TIPS FOR WINTER FITNESS


Your workout doesn't have to take a lot of time. Even 30 minutes of walking in your neighbourhood pays off in increased energy and stamina.. Taking care of yourself is one of the best things you can do for yourself.


Enjoy the year's most beautiful season: In many parts of the Canada, winter is a near-sacred season. Get outside and enjoy the season by bicycling, snow shoeing, snowboarding and cross country skiing for a great workout. Explore parks in your area, find a new bike path through the woods, take a walk around a lake or visit a mountain you haven't seen before. The time spent out in nature will do as much good for your mind as it will for your body.

Return to your club or gym: It takes 30 days to make fitness a habit, and supplementing out-door exercise with increasingly frequent visits to the gym will help diversify your exercise regimen. A well-rounded fitness regimen is important. While aerobic activity such as running or bicycling is good for your heart, resistance training is also a critical component of a balanced program so be sure to take advantage of your club's weight lifting equipment and circuit training classes.

An apple a day: In many parts of the country, autumn is synonymous with the apple harvest. Rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, both of which reduce the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, inhibiting the growth of dangerous plaques along blood vessel walls, and high in dietary fibre, apples are a delicious and nutritious snack that can be enjoyed any time of day, Remember that each of us should be getting at least four to five servings of fresh fruit and vegetables every day..

Make it social: One of the great things about exercise is that it doesn't need to be done alone. Find a friend with a similar fitness level and goals; having a partner helps you both stay motivated. You can use your exercise time to catch up on each other's lives. Track each other online for extra motivation.
