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.

Making Your Workout A Workin

Double leg hop. Place five throw pillows or for younger kids, empty paper towel rolls in a row, with space between each. Have your child hop over the objects, keeping their legs shoulder width apart.

Frog leap. Have your child squat down (like a frog) with their bottom toward the ground and knees out. Then have him leap up into the air and land in the crouched position. Do this up to 10 times.

Single leg hop to the side. Stand with both legs shoulder width apart. Lift the left leg (so only the right leg is touching the floor) and hop to the right side. Reverse legs. Complete five reps on each side. You can even set up a hopscotch board for this so they can do side jumps and forward jumps.
