When the weather outside is frightful, the thought of exercise can be a bit daunting as well. After all, the last thing anyone wants to do in the bitter cold of winter is stick to a fitness regimen.
Thankfully, there are ways in which you can stay focused on your health goals while avoiding freezing cold temperatures. Don’t let the cold weather stand in the way of your health. Check out these easy exercise tips as alternatives to outdoor exercise to work on your fitness and avoid the winter blues.
- Planks, squats and jumping jacks. These tried and true exercise moves can be done in the comfort of your living room. However, those aren’t the only exercises you can include. Build strength, endurance and good cardiovascular health with everything from dumbbells to jump ropes, all of which can be used indoors.
- Spinning classes. Nothing says workout like a good old fashioned spinning class. Indoor cycling burns calories, works out tons of muscles in your body, and keeps your exercise routine fun.
- Online videos. A couple of decades ago, we had fitness videos on tape. These days, find your fitness videos online! Check out YouTube and look up exercise routines to try indoors. You’ll be surprised how much variety you find right at home.
- Dancing. Dancing is a great way to exercise while having fun. When the cool temperatures lead to chilly feet, what better time to put on your dancing shoes?
- Yoga. For a relaxing way to stay fit, look no further than yoga. With both mental and physical benefits, yoga is the ideal indoor fitness regimen to get you in the spirit of the season.
- Cleaning! That’s right! When all else fails, rest assured that a good cleaning session around the house is a way of getting your exercise during the winter, without having to go outside.
