Exercise Tips for Inclement Weather

Your health matters. You work hard to stay physically fit, but what happens when the rain gets in the way of your daily run or your bike route is interrupted because of snow? At Fox Insurance Agency, we understand the importance of physical fitness, and we want to help all of our clients get healthy amounts of exercise no matter what Mother Nature decides to dish out.

When the temperature drops, be sure to wear clothes that will keep you warm without making you sweat. As a general guideline for running in the cold, dress for weather that is 20 degrees warmer. This should keep you warm enough while running in the cold without causing you to overheat.

Need to bring your bike in off the snowy or wet streets in wintertime? Consider taking a spin class at a local gym instead. Many boutique fitness centers have monthly membership options you can take advantage of during the winter months. This way you can stay fit even when the snowflakes fly.

Do you miss taking the kids to the park once the temperature drops? Although it’s great to let them run off some energy in the great outdoors, you can also let them get some exercise indoors. Family fun centers in your neighborhood provide a variety of indoor activities to get kids off the couch and into the action. Or you can take them to the skating rink where the whole family can move and groove together.

Don’t let excuses get in the way of your health and fitness goals. When the weather gets wet and slippery, opt for indoor activities to help you burn calories, build muscle and improve your cardio-vascular health. Fox Insurance Agency can help you find health insurance solutions, but we also encourage preventative care through health and fitness.
