With the cold (and icy) winter I end up working out at the gym more often. I actually love my gym but also love getting in some long walks outside, which just isn't in the cards on some days.

Persistence is more important than perfection.

Don't assume your freedoms are assured.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

I change my winter workouts, I snowshoe and I try to use exercise bike at least 3 times per week. I find it difficult to get workouts in this time of year.

I still get in my workouts. I do miss doing my runs outside. Most of all I miss working in the garden and yard.

My routine doesn't really change with the weather, because I mostly do indoor workouts all year. I use my Elliptical, and do boot-camp style DVD workouts for strength. The only thing I miss in the winter is my walks.

Reading your response makes me think of it a little differently. It's probably a good thing to treat the seasons as an opportunity to switch up the routine and get into different activities. Instead of thinking of how restrictive winter weather is, I should think of how many new opportunities it presents. Snowshoeing and skiing for example, are great activities that aren't possible in the warmer months, but are great for fitness and enjoyment. Thanks!

Some of the routine surely changes, because the conditions change.

I walk a lot, and I spin three times a week year 'round (not currently because of a broken & displaced bone).

Summer brings hiking and biking.
Winter brings ice skating, snowtubing, and sledding.

Hi all,

I'm curious if anyone changes their fitness routine during the winter due to the cold weather?

I have always had difficulty getting myself into a gym routine, so a gym membership hasn't really been a great option.

Instead my outdoor activities drop down to only walking in the winter, with running and biking taking a break until the Spring.

Then I focus on weight training I can do at home - bodyweight exercises and some weights with a set of PowerBlocks. I continue to intermittent fast and my results seem to stay consistent through winter.

Does anyone else have any tips to share on what works for them during the cold winter weather?
