The first months of the year can often be the coldest, so it’s no surprise that many people find it easier to skip winter workouts than to brave the frigid temperatures. But with a few small lifestyle changes, you can commit to your winter workout routine! Learn more below.
Stay Consistent. Establishing a schedule can help you stick to your workout routine, but make sure you see exercise as more than a weather-dependent addition to your day. In the cold winter months, consider going the extra mile to exercise consistently by making yourself accountable to a workout buddy, group or class.
Embrace Cold Weather Activities. Whether you enjoy cross country skiing, snow shoeing, ice skating or just going for a jog —exercising outdoors is a great opportunity to experience the crisp winter weather while freeing you from being cooped up inside.
Dress for Success. Wearing the right gear to protect you from the cold should make it easier and more convenient to get outside or to the gym regularly. Plus, investing in new workout clothes or shoes will motivate you to make your purchase worthwhile by exercising more.
Get Active at Home. If winter weather conditions prevent you from getting to the gym or performing your normal workout routine, take the opportunity to try fun at-home workouts instead. Go ahead and try that yoga, aerobics, or dance workout you haven’t made time for — all from your living room!
Make a spring fitness goal. Having a short-term goal, like a half-marathon, is one of the most effective ways to keep you on track with your training. Sometimes an approaching deadline is the perfect motivation to get you started.
