As the weather gets colder, we have a tendency to stop going for walks/runs outside and become less active. Instead of stopping your activities, stay healthy and active this winter by bundling up and continuing to get your exercise in!
Before exercising in the cold, whether that be walking, running or biking, warm up your muscles!
Why warm up?
Don’t forget, when exercising outside in the winter make sure you are cautious of very cold temperatures and ice on the roads/sidewalks!
Stay tuned for a blog on workouts can you do indoors this winter!
