5 Tips to keep exercising in the winter

In winter it can sometimes be difficult to maintain motivation for exercise. It is cold, dark quickly, and you prefer to sit comfortably warm on the couch in the evening. Nevertheless, exercising is very good to prevent a winter dip! Here are 5 tips to get through the winter nice and fit!

 

  1. Change your routine. Doing exactly the same thing every time can of course get boring. Join another group lesson or ask our trainers for some inspiration in terms of exercises. They are happy to help you!

 

  1. Find a sports buddy. If you notice that your motivation is starting to fade, it can help to stay in shape with a friend and still give each other a helping hand.

 

  1. Set a goal. Giving yourself a goal that you can work towards gives you direction and motivation. For example, do you want to participate in an obstacle run or other sporting event? Then it helps to see what it takes to achieve that goal. Even if you want to lose weight or just want to feel good about yourself. Ultimately, you already get the satisfaction from the small steps you take in the way there.

 

  1. Download an app. There are plenty of apps that can help you achieve your goal! For example, they can help you with a variety of exercises, from yoga and stretching to cardio and strength. You can also keep track of your results with an app, which often has an extra motivating effect. Examples are MyFitnessPall, Sworkit, Fitness Buddy and RunKeeper.

 

  1. Track your progress. As you find yourself making progress and getting closer to your goal, you will feel fitter and more energized both mentally and physically. Don't be too hard on yourself and be realistic; balance is key. Good luck!
