Summer bodies are made in the Winter!  It has been particularly chilly lately, so now is perfect timing to tackle the problem head on and avoid weight gain and inactiveness throughout the Winter months! We all know how hard it is to get out of bed and pop the gym clothes on, I mean it’s the last thing you want to do when it’s below ten degrees! Here’s a few tips to avoid this happening and to get you back on the active bandwagon!

Well a lot of you are already doing it, attending an indoor gym is a much easier way to stay out of the cold and really it is no different than coming in Summer! The hardest part is that initial step out of bed, once that is over the rest is easy! No embracing the elements, we’ve made it as easy as possible for you!

Try as hard as you can to stick to your regular exercise routine, if you were undertaking regular morning walks but it’s a tad too cold to embrace the elements, do your morning walk through the local shopping centre! Or undertaking some indoor spots/ aquatics in a heated pool.

Or if leaving the house is still too much to take in, try out some of the at home exercise dvds for something new, do some in house circuits or even just have some fun with your children.

We know that motivation is the hardest when it is cold outside but these few things can make that a little easier for you. Even make the most of it and train with a friend or your partner, then when you’re tempted to slack off and stay in bed they are there to stop that from happening!

Another habit we all pick up in Winter is stodgy foods! Something to warm our bellies! And we know that salads can seem like the last thing you want when it’s cold. Try your talent in the kitchen and whip up some scrumptious vegetable soups, they will keep your fiber and nutrient levels up without having to force feed yourself some cold veges or load up on calories!

Try these tips out and let us know how you go! If you’re in need of a new fitness program, let us know here at Fernwood Morayfield and we can help you out!
