Cold Weather Fitness Tips

As the weather turns cold, we tend to give our own cold shoulder to morning excercise – you know what I’m talking about! Here’s a couple of things to get you hopping, skipping and jogging out of the sack in the wee hours.

3 Ways to get motivated for a morning jog:

1. Cut the time wasting. Pack you gym bag, water bottle and lunch for work the night before. Leave your sneakers at the end of your bed and you have no excuses.

2. Don’t sit your alarm device right next to your head. Pop your phone or clock on a table out of reach, so you’re not tempted to snooze instead of set off for that jog!

3. Team up! You’re more likely to keep that 6.30am date with a mate, and not just with yourself. So find a motivated girlfriend and push each other!
