Jump Start Your Winter Workout!

It is typical to experience weight gain during the winter season and often times we don’t end up losing those extra pounds the rest of the year. Year after year, the pounds can add up! To prevent winter weight gain and maintain a healthy lifestyle it is important to try and keep active all year round.

Below are some tips to help you stay active this winter:

  • Mix it up! Don’t get stuck in a workout rut. Try a new exercise every few weeks to keep motivated and ensure your body is using different muscles.
  • Develop a set of regular activities that you can always do no matter what the weather holds. For example, discover indoor as well as outdoor options.
  • Take advantage of winter activities like ice skating, sledding, skiing, or snowshoeing.
  • Plan ahead. Make physical activity a regular part of your daily or weekly schedule and add it to your calendar.
  • Find an accountability partner. It is helpful to find someone with whom you can check-in on a regular basis. Choose a supportive, non-judgmental friend, family member, co-worker, health coach, personal trainer, etc

Enjoy the health benefits of staying active. Exercising regularly during the winter months will help you maintain or lose weight and help reduce stress.
