COLD WEATHER FITNESS: BENEFITS

It's easy to stay all warm and cozy indoors during the winter months. To keep yourself from becoming a winter exercise dropout, you will need to focus on what you will gain from exercising through the winter.

Cold weather is a great fat burning time of the year. Your body burns extra calories just to stay warm. Winter exercise helps to shake the "winter blues" by releasing endorphins, the mood enhancing hormones of the body. Your energy levels increase, and you sleep better. And when spring finally arrives, you are in better shape.

Unless your doctor advises against exercising outdoors, you should be able to continue your regular outdoor activities, or maybe take up some new ones. It is a good idea to use Tune-Up as a warm-up before sports.
