How to Stay Fit During the Winter

Now that it is cooler weather people are more inclined to stay inside and hibernate rather than getting outside to run or walk because of the chilly change in temperature. Fortunately, there are tips to continue to exercise and stay healthy during the holidays and cold winter months.

1) Invest in proper cold weather gear: Staying warm outside is pertinent to staying healthy and comfortable when exercising outdoors. Clothing that prevents wind or water penetration is key to stay safe, dry and warm when the temperature drops. Be sure to do your research on new developments in cold weather clothing and don’t forget your head, hands and feet when shopping!

2) Stay well lit! With the change in time it is now much darker in the evening when people are likely to work out when they get home from work. You could switch your routine to a morning workout as it is now lighter in the early morning. Or if you want to continue to work out at night, invest in reflective clothing or lights to wear to stay visible to cars/traffic.

3) Stay inside to work out: Sometimes the weather is so bad or miserable that the only option is to work out indoors. Try investing in workout routines on demand on tape, gym equipment or a gym membership. This way you will always be protected from the elements!
