Your health is your most important asset so let’s make this month your month to get moving. To finally have that routine of movement that drives your hormone balance, metabolism and even helps reduce depression and anxiety. Did you know that simply moving once an hour and 25 minutes a day is effective at increasing serotonin and dopamine production………both of which are critical in feeling happier, more fulfilled. I have included several indoor workouts for cold weather.
During the warm summer months, nothing is as enjoyable as run in the sunshine, a dip in the local pool, or rolling out your yoga mat in your favorite local park. When the Autumn breeze starts blowing and temperatures drop we have to get creative and intentional. We need indoor workouts that will get us through the cold months. Depending on where you live in the world, you may still have a bit of time left for outdoor workouts before it’s too cold. But for those of you who are ready to start your indoor workouts, let’s go over some ideas!
If you don’t want to commit to a gym membership, or you simply prefer working out at home as opposed to a gym, then you can always use your own home as a private fitness studio. There are plenty of HIIT workouts available on the internet that only requires little time and little space. You could get away with working out a couple of times a week with sessions of 15 to 30 minutes. This is perfect when you are short on time but still want to see results.
Hit up the gym
For those of you who do live near a gym and prefer that atmosphere, it might be wise to get a gym membership for this part of the year. In the gym, the temperature is always right, you can replace running outside with running on a treadmill, take a yoga class, or you could work on your strength training. There are a lot of possibilities in the gym, and you can constantly switch up your workout without getting bored.
Visit the local indoor pool
If there is an indoor pool near where you live, you may want to pay it some visits in the colder months to come. Swimming is easy on the joints while still working your muscles and raising your heart rate. So, if your knees are sore from hitting the pavement one too many times, then swimming can be great to still be in good shape with a well-rested body when spring rolls around again.
Use YouTube to your advantage
One of my favorite things about YouTube is the availability of free workouts. You can find pretty much any workout on YouTube — yoga, Pilates, dance routine exercises, etc. It’s a limitless option, so you’re sure to find a workout that suits you!
Work on picking one of these options and sticking with it. The weather doesn’t have to undermine your fitness habits — it’s usually as simple as making a small adjustment, such as this. Personally, I love my stationary bike and barre….this at home workouts keep me active even though I sit so many hours a day! Sitting at your computer all day can be as unhealthy as a bad diet or gasp even smoking!!
