Take your fitness routine outdoors this season to reap all the benefits
Ondela Mlandu

Exercising outdoors is not only convenient, it’s less expensive than a gym membership and it has a range of bonus health benefits, including building a stronger immune system, boosting your mood (beyond the usual endorphins), improving your heart health and lowering blood pressure. To inspire you to get outside, personal trainer Phia-Lee Rabe designed this 30-minute mobility workout. It’s a major perk? You need nothing more than an empty patch of grass. Get ready to build a stronger, fitter you.

Starting with the first move, do each exercise for 45 seconds to one minute, rest for 30 seconds, then continue onto the next move. That’s one round. Do five rounds for a total of 30 minutes three times a week. If you have any injuries, it’s best to consult with your doctor or physiotherapist before doing this exercise routine.
