Are you guilty of saying one of these during the winter? “I’ll do it tomorrow.” “It’s too cold outside.” “I have too much to do to work out.” If so, you’re not alone. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut when the days are shorter (and colder!) and the nights are longer.
Here are a few tips to help you stay on track.
1. Get the right gear.
Your wardrobe changes with the seasons, and this should include your workout gear. Make sure you stay warm.
2. Make a date.
Grab a friend and hit the gym for a weekly class. You’ll motivate each other to stick to your fitness goals.
3. Hold a DVD swap
If going to the gym just isn’t your thing, try turning your living room into a gym. Swap out your old fitness DVDs with your friends. This will freshen up your fitness routine and help you stay motivated to keep at it.
4. Switch it up a bit.
Try adjusting your workout routine to fit your schedule. If your evening workout isn’t benefitting you, switch it to the morning. The early-morning daylight may keep you motivated.
