Tips to Stay Active this Winter

Tips to Stay Active this Winter

It can be tough to stay active during winter months, especially during the holidays. The temptation to stay in and hibernate is all too real! Now that the holidays are over, it’s the perfect time to switch things into full gear and get moving. Just because it’s a little bit cold out doesn’t mean that you can’t continue to have fun and exercise.

Here are 4 simple ways that you can boost your amount of winter exercise. These can be rotated and mixed and matched for a well-rounded activity schedule.

Classic Gym Workout

If you think about it, the weather outside shouldn’t really affect your performance in the gym, since you’re exercising indoors. The hardest part really is just dressing up and getting to the gym. Granted, this can be tough if the weather is icky.

Some find it helpful to schedule specific winter exercise cycles—perhaps you want to focus more on strength-building, since you won’t need to be showing off your summer bod soon. Whatever your choice, it’s up to you—just stay consistent.

If getting to the gym is too much of a hassle, consider working out closer to home—or at home! At 5333 Connecticut Ave., our residents have full access to our state-of-the art fitness center and yoga room. That way, you’ll never miss a workout!

Get Movin’ Around the Home

One thing that many people don’t notice is how slowly they move around their home or living space. However, doing basic chores can definitely get your heart rate going, even more so if you move at a slightly faster pace. Rearranging furniture can burn about 100 calories in just 15 minutes; redecorating can net you over 150 calories for just ½ an hour. Also, choose healthier options such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator or doing some light calisthenics while you’re watching t.v.

Put your Devices to Use

Many don’t realize how helpful your phone or tablet device can be in terms of fitness. There are a lot of great home workouts and bodyweight sessions that you can follow using your smartphone or tablet. There are also a ton of great fitness apps to download, and you can also use fitness wristbands to monitor your progress. Even a simple timer app can do wonders for short workout sessions on the fly. If it comes down to it, you can always put some headphones on and dance!

Participate in a Winter Sport

An easy way to stay consistently active is to find a fun sport that you really love to do. When it comes to winter activities and sports, there’s no shortage of options. You can hit the slopes for some skiing or snowboarding—these in particular are known to burn a ton of calories. Other great options include snow-shoeing, ice skating, or simply going for a hike. The more fun you’re having, the more likely you’ll keep doing it!

Winter exercise easy once you get into the swing of things. It also helps tremendously when you have gym and yoga facilities built right into your luxury dwelling place. Contact us today to learn more about living in a premiere apartment space at 5333 Connecticut Ave.
