Default Your Dream Outdoor Workout Space

This morning I watched yesterday's Biggest Loser Episode. (Wow. Yes, I do think this show is a bit controversial.)

So in this season of the Biggest Loser- all three trainers got to design their own outdoor workout space. It was interesting to see how all three had very different spaces.

If you got to design your own outdoor exercise space- what would it look like? What would be included? How often do you think you would visit?

Mmmm....nice thought!! Last year in February I was in Florida for a week and had the best run of my life! It was about 73 degrees outside with just enough sun to brighten my mood and warm my face and shoulders, a mild wind along the water and a view of the beach and quaint beach houses and winter flowers the whole way. I barely felt like I was working out. I wasn't hot and sweaty because of the wind and I wasn't bored because of the scenery. Too bad I can't take that back to Ohio!!

So, that would be my dream workout space - a boardwalk along the beach on a mild day.

Nice post! Thanks for the reminder. Maybe I can try to visualize that during my next run.

I didn't see the show, but all I know is that it would have an AMAZING pool space and a swingset (normal adult-sized swing, tire swing, monkey bars, parallel bars, slide - the whole shebang!).

I would definitely want a beautiful pergola, covered in grapevines with bamboo flooring underneath. Some neat laterns would be filled with armotherapy candles. This would be a great place for any body work...yoga, pilates.

I would also love a pool.

Come to think of it....I really do think that I could possibly make that outdoor yoga space really happen in my yard someday!

I would want a covered space that's at least 10 x 10 x 10 feet, with an even and flattish surface for awesome hooping. A pool would be amazing.
