The winter season is a perfect excuse for a sedentary lifestyle. With the weather so cold, nobody would want to get out and exercise. But exercising and keeping an active lifestyle in winter doesn’t necessarily require you to stay out chilling in the freezing cold.
Here are our indoor winter fitness ideas:
1. Indoor Swimming. Talk to the local council about finding your nearest indoor pool. If you do not know how to swim, try water aerobics.
2. Invest in Fitness DVDs. There are loads of different forms of indoor fitness programs. We like pilates, yoga, aerobics, zumba and belly dancing. There’s also the internet where you can download videos for free! Now, all you have to do is to turn the living room into a make-shift gym.
3. Jump rope. When we were kids, we used it as a form of fun and play. Now that we are mature, jump rope is an inexpensive yet excellent way to burn calories and fats while staying indoors. A rope and a vast area like the living room or garage are the only things you need for this fitness activity.
4. Do household chores. 10-15 minutes of house cleaning is equal to a warm-up exercise. Stretch, bend and move your entire body as you clean windows, sweep the floor, dust furniture, rearrange household items, etc. Doing so gives you two benefits: a tidier home and boosted health.
