Adventure Out is a year-long outdoor fitness campaign to encourage residents to visit city parks for exercise. Exercising outdoors or “green exercise” has many additional benefits to indoor fitness activities, including stress management, improved self-esteem and mood, increased frequency of exercise, and improved sense of well-being.
The Adventure Out program features 12 classes in May (green exercise month) and 4 classes per month throughout the year, including Zumba, urban dance, yoga, circuit, historic selfie scavenger hunt, and more to help you turn over a new leaf and discover the benefits of green exercise.

Why: Because research shows outdoor or "green exercise" delivers powerful health benefits and the City of Charleston Recreation Department, Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated, MUSC Wellness Center, and MUSC Office of Health Promotion want to make it easier for you to use the outdoors to be healthier.
