I completely agree that winter is the hardest time to get motivated. It’s cold and dark outside and boy does a cosy night in front of Netflix sound inviting. Whilst turning into a couch potato is so tempting it really does nothing for your figure. Winter doesn’t last forever, so why not see January as the perfect time to take your lives in your hands and get fit. Here’s 5 tips on how you can stay active and feeling good this Winter.

Join a walking group

If you don’t feel you can stick to a exercise regime on your own why not join a walking group? By joining a group you’ll feel more motivated to succeed as not going will mean you not only let yourself down but your walking group too. If you can’t find any groups to join you could always rope your friends and family in to starting a walking group.

You don’t need to spend lots of money and can get all this equipment for under £100.00 on Amazon!

Climb your stairs

You know when you race up the stairs you feel like you’ve run a marathon? Running up the stairs can be great cardio as you physically have to lift your body up every step. This will get your heart racing and certainly burn off all those calories you consumed at Christmas!

Go swimming
