This is Part 2 of a series of posts about exercising in winter – even though it’s tempting to go into hibernation mode, it’s important to keep fit through the cold months!
Winter is in full swing, which means that if you exercise outside, you’re probably considering ways to bring your routine indoors. If so, we have a few suggestions for making this process easier.
First, changing up your routine for winter can be an opportunity to try something new. Might we suggest one of our classes? Whether it’s yoga, barre, Zumba, or good old-fashioned weight training, we’d love to have you stop by. Our bright lights and pounding rhythms are a great way to sweat out the winter doldrums. Plus, you’ll get to hang out with people in a way that doesn’t involve ugly holiday sweaters or small talk.
Also, inventing a new winter routine can be a way to address trouble spots and focus on areas that need a little extra attention. Maybe you need to build your core, because you’ve been having some lumbar pain. Or maybe your flexibility needs work, so you can survive an epic Christmas shopping trip without experiencing major joint pain. In that case, it might be time to talk to one of our personal trainers, so you can deal with current problems and past injuries in a safe, professional way.
Moving fitness routines indoors is also an opportunity to do strength training. The weight machines in our gym are expensive and difficult to install, which is part of the reason we enjoy providing them for you. In addition, they can help you do resistance exercises (that have awesome benefits for your calorie burn, muscle mass, and bone density) in a controlled way that reduces the risk of injury.
So come on in from the cold! We’d love to have you!
