GREAT WELSH OUTDOORSWelsh Landscape

If the outdoors is where you like to be, you just have to step outside of your front door to exercise.

Decorated with wild mountains, rolling hills, picture-perfect parks and fields and pristine beaches, Wales has plenty to offer those wanting to get active in the great Welsh outdoors and experience that feel-good factor that comes from the sun on your skin and fresh air on your face.

People of all ages and abilities have the opportunity to develop a life-long positive approach to health and fitness by simply stepping out on to their doorsteps and exploring the natural environment around them.

And there are a multitude of reasons to get outside to exercise...

It's free! Walking, running, cycling, swimming, climbing and even yoga and t'ai chi were all intended to be performed outside with the minimum of equipment and, as such, cost very little.

It's healthy Do your lunges, squats, jogging and cycling in the park rather than the gym and you’ll get a lungful of fresh air and a helping of vitamin D. Vitamin D helps your body transport oxygen efficiently which is important when exercising as it encourages your muscles to work better.
