Stay Fit All Winter (away from snow) With Easy Indoor Exercises

Brockport student works out with trainer in school gym.

Winter is in full swing in the northeast, but the frigid temperatures and cold weather should not be an excuse to give up on working out. Sure, it may be too cold to take a run outside or head across campus to the gym, but there are still various ways to undergo intense workouts right in your dorm or living room. Along with eating the right foods, having a consistent workout routine all year is essential for the healthy results you are looking for!

As students come back to campus from winter break, remember that staying active during the winter months is important for both your fitness and personal health. Keeping an activity schedule in the cold months will help you to lose (or maintain) body weight, keep your immune system healthy to fight off winter illness, and stay positive thanks to the released endorphins that can boost your happy mood.

Here’s some great indoor exercises you can do right in your dorm or apartment in order to keep you healthy and in shape leading up to the nicer spring weather:
