Take It Outside: Fun Outdoor Workouts
Spring is in the air, and it’s the perfect time to move your workout into the great outdoors. 

There are many benefits to taking your workout outdoors. You may find yourself exercising for longer and not feeling your workout as much because you’re distracted by blooming flowers and chirping birds. You may burn more calories from the resistance that nature provides. Nature doesn’t require gym fees. And, you can get more vitamin D and rejuvenating fresh air by exercising in the elements.

Listen in as fitness experts, Grace DeSimone and Neal Pire, discuss how to take your workout outside.
