Outdoor Training Venues
The average Brit spends 22 hours indoors, equating to around 90% of their day. Work commitments were also a limiting factor for a fifth of Brits (22%). The average person in Britain spends just 8 per cent of their time outside on a weekday, meaning less than two hours a day out of doors. Most of this time is spent walking to the shops or the car.
Although our modern lifestyles undoubtedly have enormous benefits, we should also be aware that a large amount of time we spend indoors may negatively affect our health and well-being. So why not breathe in the fresh air and take your next training session or event outdoors?

The benefits of outdoor training
Several scientific studies show significant health and well-being benefits to exposing ourselves to natural views, sounds and smells. There are proven benefits to learning outside, so what are you waiting for? It's time to embrace the great outdoors. Studies show that being outdoors in nature can improve attention, memory, creativity and concentration.
Craving another cup of coffee? Maybe you should skip the caffeine and sit outside instead. One study suggests that spending 20 minutes in the open air gives your brain an energy boost comparable to one cup of coffee. Better for learning and taking on the information.
Being outdoors gives you a fuller sense of freedom and can improve your well-being - physical, mental and emotional.
Spending time outdoors is also a great way to boost your vitamin D levels, which protects against a range of diseases such as osteoporosis, depression, heart attacks and stroke).
And it's more fun for educators being outside - a renewed enthusiasm. Essentially, being outside makes us happy.
