A simple hike through the woods can have amazing, positive results such as overall improved fitness. One of the major benefits of trekking is that it improves your physical and mental health immensely. Spending multiple hours on the trail, climbing around boulders, rock hopping and ascending hills gives your whole body a workout, improving your strength, agility and cardio fitness. This also makes your mind sharper and more focused — which in turn helps you in your business decisions when you are back in the office the following Monday.
