As kids and growing youths, we played outdoors with friends, walked to school, and played on sports teams. But what is better for you? Exercising in the great outdoors, or signing up for a gym and pounding away on running machines, as thousands will do as part of their weekly activities.

For most of us, a lack of exercise wasn’t a concern. It turns out that all that fresh air and exercise we enjoyed as kids, and would do well to keep up as adults, offers more in the way of health benefits than most of us ever knew.

Compared with exercising indoors, exercising in natural environments was associated with greater feelings of revitalization and positive engagement, decreases in tension, confusion, anger, depression, and increased energy. However, the results suggested that feelings of calmness may be decreased following outdoor exercise.
Anyways, you have the right and choice to choose between both, which is more comfortable and beneficial  for you. Both has disadvantages and advantages but one tops the other.

Gym Fitness Training
Most gyms offer the opportunity to do all the forms of exercise listed above and more. The benefits of many health clubs lie in the abundance of fitness classes and tailored training they offer, from yoga and pilates, to strength classes and myriad cardio dance combo sessions. Often you can do a few of these forms of exercise in a single visit to the gym. If you're easily bored with one type of cardio, you can switch from the treadmill to the elliptical machine to a recumbent bike within a single workout session. The bulk of most weightlifting equipment is found in the gym, as well, so those looking to build muscle might be more drawn to the indoor brand of exercise.

The gym is lacking the fresh air and varied background that many look to in outdoor workouts, but it does offer the ability to exercise when the environment is not cooperating. It provides a safe alternative to exercising in the dark, and if you can't tolerate cold or rain. The gym also carries a heavier, more regular price tag than outdoor fitness training, so you'll have to plan your budget accordingly.

Outdoor Fitness Training
The list of exercises you can do outside is a bit shorter than what you could accomplish at a typical fitness club, but can still prove immensely beneficial. Look to speed walking, running, jogging, swimming, surfing, bicycling and rock climbing. Many runners prefer the outdoors to a treadmill, as the constantly changing backdrop fights boredom and offers hillier courses. Most outdoor exercise forms are completely free, so not working out because you don't have the money for a gym membership is no longer a viable excuse. If you're new in town, a long running route gives you a chance to really explore and understand your surroundings. Rock climbing gives an intense upper body workout you can't find in most gyms, and allows you to visit a place you typically would not. Swimming and surfing also work your core and arms and immerse you in the height of summertime or warm weather activities.

As with any activity involving the great outdoors, you're limited by the seasons and extremities if you defer to outdoor fitness training. Few are willing to run in single-digit degree weather, so you may have to look to the gym during the winter months. The limited daylight in these months also prevents people from outdoor workouts, as it's often been dark for hours by the time many get home from work. Outdoor fitness activities like swimming and surfing are typically out of the question for year-round workouts, unless you're living in a year-round summer type of place, so you'll have to find other activities you can enjoy.

Conclusion/Advice: alternating between both on a weekly base isn't a bad idea for those from countries without winter. For those with winter and cold climates there are two things involved. You can use the gym during the cold weather season or you can have one day out during the winter for outdoor exercises. (more about Winter outdoor safety) and during summer you train outdoor. Lets learn to add balance to everything, Remember nothing is worth more than your health.
