Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/16/2013 -- With winter approaching, many struggle to find exercise practices that still allow them to get outside, despite the cold. Diet is important this time of year with holiday gatherings and treats, but just as important is physical activity. If a person prefers outdoor physical exercise to membership in a gym, here are some activities to try to keep up exercise habits despite the snow and cold.
Sledding is not only a fun activity, but a physically engaging one as well. It’s estimated that just over an hour of tobogganing can help burn off a few bites of truffles or other goodies one may have indulged in. Along the same lines, cross-country skiing and snowboarding have numerous physical benefits as well as social ones. Expertise is not needed to engage; just a few pieces of equipment (which can sometimes be rented) and a sense of adventure and this activity will burn off numerous treats that were enjoyed during a party.
Another social activity that is fun for all ages is ice skating. Dress warmly for the chill in the air, and glide around the rink with friends is great for toning the whole body through balance exercises, and getting the heart rate pumping through the large movements needed to propel the body around the rink.
Winter also doesn’t have to stop a jogging habit. With proper footwear and clothing, jogging can still take place despite the cold and snow outside. An alternative to jogging is snowshoeing, which is also an excellent opportunity for social engagement as well as physical activity.
These are just a few winter wonderland physical activities one can take part in to stay fit and healthy through the winter months. Ask friends to join in, and everyone will reap the benefits of more exercise throughout the holiday season with improved moods, and smaller waistlines.
