Brits have made the most of the recent unexpected UK heatwaves by taking their favourite physical exercises outdoors, according to new research.
The survey of 1,331 adults carried out by garden and conservatory furniture e-tailer Alfresia.co.uk, revealed that 21% of Brits have re-organised their garden by creating more open space and stocking up on equipment that can be used outdoors, to allow them to bring their regular fitness regimes outside.
More than half (59%) would rather replace their indoor gym session with some outdoor training.
Football was the top form of exercise Brits enjoy doing in the garden (78%), while 62% are using the space to carry out strength-building activities, such as weights and mat work. Pilates or yoga are being embraced by 45%, while 27% are doing outdoor HIIT classes and 18% are using their outdoor space to carry out circuit training sessions.
