Lite Weight Fitness is the leader in the Outdoor Fitness Bootcamp. Lite Weight Fitness has been started with aim to encourage more people to get out of the gyms and get active in the great outdoors. Why?
Because outdoor exercise is proven to be better for you than working out in the gym.
You will burn more calories. It’s easy to get in a fitness rut when your body knows exactly what to expect from the treadmill, cross trainer, and stationary bike. The varied terrain of a venue encourages your body to challenge itself to move in varied, more complex ways. Also the varied weather conditions and the different temperatures (the hotter the weather, the harder your body has to work to cool down) will challenge the body as well.
it makes you a happier person:
Breathing fresh air opposed to the recycled kind in a gym can create a feeling of euphoria, which comes from the body’s release of feel-good endorphins. Exercising outside also creates greater feelings of revitalization, energy, and positive thinking than does working out indoors, according to a report published in Environmental Science and Technology.
get the dose of Vitamin D:
Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins for our overall health. We get most of our vitamin D from sunlight on our skin. The vitamin is made by our body under the skin in reaction to sunlight. Vitamin D helps regulate the immune system and the neuromuscular system. Vitamin D also plays major roles in the life cycle of human cells.
breathe in fresh air:
Exercises performed outdoors in fresh air offer increased aerobic benefits. More air in helps improve our breathing technique. Better technique increases stamina. More oxygen to the muscles reduces that lactic acid build-up in the muscles which leads to cramping.
boost your serotonin:
In numerous studies exercising outside has been shown to increase both serotonin production and release. Serotonin plays an important part in the regulation of learning, moods and sleep. A boost in your serotonin will help you feel calm, alert and capable.
no special kit needed:
You don’t need special kit to get trained under Lite Weight Fitness. An old t-shirt and shorts or tracksuit is ideal. Some exercises involve getting down on the ground so be prepared to get at least a little bit dirty – it’s part of the fun! Unfortunately we can’t guarantee the weather but we can guarantee that you’ll be sweating by the end of each session. We recommend having a warm top to put on after the session has finished.
