Description

Lyle Nelson is a world-class athlete, having competed in the biathlon in four Olympic Games, and has had a long, vibrant career as a community health expert. Lyle, a lifelong student of the outdoors, will share his passion for—supported by scientific evidence—the potential health benefits of spending time outside. 

He will explain how being outside can revitalize our minds and bodies, regardless of our age or fitness level, including how it may reduce feelings of stress and anxiety by decreasing fight or flight hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline, and increase the feel-good hormones, such as serotonin, dopamine and endorphins. 

Join to be inspired and motivated to step outside.
