Switch up your work out with your personal trainer by taking your session outdoors and give both your mental and physical health a refreshing boost. The human body isn’t designed to stagnate and stay indoors for long periods of time which is where exercising outdoors comes into play. With your dedicated PT pushing you to make the most out of your work out, nothing beats the high doses of feel-good endorphins you can only get from getting sweaty with nature. So we’ve compiled a list of great places to meet your personal trainer in Brisbane so you can get sweaty, get happy and get back into the great outdoors.
