Five tips on how to stay healthy and active during the winter months
1Slow and steady The cold can make you not want to do any physical activities, so set some short-term goals that you can achieve 2-3 times a week.
2Invest in new workout gear Nothing makes you want to go to the gym more than trying out your new gear. Choose something that will last you a while and
that will help in your training like a good pair of shoes or gloves.
3Dress accordingly If you’re going to be running outside make sure you dress warm, but with clothes that will not soak when you sweat. Although
you may be sweating, the wet clothes can make you colder and very
4Drink lots of water Make sure you’re drinking lots of water throughout the day. Remember winter makes the day seem to go by fast by getting
dark earlier, but keep up your water intake until you go to bed. The
more hydrated you are, the better the workout in the cold and the
better you will sleep.
5Find a workout buddy Nothing gets you to work harder and more often than a gym buddy. Having a gym buddy will encourage the both of you to go,
especially when it’s - 30 degrees outside.
