The warm weather has arrived and with that – the desire to spend as much time outside as we can. Here at The Sculpt Society, we believe that being outdoors can bring that extra mood-lifting element to your workout while also having monumental benefits for both your mental and physical wellbeing.
According to a 2014 study, exercising outdoors leads to greater long-term happiness and can instantly boost your mood. Not only will you feel more awake, energized, and serene, but being surrounded by nature also brings a natural serotonin boost and when you add movement on top, it’s a guaranteed happiness-booster. Feel TSS’s positive energy by taking a TSS Outdoors class!
Self Esteem Boost
Exposure to nature while exercising also impacts the brain in positive ways. Exercising in the outdoors stimulates all five of our senses and adds feelings of confidence to our thoughts. Breathing in fresh air, feeling the ground under your feet, and taking in all the colors and sounds of nature are positive stimulants hitting your brain at the same time. You can’t help but feel your best self and the world around you!
TSS Outdoor Workout Essentials
When it comes to outdoor workouts, it is important to be prepared! A good pair of sneakers, proper sun protection, plenty of hydration, and post workout fuel are all key to making it a success. These are our recommendations for your next TSS Outdoors workout.
Megan loves her APL Streamline Sneakers – the perfect go-to for low impact sculpt. Another great option for dance cardio classes are the ASICS Gel Kayanos. They come in so many cute colors and have great foot and ankle support!
The perfect way to take your outfit up a notch; sunglasses are a must for outdoor workouts. Megan’s favorite’s are sleek, fun, and affordable on Amazon.
Sunscreen is one of the most important steps in any skincare routine, but especially when spending time outdoors. Megan wears SuperGoop GlowScreen every day to give her a nice and protected glow. She also loves the SuperGoop Play Sunscreen Spray to make sure she’s protecting her body as well.
For even more sun protection, we highly recommend a cute hat! Our TSS hat is 100% cotton, looks great in all your sweaty selfies, and will help keep you cool in the summer heat.
Post Workout Fuel
After moving your body it’s important to give it an opportunity to refuel with a post workout snack. Megan’s go-to is a protein-packed smoothie using Ritual’s Protein Powder. Use code SCULPT20 to get 20% off your first month!
