It’s always harder to stick to an exercise regime in Winter. The weather is awful, the light is growing dimmer and you just want to stay inside with a hot water bottle. However, it’s important to keep up a healthy exercise regime to ensure that you retain your body’s strength. especially in the colder months. For some forms of exercise, you don’t even need to go outside! Yes, you may want to consider still going to the gym with a companion, such as one of the hottest escorts in Stockport, but when it gets really bad, try out some of these exercises to keep your blood pumping.
Who doesn’t watch Youtube videos? They are practically the best source of sharing information and are easy to get on your phone or laptop. That means if you’re looking for an interior work out regime then they are the best place to start. There are some fantastic yoga, pilates and aerobics sessions on Youtube that you can just watch and join in. If you can think of an exercise indoors then you will be able to find a helpful guide for it on Youtube. These sessions are great for building up your body’s strength even when you can’t make it to the gym. We would recommend Yoga with Adriene and Walk at Home by Leslie Sansone to get you started. These channels are especially catered to beginners, so it’s a great way to learn the basics and move up.
As you’re going to be cooped up in your home, it’s time for your exercise regime to start getting creative. Instead of just running out in the cold, rain and snow, why not host parties at your house instead? More importantly, they can be exercise parties. So, you can either host an actual training session or just do something more fun like host a dance party. This is a great way to get you and your friends active and social. Just try to do this during the day rather during the night, that way you can make sure that you don’t disturb your neighbours!
Who doesn’t love jumping into a heated pool with your friends and exercise mates? The best thing about going to the leisure centre is that they are completely exercise focused. They know what the best temperatures are to get your blood pumping, so if you go to a swimming pool you will find that’s it not just a solid ice pool. Instead, it will be warm enough to keep you from freezing, but not hot enough to make you feel tired of lazy. This sort of exercise can be great for those who want to improve their breathing techniques and exercise for longer without excess muscle strain.
You don’t just have to do exercise on your own in the Winter. Try thinking about where you can sign up for classes that you can do indoors! Your local gym or exercise groups are a great place to start, especially if they are for tai-chi, karate or perhaps, even more, cardio-based like weight-lifting and bike riding. The best things about these classes are that if you cannot make it to the training session, you can do them in the comfort of your own home. Just make sure you know what you are doing before you try to dictate your own session. You wouldn’t want to cause yourself an injury!
If you want to turn the cold into an advantage, why not try something new by going out ice skating? This isn’t just a sport that’s for kids. Instead, you can use the cold to power through it and burn around 500 calories per hour! It’s a great dating/outing opportunity as well, so why not take out a brand new lover or one of your friends or family members and have some fun. That way if you fall then you can laugh about it. That and at the end there will always be a mug of coffee to warm you up. It’s the perfect thing to do in Winter.
Are you ready to get active in Winter?
It can be difficult to motivate yourself to remain active in winter. This is due to the cold of the season, as well as how dark it can get. Sometimes you just don’t feel safe exercising when you don’t know who’s around. But if you choose to excise at home, in a gym or leisure centre with some friends, this can keep your body going when it’s expecting to hibernate during the Winter. This way you can make sure that you don’t pile on the pounds when it comes to the Christmas Season. This will make you feel great when you finally get back to work in January.
