Winter is here and for most of us the cold weather has arrived, along with snow and ice. If you love spending time outdoors, winter can be fun for playing in the snow and taking advantage of winter sports, but the snow and bitter cold often keep people indoors, which can easily derail workout motivation.
Just because the weather gets cold doesn’t mean that you have to stop exercising outdoors! Obviously we’re not saying you should go run in a blizzard, but people can still enjoy time outdoors even in the winter.
Exercising in the cold definitely takes more time to prepare: you need to plan ahead with the clothing that you will wear, shoes, head gear, glasses to block the wind, etc. It will take a little bit of time to prepare yourself for the elements, but once you get used to it, the planning stage takes less time so you can spend more time outside exercising.
Here are some tips for exercising safely in the cold!
