Spring is here and so is outdoor boxing and fitness!
The Kingsway Boxing Club had been delivering virtual programs to the comfort of your homes for the past several months. It was a challenging time but we all stuck together and made the best of it. Now, as Ontario moves into the 3-step reopening process, we are happy to announce that our OUTDOOR BOXING CLASSES ARE BACK!!!
Feeling unsure about leaving your home and getting back out there? This week, we will share with you our top four reasons to train outside.
1 Boost Mental And Physical Health
Research highlights that an average of 30 minutes spent outdoors in nature results in an increased physical activity, lower prevalence of high blood pressure and depression.
Fresh air, grass, trees and the colours of nature have a positive impact on mental health and physical well-being. So get out there and RUN!
2 Workout Longer And Harder
Let’s be honest, working indoors can be SO boring! When you are outside, you see people, scenery and so much more, motivating you to work out longer!
A research study done with older adults found that people are more likely to do physical activities outdoors rather than indoors because the environment is more stimulating and leads to more enjoyment.
3 Burn More Calories
When you are working outdoors, there is natural resistance, such as wind while cycling or running, causing you to work harder and burn more calories!
One study found that in a high-intensity workout, you’d have to run 15 percent faster on a treadmill to burn the same calories as running outdoors.
4 Sleep Better
Turns out that exposure to natural light actually enhances your sleep! One study compared the effects of outdoor exercise among 360 women, and found that being out lead to significant sleep improvement.
