feel more calm and relaxed whilst having a good workout. There are various kinds of exercises that you can do whilst outdoors. For example, press-ups, skipping, jumping on a trampoline, playing a sport or even swimming if you have a swimming pool near the garden area. You could alternatively choose to do some gardening!

Remember to dress appropriately, according to the activity that you will be engaging in. In addition, protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays by using sunscreen and a sun hat, and don’t forget to stay hydrated.

Experiencing discomfort?

Always stop if you experience any discomfort or pain. Remember that the more fit you are, the more comfortable you will feel when exercising.

Consult your doctor

Always remember to consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise regime or making intense changes to your current one – especially if you suffer from any medical conditions and for some reason are required not to place your body or yourself under any form of stress or strain.
