Get More Out of Your Workouts Using Environmental Integration

One of the great benefits of exercising outside is the experience of connecting to the natural world around you. This process of connecting mentally and physically to nature is what I call Environmental Integration. Awareness of your environment keeps you safe on the trail; it also promotes a feeling of “oneness” with the natural world around you. Nature becomes both a guide and a companion.

How to Reach Your Goals Through Mental and Emotional Fitness

Athletes know that mental focus is as much a part of training and skill as physical prowess. Working out in the outdoors requires concentration and adaptiveness, as you constantly adjust to new conditions and changing terrain. Outdoor Fitness makes mental focus and acuity training a cornerstone of its program. BodyMind, mindfulness, concentration and emotional power techniques are integrated with the physical elements of the workouts to create a true whole health and fitness program.

For Better Performance - Mind Your Thoughts

You've heard it said before:  Thoughts are things. The impact of our mental and emotional selves on our physical selves cannot be overestimated.

The Attraction to Nature - Biophila Effect

The Biophilia Effect
The Outdoor Fitness program is based on the core belief that nature is perhaps the most powerful source for personal health and fitness.  When you workout in the fresh air, you not only enhance your physical-mental-emotional condition, you also deepen the connection you have with the environment.  It’s easy to overlook, since most of us spend so much time indoors, but you and I, like all human beings, have a deep connection to the natural world. Instinctively you know this to be true. This connection to nature is what is called  the biophilia effect.
