At this point, Christmas is right around the corner, which also means there is probably a lot of snow on the ground or at least it is really cold. If it is really cold and there is snow on the ground what happens with our fitness? They have to be brought inside unless we are shoveling. Or at least that is what some people think. I try to keep my workouts both inside and out in the winter, and usually, I consider shoveling my driveway in the winter a workout. It is pretty much cardio and weights. Some of you are probably reading this saying ewe winter, and no I am not doing my best workout in the winter. Remember though there are so many different ways to do your workouts winter included.
You are probably thinking hold up I don’t like to drive in the winter so how am I going to get my fitness in? Remember in previous posts I have said you don’t always have to go to the gym, well winter is a perfect example of that. The way that it is a perfect example is you can work out from home, using workout DVDs, online workouts, workout apps, or workouts you makeup yourself or even fit flex workouts. All of these types of workouts can be done inside or out even in the winter if you choose. Winter may be a slower time for your workouts yes but that doesn’t mean stop them. You can still get a great workout in, in the winter. Do cardio of different forms, shoveling the snow in the winter is cardio. Remember that when there is so much winter when it comes to your fitness and you don’t know how to get in your workout.
Think about your fitness in the winter, can there be so much of it and if so how? You can use the winter to your advantage in terms of your workout. You can do this by lifting cans, bricks, and actual weights, shoveling the snow. Yes, snow shoveling is fitness, have you ever shoveled snow and not broken a sweat? Probably not right, so yes it is fitness. If you just keep moving your body in the winter you are working out a lot which means there is so much of it right? Yes, it does.
Winter can bring with it so much fitness just in a different way. That is why sometimes winter fitness can be so much fun. You can skate, play hockey, or sled that takes a lot of strength and can be a workout too. So never ward out winter when it comes to your workouts. Fitness can be done anywhere, any time of year just remember that. Just keep moving your body in the winter and your fitness will come. Winter fitness is all around just like all other fitness too.

Just move your body as much as you can in the winter and that is where so much fitness comes in. in the winter you are doing a lot of cardio, with minimal amounts of lifting.
