Staying active in the colder season is easier said than done. With personal training in Northfield, NJ and throughout the state, Tilton Fitness is here to help you conquer the seasonal obstacles! Warm-up outside of the blanket; exercising in cooler weather may surprise you with some added advantages! 

Advantages of Cool Weather Workouts

  1. No humidity! Remember your mid-summer workout? You’d leave the shower to be met outside with discomfort and another sweat. No humidity, no heat, refreshing post-workout feels.

  2. Immunity boost! Your body is your temple, especially in the winter. A workout can prevent simple bacterial infection and promote a strong immunity system, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

  3. Burn more calories! In cooler weather, your body works harder to regulate core temperature. Temperature regulation and shivering lend to burning more calories during your workout.

  4. Staying hydrated! Sweat in cooler temps evaporates quickly into the dry air, tricking you into thinking your body is losing less water. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to hydrate and water your body more than usual!

If outdoor workouts are your downfall, warm up with one of our trainers at a Tilton Fitness near you in New Jersey. Book a club tour or sign up for a 3-day pass today to get started on your fitness journey!
