I train my clients in every terrain possible. Depending on their fitness level and their goals I like to utilize buildings, beaches, hills, playgrounds, open fields, water and stairs (outdoors and indoors) into their training regimen. Different weather conditions can also provide opportunities for some variety. Actually some of the best workouts I have done with clients involved snow. Each of these terrains offers a unique approach to physical conditioning and challenges the client both mentally and physically.
I love working out outdoors with clients. I love using nature, the elements and natural terrain to change up the workouts and show clients that they can get a workout in anywhere.
I don’t know about unique, but I worked with a client in the ocean once. Talk about challenging stability when you have waves!
I’ve done bootcamps outdoors which is a great change of pace. For a few classes I took them to a local park and we used the playground equipment for all sorts of exercises. The swing became a great unstable place for them to place their feet for planks and knee tucks. Benches were great for step ups and tricep dips, and the sand volleyball area a great place for medicine ball drills. The outdoors was very effective and the terrain is different than a gym.
