Summer is already on the threshold, which means that it is time to start practicing healthy outdoor sports (of course, not forgetting the precautions and social distance during quarantine).
In today’s article we will list suitable places in the open air where you can exercise and enjoy the environment.
Why is it useful to exercise on the street?
When you exercise outside, your body gets oxygenated and your nervous and respiratory systems start to work better. Hormones such as serotonin and endorphin also increase in the body. They help fight stress and depression.
Not training has a positive effect on changing the environment. The walls of the gym are changed to green-scented landscapes and warm summer weather.
Variants of places where you can exercise on the street:
A park or a square
Not only in the capital, but also in other cities of the country there are many parks and squares. Such places are fenced with lawns, trees and bushes. They also include paths that can be used for jogging. Lawns are a great option for gymnastics and yoga.
Sports activities in the forest are a great option for those who follow their fitness and are inspired by the beauty of forest nature. You can do almost any kind of sports (except swimming) – running, shaping, yoga, gymnastics, strength exercises with the appropriate attributes. It should be noted that jogging along forest paths actively involves leg muscles and increases endurance.
The coast is another great choice for sporting activities. In addition, you can get a beautiful and even tan during the exercises. You can exercise in shorts and a T-shirt, as well as in swimming trunks. The main thing is that the clothes are breathable and do not stiffen the movement.
On the beach you can swim, rowing, surfing, volleyball, yoga, running, as well as shaping. Training options are more than diverse.
Not all communities have beaches. But if there’s an embankment, you can practice on it. Smooth lanes are suitable for jogging and cycling. Morning and evening on the quays, as a rule, there are many fans of a healthy lifestyle.
Specially equipped roofs are suitable for sports. They have a fence around the perimeter and are safe for practicing. In addition, the rooftops often offer a beautiful view of the city.
The stadium is one of the best options for running and cycling. You can also play football, basketball and volleyball there. Often the stadiums are supplemented with bars and strength training machines.
In many communities, sports grounds began to appear. These are fenced and landscaped areas for sports activities. They can combine a treadmill, inside which there are simulators and bars. This is a good alternative to a gym, as classes will be outdoors.
There’s still at least three months of warm weather ahead. So, it’s time to find a suitable option for outdoor summer sports. In order not to get bored, it is possible to change the situation, because there are sure to be at least a few of the above-mentioned places in each settlement.
