It is dark and cold outside, are you thinking about staying at home and sleep? You are not alone. So here you will find some tips to keep your fitness motivation up
Even most fitness people find it harder to stay motivated and active in winter, so you are not the exception. However, changing that situation is possible. You should start changing your mind and thinking about all the benefits of working out, not only for your body but also for your mind. Do not let laziness catch you and follow these tips that will incentive you to move.
1) Set a goal
According to Natalie Edwards, openfit.com trainer, barre instructor, and professional dancer, focusing on a goal is key to be motivated. Set new goals all the time, for example running more in less, and try to think about how you will feel when you complete your workout.
2) Stay safe
Although you are going to sweat, always remember to use warm clothes so as to avoid catching a cold. But when it comes to safety, you should also consider the best routes and hours to go exercising. Choose roads that have street lights and shops or houses, rather than running in the park and you can as well consider purchasing an alarm to put on your key which could give you a little extra confidence.
3) Find a fitness partner
Working out is always better with a friend, so look for somebody and go running, walking or go together to the gym. The miles fly by when you are busy chatting, the same happens with the time at the gym. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in the mind the social distancing rules.
Winter is not your enemy, if you have been focused on your fitness goals, why stopping because of winter? Follow these tips and change your perspective. Who is ready to start moving?
