4 Tips To Break Your Winter Workout Rut

Snowflakes are falling, it’s 15 degrees outside, and you have zero desire to get your routine workout in. I don’t blame you! It’s so easy to fall into a slump during the winter and forget all about your regular regime. During the winter, we generally eat more, endure higher stress levels, and restless so it’s especially beneficial to push ourselves to get our legs moving and our hearts pumping! Here are some pointers to help you get back in the groove.

  1. Try something new. What better way to get enthused about exercise than to step out of your comfort zone and try something new! Kickboxing or Pilates anyone? There are plenty of indoor gyms that offer a variety of classes to best suit your needs.
  1. Workout at home. Slide the excuses aside! You no longer have to brave the cold or even the car to get your workout in. Between at-home programs, YouTube, and Pinterest, you will never lack inspiration to break a sweat from the comfort of your own living room! Check out Reliv’s “Picture of Health” board to get some inspiration.
  1. Bring along a buddy. Muster up some motivation by finding a friend with similar fitness goals and interests. You’re much more likely to workout when you have someone to share it with.
  1. Let it snow! There are countless activities that you can enjoy while elevating your heart rate! Bonus – your kids can join too! Snow ball fights, sledding and even ice skating are all fabulous ways to get in a fun workout and embrace the cold weather.
