Regardless of your fitness level, the downtime we’ve experienced during 2020 makes it the perfect opportunity to focus on your workouts and try new ones. And, as gyms across the countries have closed their doors, it’s time to make the outdoors your new workout center.
Need some inspiration? Check out our guide of outdoor workouts below!
For those that want to work out and stay cool, swimming is the perfect outdoor exercise for you. It's a full-body workout that places minimal strain on your joints, making it a great option for elderly people or individuals recovering from injuries.
If you don't have a pool in your backyard or apartment complex, try finding a lake or river where you can take a dip.
Bring a Geo 1 Gallon BPA-Free Bottle With Stainless Steel Cap, which holds enough water to keep you hydrated all day, so you can work out and relax.
Your strength training can be met on body weight alone. Calisthenics, also known as bodyweight exercises, relies on zero to minimal equipment. Sit-ups, push-ups, planks, squats, burpees, and pull-ups are all popular examples of bodyweight workouts. Be sure to mix in cardio by running in place or have a jumping rope to use in between reps to optimize your workout.
This is a great option for individuals with families. You can be creative by using a park bench or monkey bars to monitor your kid’s outdoor activities while still achieving your fitness goals. Free workouts are offered by fitness apps on both Android and IOS if you're looking for routines for your bodyweight outdoor workout routine.
Bring the Geo Double Wall Vacuum Insulated Growler Bottle with you. It maintains the temperature of your water for up to 24 hours, allowing you to sit in the sun without having to worry about drinking post-workout warm water.
Cardio workouts are at the core of every routine. Building endurance for a longer workout, lowering blood pressure, burning calories, lowering blood sugar, and keeping a steady insulin level are a few of the many benefits that can be provided by running. Lace up your favorite sneakers and seek out a park, scenic trail, neighborhood, or even try trekking to your favorite restaurant. The cardiovascular benefits of running outweigh most outdoor workouts you can do.
You can get the most from this workout by equipping yourself with a fitness tracker. Monitoring your heart rate is integral in checking when you are overexerting yourself.
Don't forget a Geo Rubber Coated Stainless Steel Sports Bottle! The powder finish prevents condensation, allowing you to run and firmly grip your bottle simultaneously.
A beautiful landscape makes working out more enjoyable. Depending on the surface elevation, the average amount of calories burned from walking long distances can range from 150 - 500 calories per hour. Even those most dedicated to fitness need to deviate from their normal routine and this outdoor workout allows you to meet your daily burn while enjoying the sights. There are a number of workout apps that direct you to the trails closest to you.
Take a Geo Double Wall Vacuum Insulated Flask Standard Mouth and Powder Finish with you. This bottle is durable, withstanding any drop, and will keep your water cold for up to 24 hours.
While a more niche choice, rock climbing requires both physical and mental strength. Since relying solely on your upper body is a quick way to burn out, it is as much about flexibility and form as it is about strength. Climbers have a rating system based on the difficulty of a specific route and once you decide to abide by these climber’s rules you will feel the full effects of this outdoor exercise.
Some climbing gyms are open, but to get the full experience outdoor workouts are preferred.
The Geo Powder SS Widemouth Sports Bottle is perfect for your rock climbing excursions. Between the strap and non-slip finish, it's easy to carry and travel with.
Your favorite fitness studio may be closed, but there are other ways to keep your Prana (vital energy) levels elevated. Yoga assists in alleviating any joint pain you may experience and creates improvements to your posture. Lay your yoga mat down in your favorite park and stream a virtual class. These live classes are offered by most gyms, studios, and fitness apps for those only able to do an outdoor workout from their backyard. If you are attending a park yoga class in a park, be sure to keep six feet between you and the next participant and bring a mask— being considerate may expedite the awakening of your Sahasrara (Crown Chakra).
Amp up your positive vibes with a Geo Glass Sports Bottle With Plastic Cap and Protective Sleeve. This bottle holds enough water to keep you hydrated throughout multiple yoga sessions and is soft to the touch.
With people craving the outdoors, cycling has soared in 2020. Cycling is a workout that allows you to do cardio while also taking in the sights, waving to your neighbors, and getting some much-needed fresh air.
If you don't own a bicycle, you can rent one or use a bike share app to take a ride around the city.
To hydrate quickly and focus on steering, use the 30 Oz BPA Cobra Body Sports Bottle.
Enjoy your workout!
