Moving your fitness class outside while the weather is warm is a refreshing alternative to a traditional gym workout. It’s a great way to combine the benefits of exercise, while immersing yourself in nature – great for both the body and mind. Exercising in natural settings such as parks and farms provides a peaceful change of scenery from indoor gyms.

Fresh air and nature can help reduce stress and boost your mood. Whether it’s a jog through one of Hunterdon County’s many beautiful parks, a yoga session at sunrise, a hike through the woods or a run through your neighborhood, the benefits of outdoor exercise can’t be beat. We’ve rounded up a list of outdoor workout classes for you to try!
