Summer is pretty much over, even though we've had some incredibly hot days in September. (Which I'm not complaining about—I wish we had this weather year-round.)
Summer was all about being outdoors and being active. My boys enjoyed two week of all-day tennis camp, and we swam pretty much every single day this summer, including one month of swimming in the sea (and pools at our hotels) in Greece.
Besides swimming and tennis, we stayed active by taking long walks after dinner, bike rides, and playing soccer. Now that the weather will inevitably turn colder, I don't want to stop our routine of staying fit and active.
Here are three ways to keep on moving as the days get colder:
1. Layer up, baby! Sure, it's suddenly chilly outside, and you'd much rather sit on the couch with your favourite book or head to Starbucks for a latte, but once you start moving, you'll feel warm in no time. Also, this gives you the excuse to go shopping for a cute new scarf and jean jacket, so you can look good while you're walking.
2. Join a gym! I know many people love running outside no matter what the weather is like, but I prefer, as the months get colder, to do most of my working out in a gym. GoodLife Fitness has been my go-to gym for as long as I can remember, and I love that there is always a location open wherever I am. As long as my running shoes and my workout clothes are with me, I'm good to go. (Also, nothing is as awesome as Body Pump—it'll always be my favourite class!)
3. Try something different. If you've never gone running outside, find a partner, and make it happen. Or go rock climbing, indoors or outdoors. How about joining a volleyball league? Get outside your comfort zone to optimize your work out, and remembercthe most important thing—have fun while breaking a sweat!
