FAQs - Outdoor Fitness Group and Personal Training
Q: Why this Outdoor Fitness program?
A: Outdoor Action Fitness. LLC is the original outdoor fitness program created by fitness expert Tina Vindum, aka "The Trainer's Trainer." Tina wrote the book on Outdoor Fitness training—literally! She has honed and perfected her techniques over the past 15 years to produce maximum results for our clients.
Q: Why take my workout outdoors?
A: It's the best way to rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit. Extensive research continues to show the many benefits of outdoor fitness, which include dramatic increases in fitness level, the ability to burn more calories, a measurable reduction in stress, increased immunity and increased feelings of well-being. Working out outdoors will leave you feeling alert, refreshed and uplifted.
Q: Why is Outdoor Fitness more effective than the gym?
A: Outdoors you are in an ever-changing environment. As Tina says, "Life is NOT a linear event!" The body is meant to move functionally, the way it was designed to move: moving up, down, forward, backward, diagonally, and laterally - working with different terrain, obstacles and climates. This improves your body-mind connection and sharpens your balance, agility, strength and coordination. Not only do you feel an immediate sense of accomplishment, you'll burn more fat and calories, too!
Q: What does a typical class include?
A: Each class is different, however, you can expect a warm-up, muscular strength and toning exercises, cardiovascular activities, balance exercises, flexibility, abdominal and core stability, and more!
