Poll: Cold Weather Exercise

How does your exercise routine change with the change of seasons?  Do you add in different things?  Take any out?  Change locations?

Re: Poll: Cold Weather Exercise

  • Not too much changes for me, since I do most of my workouts at the gym, but I do add in some winter sports.

    While we don't do it often enough to be a significant source of exercise, my H and I try to get out snowboarding a few times and spend a small amount of time skating.

  • I workout at home so not much changes, but I am hoping to get DH into cross country skiing.  It's such a good workout and a great way to be outside during the winter.  We'll see what happens!

    My workouts don't change much either.  Instead of running outside, I just run inside. But my other cardio and lifting workouts are the same.  However, my drive and motivation sky rockets during the winter, which normally its the opposite, but I just love being able to shed the lbs during the winter so I am ready for the summer time :)

    I spend 3/4 of my time in Chicago & 1/4 of my time in Colorado, so my FI and I are able to do more in Colorado.  We went to the mountains this past weekend & went walking.  There are tons of places to hike & ski.  We try to do as much as we can outside as long as it isn't too cold!  We also play racquetball, tennis and basketball during the winter months.

  • I do the same things as what I would do in the summer. It just depends how cold or snowy it is outside then I would just do my cardio in the gym. I much prefer to run outdoors because I think it's more relaxing. When I'm in the gym I get bored doing my cardio because you keep running on the treadmill and nowhere to go.

    Sometimes once a week I would do hot yoga but it's expensive. I have to go to a different studio than my gym.

  • I was still running outside until I got sick. I haven't done anything for a week and a half. Now it is finals so I hope to start again next week.

  • I love running outside. So when the freezing weather hits, I do pilates/biggest loser/DWTS video workouts. I do go on the treadmill...but don't prefer it since it's not the best for my knees.
  • I still run outside when it's cold, I just wear a lot more clothes. I hate running on the treadmill, so I pretty much only do it if it is unsafe for me to run outside (very icy sidewalks, or really extreme temperatures). As long as the footing is good, I actually really like running in the snow, especially in the early morning: it's quiet and pretty and sparkly. The whole world feels like it belongs to me!
  • My outside running usually comes to a halt, but I'm trying to change that this year. No more being a weenie about it being cold!
