One of the most beautiful places to relax is on the beach, on a hot sunny day! The sound of the waves crashing against the rocks, the smell of sea salt in the air and the warmth of the sun heated sand on the soles of your feet are all very calming. OK, enough of that nonsense, the point is that the beach can be a great place to workout if the gym isn’t your kind of place!
Most beaches have masses of space therefore you can exercise in complete peace and quiet, without worrying if there are people watching you or getting in the way. There is something about the beach which makes it a nice environment to be in, which will certainly enhance your mood towards exercise if you find it hard to get motivated! You can also get a sun tan whilst training, what could be better? So whether you don’t like gyms, or you are going away on holiday this summer here is a ‘beach workout’ guide for you to stay in shape!
