I never realized there were so many benefits of outdoor exercise.

After all, how much better could outdoor fitness be than indoor?

As it turns out, there is a difference and I've been heading outside more often than ever.

The next time you want to work out, consider these benefits of outdoor exercise and you might just choose the great outdoors over the gym.

1. Burn More Calories

No matter how much indoor equipment tries to replicate outdoor activities, it's still not as effective as the real thing.

One of the major benefits of outdoor exercise is it burns more calories faster.

For instance, outdoor running is far more strenuous than a treadmill since the stride is different, you have varying terrain and natural resistance such as wind.

If you really need to burn calories, try an outdoor run instead.
