5 Outdoor Workouts That Will Make You Ditch Your Gym

With summer in full effect, we’re looking to (safely!) soak up as much sun as possible, which leads to an important question: Why would you ever want to spend precious daylight hours holed up in a treadmill-laden, over-air-conditioned gym? Besides, when it comes to the variety of outdoor workouts offered — from trapezing in the clear skies to boot-camping at historical landmarks — the options are truly limitless. In short, no matter what kind of workout you’re seeking, there’s an awesome outdoor class for you.

We’ve rounded up five very different workouts from across the country that will immediately send you to the gym to put a three-month hold on your membership. And, because exercising is always a little easier when your gear fits the part, we’ve paired each class with a sweat-friendly outfit from SIX:02. Whether you’re an urban adventurer or a wannabe aerialist, prepare to breathe in the fresh air.
