In the past, during our grandparents time they were unknown about this sort of  thing like hiking or trekking like this. They used to have a farmer life walking in the fields, climbing high hills and collecting  firewood from forest, to collect grasses for cattles, doing work all in the field and raising food crops and cattle in the houses. Which was a really busy and healthier lifestyle. And they don’t need any physical exercise and workout as they stay fit by regular basis works. 

But the practice has been drastically changed on human behaviour. People are reliable to modern technologies and facilities. People started working only staying at office and doing official work. Due to which things like hike, trek, gym, workout etc started more to be practiced in city areas. By which people can make themselves physically fit and healthier.
