Feeling The Chill

The winter chills have arrived, the colder mornings have kicked in and getting out of bed has definitely become a little bit harder but now is the time to stop and think about those goals and the sacrifices you need to make in order to achieve them.

It easy to get out and be active when the weather is warm, dry and sunny just chck out all those fair weather runners and walkers in the Spring and Summer months. But as the weather gets colder and wetter – this is the time when real champions are made. If you are thinking about taking the winter off from training or keeping fit and healthy then remember that winter leaves the same way it snuck up on us and then Spring is here once again.

Don’t sit on the couch and vegetate over those colder months – make sure you find ways to keep up the activity. Of course, if you don’t want to wrap up and head out for your usual run or walk there are a number of other options available. Try to find a home workout you can enjoy (many can be done with little or no equipment), head to the pools; swimming is grrat cardio and the water adds some resistance or look for other activities to do inside – why not learn to dance; great cardio and its social too or look for an indoor sport.

They say abs are made in the kitchen and that might ot might not be the case but one important thing to remember is that Summer bodies are made in the Winter months.

Now get off the couch and do something….
