Green exercise refers to physical exercise undertaken in natural environments. Professor Jules Pretty coined the phrase ‘green exercise’ in 2005.
There are so many health benefits both mentally and physically that are gained from active engagement in nature yet we are spending less time outdoors then ever before. In fact:
- We spend less time outdoors then maximum security prisoners
- We are 70% deficient in Vitamin D
It’s time to disconnect to reconnect and get moving outdoors. Grab a friend, be active, explore the great outdoors and most importantly have FUN!.
You can even share your awesome adventures on Instagram with us at @greenexercise and you might just be chosen as the next GreenX Ambassador.
