Fit Tip: Winterize Your Workout
Bring the outside in: Many outdoor workouts can be tweaked to function inside. Try transitioning from outdoor boot camp to circuit training on a Cable Motion Dual Adjustable Pulley. Take advantage of Lifescape interactive courses--on specific Life Fitness cardio equipment--which transport you to exotic locales across the globe.
Make a “hot” new playlist: Few things can shake up an otherwise dull workout like some new music. Harness the transformative powers of music by stocking your list with tracks that evoke warm weather and summertime celebrations.
Try a new class: Winter is the perfect opportunity to try out a new class and a new way to work out your body. Group exercise or small group personal training also helps motivate you to show up for the camaraderie, the fun, and the benefits that accompany working out with a pro. Plus, you may meet some workout buddies to help you greet the spring thaw.
Get in the zone: If you are used to high-intensity, strenuous outdoor workouts try preprogrammed cardio machine workouts that simulate hills and/or intervals and customize the settings to push you both aerobically and anaerobically. Don’t forget to use a heart rate monitor; keeping track of your zones will ensure you are working hard enough but not overdoing it.
