(NAPSI)—Many people find that when the temperature falls, so does
their motivation and the frequency of their workouts. But it shouldn’t.
Research has shown that working out through the cold winter months
strengthens the immune system to help fight off those cold weather blues and
Knowing how to stay motivated and what to do to keep your fitness routine
challenging is key: Staying on track and meeting your fitness goals during
the cold season can give you a jump start on setting higher goals and staying
active through spring and summer.
Fortunately, advances in technology and social media have made it easier
to add variety and personalize your workouts. Online videos make it easier
than ever to customize workouts to fit your individual needs and goals, as
well as find inspiration to keep up your hard work regardless of where you
might be in your fitness journey.
To help, Tom Holland, exercise physiologist and Bowflex
fitness advisor, shares these tips on how to diversify your workouts to
maintain your motivation while maximizing your results.
1. Shake up your routine. Many
people do the exact same workout every time, performing the same exercises in
the same order. This is one major reason you stop seeing results—your
body has become accustomed to the stress. A simple yet extremely effective
way to overcome a plateau, or avoid it in the first place, is to simply
change the order of your exercises. This “pre-fatigues” your body
in a new and different way, keeping it challenged and the results coming.
2. Enjoy the great outdoors.
Studies show that you can burn more calories, strengthen your endurance, and
combat the winter blues by working out in the cold. If you decide to
challenge Mother Nature with an outdoor workout, make sure you dress
appropriately with layers and stay hydrated even though you may not feel like
you need it.
3. Work smarter. The new Max
Intelligence platform, available with the Bowflex
Max Trainer M6 and M8 cardio machines (www.bowflex.com/max-trainer),
uses artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze your workouts, and automatically
adjusts your fitness plan to help you continue making progress towards your
goals. Through an initial fitness assessment and predictive analytics, Max
tracks and collects data from your previous sessions, customizes your
workouts every day and provides spoken encouragement to keep up the good
work. In addition, Max can assess your fitness data to serve up appropriate
trainer-led videos and educational content to provide instruction and
4. Mix it up. Find fun videos
to inspire new workouts. There are many available from certified
professionals. Trying something new can help challenge your muscles in
different ways. It also helps build your mental stamina to keep you sharp and
focused as you concentrate on remembering the new movements and order of the
routine. Step outside your comfort zone—you might just discover a new
favorite way to work out.
