Indoor Fitness Tips from BiProUSA

In the winter months it’s easy to find excuses to avoid working out – chilly weather, holiday parties, mile-long shopping lists, endless errands – but it’s important for us to stay active and fight the urge to hibernate. Exercise can help with stress management and burn those extra calories from all of the treats and tasty temptations during the holiday season.
 

Listed below are a few fitness ideas from BiProUSA to help you stay active this winter!

Dust Off those DVDs
Warm summer weather lets us enjoy outdoor runs and workouts, but now it’s time to dust off those videos and sweat it out in the comfort of our living rooms! It’s hard to make excuses when all you need is 20 minutes at home to get in your daily fitness. Break out your tried and true videos, or try something completely new! Workout routines and videos are now available on many “on demand” networks, and affordable DVDs can be purchased at many retailers.

Body-weight and Tabata Workouts
If workout videos aren’t your thing, you may want to try a body-weight or Tabata workout. Body-weight workouts can help build core muscles, balance and overall body strength – and require no extra equipment! Tabata workouts are similar to body-weight workouts, but with an intense interval training component.

Make Fitness Fun for the Family
Make fitness a part of your family’s routine by finding ways to connect with each other while burning off a few calories. Break out the Wii and have a tennis competition or Wii Fit obstacle course challenge, or show off your dance moves with Just Dance on Xbox Kinect. If you’re looking for an excuse to limit screen time – have a good ol’ fashioned dance party before dinner!

Give Kettlebells a Go
Don’t let kettlebells intimidate you! A quick kettlebell workout can help build muscles, tone tummies and burn calories. Kettlebell classes are offered at many gyms, but can also be performed in the leisure of your home. Be sure to follow safety guidelines or watch instructional videos before practicing on your own – or even take an intro class to make sure you get your technique just right!

Get Your Groove On at the Gym
If the idea of miles and minutes on a machine makes you dread the gym, find a workout buddy and commit to attending your favorite class together. Many gyms offer a variety of classes – Zumba, spin, sculpt yoga, boot camp – so you are bound to find one that suits your personal style! Having a workout buddy keeps you motivated and holds you accountable for your fitness commitments.
