It’s Cold Outside, How the Hell do I Still Get my Workout in?

Winter has arrived! The snow is flying and the wind chill is here to stay for the next few months. For many of us winter is the time of year when we begin to hibernate. Yep, that’s right we begin to barricade ourselves inside and avoid leaving the house at all cost. Sound familiar?

For most of us during these cold months, our outdoor workout regimens become a thing of the past…no more outdoor running or walking. No more leisure bike rides. As a result, many of us become more sedentary during the winter months. But we don’t have to! You can still get a good workout in and never have to leave the comfort of your home. Get cardio and strength training without ever having to brave the frigid temperatures.
