More peopleopt to exercise outdoors
The gym appears to be giving way to outdoor exercises. Research shows that one in three women are shunning working out at the gym.
In an effort to workout in fresh air, 56 per cent of health enthusiasts said they would definitely not be returning to the gym, femalefirst.co.uk reports. The increasing popularity of functional workouts, boot camps and small group personal training sessions has fuelled the growth in the number of outdoor exercise options.
Being cheaper is also one of the main reasons women have decided to ditch the gym. But they also admitted that they feel more comfortable exercising in a less confined space with people watching.
