Take Your Workout Outside | Chattanooga, TN Walk-In Clinic- AFC Urgent Care

The team at AFC Urgent Care Chattanooga is extremely excited that the weather is starting to warm up! We have done nothing but talk about how much we wanted the weather to warm up so that we could get outside again. Well, the time has come, and the sun is shining with the warm sun beating down. Now it’s time to take your workout outdoors again! Add Some Outdoor Exercise to Your Day Are you tired of waking up each morning more tired than the day before? Change up your routine—morning person or not—to where you start going outside to exercise first thing in the morning. The early morning sunlight can help you wake up and feel refreshed before the start of your work day! What about those who are tired of being sick all the time? Well, a study conducted at the University of Chiba and Tokyo’s Nippon Medical School found that there could be a strong link between those people who exercised outdoors and those who had a strong immune system. As a result, start thinking about how every time you take your workout outdoors, you are preventing sickness while improving your muscle strength. Plus, the additional vitamin D you receive while exercising outside can help to reduce your risk of certain cancers, such as prostate and colorectal cancer, as stated by the American Journal of Public Health. Therefore, not only are you getting a great workout in, but you are also gaining a healthier outlook on life by getting some outdoor exercise in on a daily basis. The time seems to go by faster, too, and who wouldn’t mind that happening? Because of the time factor, you are more likely to get a better workout in since you aren’t as focused on the time as you are in a gym or indoor fitness setting. When outside, you are not just enjoying your run, you are also enjoying the sun, the breeze, the fresh air, etc. Therefore, you have a tendency to work out for longer, which can only help you when it comes to your health and weight-loss goals. Are you ready to take your workout outdoors, but aren’t sure where to begin? Or did your latest hike leave you with a bug bite that won’t go away? Visit AFC Urgent Care Chattanooga so we can help you get back on the fitness track!
