#FirstDayofFall: Why It’s Time to Get Outside

Cue the decorative gourds: it’s the first day of Fall! At Aaptiv, we’re celebrating by fitting in a fall workout as often as we can. Fall is the perfect time to move your workouts outside. There are clear documented benefits to exercising outdoors: not only do you burn more calories because of variations in terrain and environment, but simple fresh air is also linked to lower levels of stress hormones and increased energy and happiness. Some of our favorite fall workout options include long weekend bike rides and switching up our commutes by choosing to walk to work.
