If you train strictly indoors, you’re missing more than just a chance to get a tan. Your habits could also be holding you back in all areas of your life.

Environmental Science & Technology recently published an analysis of 11 different clinical studies, all of which compared indoor training to outdoor training, using a total sample of 833 adults.

The results from each of these studies overwhelmingly favor outdoor training as a means of decreasing tension, confusion, anger, and depression, while increasing energy and boosting feelings of revitalization.

Get away from your old routine today, and take your training outdoors!
