How to Keep an Exercise Routine During the Holidays

The holidays are officially here–if you don’t believe us, just walk into any Target. And while November and December is truly the “most wonderful time of the year”, your waistline might not think so. Working out during the winter can be daunting because of the weather, so our gift to you is few tips for staying motivated to work out during the holidays.


Get the right clothes: the key to succeeding at just about anything in life is to be prepared. When it comes to winter workouts, shorts and a tee shirt won’t cut it. Be sure to buy the right gear to keep your warming during those jogs or trips to the gym.


Exercise in the morning: we all saying we’re going to exercise after work, but few of us do it on a consistent basis. The best way to keep a consistent workout routine is to do it in the morning. If you have work, wake up an hour early and go for a run or jog. It’ll keep you slim for the holidays.


Warm up inside: If you are going for the morning jog, the weather might be your biggest deterrent. So try warming up inside to get your body temperature up and keep yourself nice and toasty during the workout.
