Product description

Bored of aerobics? Had your fill of running hamster-style on the treadmill? More people than ever are turning their backs on indoor exercise and discovering the immense physical and mental benefits of the great outdoors. Wild gym workouts can be adrenaline-boosting or serenely calming. They can involve mud, sweat and an element of fear or they can offer space for quiet reflection under a big, blue sky. Outdoor exercise burns more calories, tones muscles at a faster rate and has been proven to boost your mood and improve your health. Whatever you look for in a workout, you will find it in this indispensable guide to activities that range from beach running and buggy workouts to recumbent cycling and rock climbing. Want to get active? Get outside!
