As the nights draw in and the mornings are getting gloomy, it is hard to stay motivated. We all look forward to the cooler nights, baggy jumpers, chestnuts by the fire and pumpkin-spiced drinks BUT one thing we’re not so keen on during Autumn and winter is EXERCISE.
Well… you’ll probably be surprised to learn that Autumn is actually one of the best seasons to get fit.
Health and Winter Flu
Exercising in cooler temperatures is said to actually strengthen your immune system and decrease your chances of suffering from a cold when winter comes around. Exercise will also help you to maintain a healthy weight, lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, strengthen your muscles and bones and reduce stress. So wrap up warm and get out there!
Fitness remains the top resolution every year among those who declare ‘new year, new me’ – so why not get ahead and start this side of Christmas? Studies show that it typically takes around four weeks for the body to adapt to lifestyle changes so starting your routine now means you’re more likely to meet your goals. When everyone else is busy dreaming up their resolutions – you’ll already be part-way there.
Summer bodies are made in Winter.
The Beauty of Autumn
Autumn is a beautiful time of the year. Enjoy crisp, quiet morning runs in your local tree-lined, leaf-covered park. Getting up and out early is a great way to feel energised for the rest of the day.
Cold Weather Comfort Foods
With the cold weather, comes heavy stews, hot chocolate and pumpkin pie. Staying on top of exercise and being fit and healthy means your body is more likely to crave healthy food which supports your training.
Confidence and Christmas Parties
As you get fitter and stronger you will notice small but definite changes in your confidence levels. This may come from a combination of feeling healthier, feeling better in the way you look or that sense of achievement you get when you stick to your routine and hit your goals. Feel fabulous during party season and start training now.
