Get involved in outdoor exercise

Throughout May our Get Involved series on Sky Sports News has been looking at ways to get fit - and this week we've called on the help of one of the best in the business.

In the first part of a two-part special, celebrity personal trainer Nicki Waterman explains that if you're not a fan of the gym then it could be time to start training outside.

Click on the video above as Nicki tells you why expensive gyms and high-tech equipment really aren't necessary as she takes us through a fun routine on Hampstead Heath in London.

Nicki explains:

WARMING UP - This is the first thing you need to do to get your heart pumping before exercise.

GO FOR CARDIO - Nicki has some advice for getting the blood pumping around your body with some simple exercises to try.

RESISTENCE TRAINING - We learn why press-ups and step ups are vital for burning calories and slowing down the ageing process.

GET APPY - Nicki explains that a range of free smartphone apps can help to keep you motivated.

Watch out for the second part of this special with Nicki on Saturday May 25 when she'll be showing us ways of getting fit around the home.
