Winter is here and what a Winter it has been so far! Cold temperatures, snow and other wintery weather has come to pay us a visit. This is a very difficult time for most people to enjoy outside activities and remain active. The winter weather should not be an excuse to dismiss your exercise plan however. If you are not able to go outside for a walk, you can still get the aerobic exercise that your body needs while staying warm inside. Put on an exercise video, play an interactive video game with your children, dance to your favorite music or use that exercise equipment in the garage. The key is to KEEP MOVING!!
