Your Guide To Winter Fitness

Just because it's no longer beach season doesn't mean that we don't want to maintain our fitness regimens during the winter. When you neglect exercise during the winter, you're just setting yourself up to have to work that much harder in the spring. However, it's easy to feel discouraged when it comes to fitness when the weather outside is harsh and cold.

Luckily, you can stay fit during the wintertime, no matter how gruesome the weather may seem. Here's a simple guide to staying fit during the winter months.

Try New Indoor Classes

If you've never tried fitness classes before, winter is a perfect time to do it. The weather outside might be frightful, but the temperature inside a fitness studio is plenty warm. If you really want to stay toasty, try a hot yoga class. In a hot yoga class, you do strength- and muscle-building yoga moves inside a studio that is heated to roughly 100 degrees. It's challenging, but you'll be shocked at how amazing you feel afterwards.

Dress Appropriately When Working Out Outdoors

The biggest mistake you can make when working out outdoors during the winter is to neglect to dress appropriately because you assume that the exercise will raise your body temperature sufficiently. You can always take a jacket off and tie it around your waist, but you can't grab a jacket once you're five miles from your house and realize that you aren't dressed appropriately for the elements. If you really want to play it safe, try self-heating clothes, such as heated clothing for hunting. Remember, being caught in cold weather without the right clothing and layers can pose a serious health hazard. It's better to be safe than sorry.

Know When Not To Go For That Run

We all see people who seem to show up for their daily jog no matter how cold it is outside. While it might seem admirable to hit the trail even when the weatherman has said that temperatures have dropped to an extremely low level, it can actually be really dangerous. We all want to feel like we're trying our best when it comes to our fitness routines, but there's nothing wrong with skipping a day or working out indoors when you suspect that temperatures might be dangerously cold.

Don't Beat Yourself Up Over Holiday Eating

Wintertime is the season when none of us are eating more healthfully. The holidays are when we all tend to let loose and eat a little more than we perhaps should. Don't beat yourself up at the gym because you feel like you overindulged; instead, just work out as you usually would. Life is too short to obsess about every single calorie you put into your body, especially during a time when you're supposed to just be enjoying the company of your friends and family.

Just because it's wintertime doesn't mean that you have to flush all the work you've done at the gym over the previous year down the drain. However, you also shouldn't beat yourself up too much for indulging here and there at holiday parties. Exercise safely, dress appropriately and use the cold weather as a reason to try out some exciting new indoor fitness classes.
