In Poor Weather, Outdoor Exercise Often Goes Out The Window. What is the solution? Bring it inside! You do not have to be outdoors to tone your muscles and to get your heart pumping. Look at winter as a chance to shake up your fitness routine. The same exercise routine, day in and day out, can start to get boring to you and stop challenging you. Create a set of activities that will work regardless of what the weather is. Consider riding an exercise bike or swimming indoors, doing aerobic dance or calisthenics, climbing stairs or skipping rope. Do you love to walk? Log in some miles at the local mall.

Need some more inside exercise tips? Try out a few of these:

  1. Turn your chores into a workin. Burn some calories by mopping, scrubbing or vacuuming.
  2. Dance to your favorite upbeat music.
  3. Join an exercise class. Try some yoga, kickboxing or body building/sculpting. Variety can keep you motivated and interested. A class also offers consistency and a social outlet.
  4. Work out to fitness videos or DVD’s. For variety, check out a few from your local library.
  5. Purchase a gym membership. Look for seasonal deals at a fitness club.
  6. Purchase some home exercise gear, such as a treadmill, stationary exercise bike or an elliptical trainer.
  7. Exercise as you watch your favorite TV shows. Get off the couch and lift weights. Do some leg lifts or stretching.

Talk to your child’s teacher about how the classroom is set up. Does the school support kids of all different abilities and what steps do they use to determine them? If the groups are set for an entire year it could be a red flag that the program does not allow children to grow.

Embrace a Strengths and Challenges Outlook

Your child will likely excel at some skills and labor with other ones. Often a child learns the most in a class where they struggle and not where they naturally excel. Leave us your comments.
