Springtime has come up faster than we all expected, and before we know it we’ll be right in the thick of summertime. This is just one of the reasons why we work out as hard as we do: to feel confident when the sun shines and to have the energy to really make the most of life. And anyone who knows what summer’s all about knows that this is the time to really make the most of life! Yet if most of your training is taking place inside of a gym, then you might miss the best parts of summer. This year, supplement your indoor training by getting out into nature and soaking up the rays as you stay fit.


To The Mountains


We’re sure that you don’t have to be sold on the extensive health benefits of working out. But did you know that exercise is also pretty fantastic for your mental health, too? Just working out can make us feel better, but it’s even better if you do exercise and head outdoors. Combine the two by taking a trip to the mountains for a spot of biking or hiking. Find the best bike for you on and you’ll have a tool that’ll take you up and down Europe’s best mountains – and keep you hyper fit in the process. If you’re more of a walker, check out the best hikes in Europe for inspiration.


To The Water


In summertime, everyone should be spending as much time near water as possible. And luckily for you, you’ve probably already got the best beach body possible! OK, we’re not really recommending that you lie on the beach all day. Where’s the fun in that? Instead, get into the water and try your hand at kayaking. It’s a great way to stay fit and you’ll be able to bask in the sunshine at the same time, too.


Working Out


If you’re committed to sticking to your exercise regime, then you can always take your routine into the outdoors. You’ll be surprised just how easy it is to find equipment that’ll help you stay strong. A park bench is just example of something that you’ll find everywhere that can help you. Go for a jog around your local area and look for anything that’ll help you bulk up in the process – benches, walls, and even trees can help you pump iron in the sun!


Out of the Comfort Zone


Everyone deserves to take a break from the daily grind and have a relaxing holiday every now and again…but what if you quite like your “daily grind” of working out?! Well, you can still go on a holiday, but maybe think about making it an adventure holiday instead. You already know that you possess the mental toughness to push through when your brain is telling you to stop, why not put it to the test in exotic locations? Going on a multi-day trek will challenge you and keep you feet at the same time – and might just make you long for the familiarity of the gym, too!
