Top 5 Fit Tips To Keep You Motivated This Winter!

Winter is here and there is no escaping it! Most people will shy away and hibernate until the flowers begin to bloom in spring….But really, can we afford to put our health and fitness on the back-burner until the warmer months arrive?

Instead of fighting that battle in your head, the one that goes, “I can’t be bothered,” “It’s too cold!” or “I can’t feel my legs! I can’t feel my legs”, why not apply these Fit Tips to your winter routine?

After much research and having done Personal Training throughout a few winters now, I decided to put together some cunning tips that will keep even the dedicated Winter Warmers, out in the cold!

Here are some Fit Tips to help you stay motivated for this winter…

 

Tip #1 Make a batch of healthy warm winter soup: On a Sunday afternoon or evening, take some time to put together a delicious veggie soup that can provide you lunch for the whole week. That way we will prevent ourselves from over-indulging in too many hot-choccies that try and warm us up!
Tip #2 Make exercise a routine. Try and workout at the same time every day. Once it’s a habit, it will be harder to break. A personal training session or bootcamp in the park is an ideal way to get some fresh air and burn off all that stress.

Tip #3 Set winter health and fitness goals and write them down. This will keep you focused. It will also remind you as to why you are exercising in the first place. Whenever you get a spot of the ‘can’t be bothered’ saga in your head, whip out those goals as a friendly reminder.

Tip #4 Do workouts that will make you extra hot and sweaty! Such as cardio, long distance running or HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). Before you know it, you will be stripping off that beanie and scarf quicker than you can say, “Winter Rocks!”
Tip #5 Train for an event. Having a short-term goal such as competing in a fun-run for winter, will help you stay motivated and focused. Remember: several Fun-Runs throughout Australia are approaching us in the next coming months… think of them as your ‘warm-up’ for next summer.
