It’s not easy to stay active when it’s frigid out. It’s dark and cold when you wake up, making leaving your warm cozy bed to head to the gym seem downright torturous. We also tend to eat heartier, carb-heavy food in winter, so it's easier to pack on the calories. To combat the temptation to be a couch potato during the coldest, darkest months, here are three ways to beat the winter workout blues.
Use YouTube as your personal trainer
Good news — you don’t have to leave your apartment on the days when it’s freezing out just to get a workout in. Fitness gurus Jillian Michaels, Cassey Ho and Amanda Russell — and countless others — all upload routines on YouTube that anyone can watch for free. Whether you want to strengthen your abs, get a bangin’ booty or tone all-over, their workouts will get your heartbeat up.
