Keep up the exercise during winter
By RACHAEL RICKARD
Mountain Gym & studioFIT
Keep working: Do something different -- join a yoga class, lift weights, try
indoor cycling, martial arts, or a group training programme.
With rainy days and frosty mornings
fast approaching, don't be tempted
to stash away your workout gear.
With a change in season, set yourself
a goal for the winter months -- that
way, you'll be less likely to find
yourself hibernating on the couch!
Continuing an exercise regime
will be good for your mind and
If you are outdoors, you'll also be
getting the vitamin D your body
needs. Vitamin D3 is produced in
our skin after exposure to ultraviolet
B light from the sun or artificial
sources. A lack of vitamin D can
result in thin or brittle bones, which
may appear as rickets in children or
osteoporosis in older adults.
Getting more exercise will also
lower your risk of catching a cold.
Studies show those who exercise
moderately experience 20-30 per
cent fewer colds than those who
don't. So if staying in shape, having
strong bones, being happier, and
catching fewer colds appeal to you,
here are some suggestions to get
through your winter workouts:
Set a goal
Setting yourself a goal to achieve
can help keep you focused and
motivated on the yuckiest of days.
Attack your bucket list and if you
don't have one, turn off the TV and
get writing one.
There are plenty of 10km runs,
half marathons and marathons in
spring, which can act as good base
training for summer events and
sports. Get Googling or turn your
next coffee date with a friend into a
goal-setting brainstorming session.
Join something different
Yoga, dance, lifting weights,
indoor cycling classes, martial arts,
or group training programmes can
be beneficial to give your body a
variety of exercises, and by
committing, you'll find more people
to help keep you motivated.
Layer it on. One of the biggest
mistakes cold-weather exercisers
make is dressing too warmly.
Exercise generates a considerable
amount of heat -- enough to make
you feel like it's warmer than it really
is. At the same time, once you start
to tire and the sweat dries, you
can get chilled. The solution? Dress
Protect your extremities
When it's cold, blood is directed
to your body's core, leaving your
hands and feet vulnerable to the
cold. Try wearing a thin pair of
gloves under a pair of heavier gloves
or mittens lined with wool or fleece.
You might want to buy thick
thermal socks or an extra pair of
regular socks. And don't forget a hat
Choose appropriate gear
If it's dark, wear reflective
clothing. To stay steady on your feet,
choose footwear with enough
traction to prevent falls. Wear a
helmet for skiing and snowboarding.
Head out into the wind
You'll be less likely to get chilled
on the way back if you end your
workout -- when you may be sweaty
-- with the wind at your back.
Drink plenty of fluids
Drink water before, during and
after your workout -- even if you're
You can become just as
dehydrated in the cold as in the
heat, from sweating, breathing and
increased urine production.
Pay attention to wind chill
The wind can penetrate your
clothes and remove the insulating
layer of warm air that surrounds
your body. Fast motion -- such as
skiing, running, cycling -- creates
wind chill because it increases air
movement past your body.
Be aware of the wind chill and if
it's too cold -- hit the gym.
Almost everyone can exercise
safely in the cold, including people
with asthma and heart problems.
If you have health concerns, check
with your doctor or health
