Let’s face it – winter in Canada can be long – especially if you aren’t into winter sports. So it’s crucial that you have a plan of attack going into winter to make sure you are getting in 20-30 minutes a day of physical activity. This will improve your mood, fitness, and make sure you don’t wake up in Spring with more fat than you’d like!
Here are our top 4 ways for getting in those winter workouts at home without having to venture out in the cold!
1. Workout Videos
These are one of the best tools to have in your fitness library. Use workout DVDs, stream free videos on you tube or subscribe to a video streaming service. It’s great for chicks who aren’t sure exactly what to do and need some motivation. Try our IT CHICKS Fierce in 8 DVDs for a variety of killer workouts in under 30 minutes!
2. Workout Apps
These are great for chicks who know how to workout, but just want a plan. There’s a variety of great apps out there that will give you a plan to do at home and allow you to check in.
3. Invest in Equipment
If you are in it for the long haul (which we hope you are!)and have the space, then investing in some equipment you love great option to have some weights and a piece of cardio equipment like a treadmill or elliptical trainer. Often you can buy second hand or pay in installments to make it easier on the wallet. You can also get a great workout with more inexpensive equipment like bands, a bench, a kettlebell or a TRX (there are too many to list here!)
4. Build Your Own Workouts
If you don’t like someone always telling you what to do, then creating your own workouts is a fantastic option. We suggest to start out do a simple circuit like 1 minute of cardio alternated with 1 minute of strength for 10-20 minutes.
