“Winter is Coming” is not only the tag line of the world’s most watched television series. It is also a seasonal reality. With winter comes the dropping of temperatures, the earlier sunsets, and for many of us, the reduction of motivation. Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather or the angle at which our planet revolves around the sun, BUT we can affect our choices regarding our fitness and well-being.

Choosing to exercise can have its challenges whether it be Fitness Classes indoors, Bootcamp  outdoors or doing your own thing at the park. So to help weigh up our options, we want to look at the argument between exercising outdoors vs indoors.

Many people love taking a run along the beach or joining their friends for a bootcamp in the local park. When picturing either of those images in your mind, do you include wet grass, groups of unenthusiastic peers and cold weather? Of course not!

The best way to not let the good fitness habits you’ve built in the warmer months wane away, is to move your exercise regime inside. It’s as simple as that! The benefits of doing a circuit training class like SFX At Ruben’s, can be felt year round, but during the colder winter months it is a no-brainer.

  1. Comfort
    • Well Lit
    • Warmer
    • Dryer
    • Muscles stay warmer helping to avoid injury
    • No special clothing needed
  1. Social
    • Attendance, people actually come as opposed to being outdoors
    • Your peers are more comfortable making them pleasant to be with
  1. Safety
    • Instructors don’t need to plan for the conditions
    • Use your regular equipment
    • Surfaces are not wet
    • Risk of muscle injury due to cold is not an issue

Winter may be coming, but you don’t need a collection of medieval knights from a fantasy world to keep you safe. The warm community at the gym will do that for you! We look forward to seeing you soon.
