Winter Workouts - Burn 32% More FAT!

It’s too cold where I live for Outdoor Fitness!  How can I still do one of your workouts?

 Alright, so the weather outside may be changing from warm to cold, but, don’t let that interfere with your outdoor fitness routine. Your body is remarkably adaptive to hot and cold weather. 

In general it takes 7-14 days to acclimate to temperature changes.  The best way to adapt is to simply continue with your routine season to season.  The right clothing and the right attitude will keep you on the program throughout the year.

Here’s some inspiration for you--

According to a study from the University of Tennessee, exercising in the fresh air on chillier days burns 12% more calories than the same workout performed behind closed doors — and can burn up to 32% more fat, as your body has to work harder to insulate itself.

Tip: Don’t forget to warm up. On colder days you’ll want to lengthen your warm up from 5-10 minutes, to about 10-20 minutes.
