Celebrate National Outdoors Month with Bootcamp SE16: Fitness for You and the Planet


June is National Outdoors Month, and what better way to celebrate than by taking our fitness routine outside and embracing the natural beauty around us? Not only is outdoor bootcamp a fantastic way to stay fit, but it also offers several environmental benefits that make it a win-win for you and the planet.

Traditional gyms rely heavily on electricity to power lighting, heating, air conditioning, and various machines. By moving your workouts outside, we cut down on the energy consumption significantly. Exercising in natural light and fresh air eliminates the need for artificial lighting, making our fitness routines more sustainable.

Gyms often contribute to plastic waste through disposable water bottles, plastic cups, and single-use products. At Bootcamp SE16, we encourage reusable water bottles and eco-friendly practices.

Our bootcamp sessions focus on using minimal equipment, often relying on body-weight exercises and natural surroundings. This reduces the demand for energy-intensive gym machines and the resources needed to manufacture and maintain them. Plus, exercising outdoors provides a unique and varied workout experience, engaging more muscles and enhancing overall fitness.

Indoor air quality can sometimes be compromised by poor ventilation and the use of cleaning chemicals. Exercising outdoors allows us to breathe in fresher air, which is better for our respiratory health. Moreover, trees and plants in outdoor spaces help absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, contributing to cleaner, healthier air for everyone.

By holding our bootcamp sessions in local parks like Russia Dock Woodland and Stave Hill, we actively promote the use and preservation of green spaces. These areas are crucial for biodiversity, providing habitats for various wildlife species and maintaining ecological balance. Our presence in these parks encourages their upkeep and highlights the importance of maintaining urban green areas.

This June, let’s make a conscious effort to appreciate and protect our environment while staying fit. By choosing outdoor bootcamp, we contribute to a healthier planet and a healthier community. So, grab your gear, lace up your trainers, and join us in celebrating National Outdoors Month with a renewed commitment to sustainable fitness.

Together, we can make a positive impact on our health and the environment.
