Maybe the weather is too harsh for breaking a sweat outdoors, or maybe you just don’t feel like leaving the house when temperatures start to dip, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stay fit in other ways! There are different kinds of tools you can use for staying in shape without leaving your living room - for example: adding dumbbells, sliders, or resistance bands to your routine will amplify muscle tone without you having to brave the cold. I looove the extra challenge of trying out exercise move variations with accessories, and resistance bands are my favorite! That’s why I created my own BURN resistance band set, so we can all stay on the same page & get in amazing shape together no matter what the season is!
Exercising outside can be super refreshing and give you an extra boost of energy, though it can also be a little difficult to acclimate to chilly weather at first. It’s especially important to warm up before working out if you’re hitting the cold, because stiff muscles & joints lead to greater risk of injury (which will not keep you on track with fitness goals through the winter). Try hydrating with a cup of hot tea before leaving the house, and do some stretching and light cardio to get limber before the real sweat session begins! Want all my warmup videos at your fingertips?

You’re not limited to jogging during the colder seasons! And in some parts of the world, going for a run in freezing weather is just not a safe option. Depending on where you’re at, there are different activities you can participate in that get your heart rate up and qualify as a good workout! Ice skating, hockey, skiing/snowboarding, and snowshoeing will keep your legs toned, and even dragging a sled up little hills can make for a good upper body workout. When it comes to arm exercises, building a snowman, making a fort, and having a snowball fight can really get your muscles moving. Ever try making snowman-building into a sport? I’m thinking deep squats and shoulder presses!
