Don’t Let Cold Weather Break Your Workout Plans

12 Feb

Don't let obscenely cold weather eat your workout plans.

February in Pittsburgh means freezing cold temperatures, snowy weather, and big bulky sweaters. If you’re already in need of workout motivation, these factors don’t help matters.* It can be really hard to get excited about working out when you have to brave sub-zero temperatures to get to the gym, especially when you can easily cover that extra layer of blubber with a giant moo moo of a sweater…

If this sounds familiar, it’s time to suck it up and snap out of your fat funk! Sure, even the most dedicated fitness freaks need a little workout motivation sometimes, but choosing to exercise is always a good idea. Here’s why:

  • A good workout will give you energy you didn’t know you had.
  • Working out keeps you healthy.
  • Keeping your workout plans will keep you from busting the buttons on your pants.
  • You’re never going to regret the decision to go to the gym, but you will regret not doing it.
  • The feeling of satisfaction after a good workout makes your gallant effort all worth it. (I swear, this is strongest after a workout that you didn’t really want to do in the first place.)

*If you’re one of the lucky ones who lives in a sunny, warm climate you have no excuse to break your workout plans. If for some reason you do need workout inspiration, consider this, your friends in Pittsburgh are sledding to the gym. Shame on you! Now, go exercise!
