This is a great time of year to enjoy exercise outside. The sun, mild weather, and cooler evenings are perfect for a walk, run, or bike ride. Soon, we will start to lose sunlight and warm days, which means many people will find it hard to squeeze in a workout.
Follow these simple steps to avoid the time change blues:
1 - Plan AheadDecide on your indoor or outdoor exercise in advance. Decide which time of day is best for you and plan accordingly. If morning is when you want to exercise, for the morning have your clothes ready to go. For evening workouts, bring a change of clothes with you.
2 - Willingness to ChangeBe willing to change your routine depending on the seasons. Changing your routine can help the body burn more calories and avoid boredom.
3 - Workout DVDHave an efficient and effective DVD at home, like the 3-Step Toning DVD. This can come in handy if the day got away from you, it's dark or you have no desire to go to the gym.
4 - Fuel Your BodyLots of fruits, vegetables, and water will help your body stay energized longer.
You don't have to let your fitness go through the winter. Start planning today and maintain your fit body.
