How to stay active all winter...

Just because the season has changed, it doesn't mean that you have to give up on your workout routine. You can stay fit no matter the temperature.

➤ Don’t skip the warm up - In colder weather, you muscles are tighter, making them more prone to pulls and strains.

➤ Stay hydrated

- You still sweat even in cold weather and lose fluids and electrolytes.

➤ Protect your extremities

- Wear gloves, warm socks, and a hat or headband.

➤ Dress in layers

- Dress in layers that can be removed when you start to sweat.

➤ Post-workout refueling plan

- What you put in your body after a workout is just as important, if not more, than what you put in it before.

➤ Mix up your fitness

- In the winter, try something new like indoor rock climbing, a dance class, fitness boxing, or an at-home fitness DVD.
