As the leaves change colour and the brisk coolness of the air refreshes our next chapter in the season, this is the best time to start planning your winter workout routine. The great thing about winter is that you can focus on all the indoor activities you didn’t get a chance to do because you were enjoying the outdoors so much. Just because winter is close, does not mean you need to turn into a hermit and not enjoy yourself or time with friends/family while also staying fit.
Here are some idea’s on how to keep your social juices going and also get a great workout out in the winter!
