It’s hard to justify working out in a dark gym when the sun is shining outside. Take your workout outdoors to challenge your body in new ways and enjoy the weather while you do it! Remember to stay hydrated as the temperatures rise and protect yourself from the sun with sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses.
