Winter months can really get you in an exercise rut. They can be dark, depressing, and cold. It’s hard to stay motivated and easy to slip (especially with all the holiday parties and festivities coming up on the horizon). With a few simple changes and tweaks to your daily routine, you can easily motivate yourself towards your fitness goals this season.
Today I’m teaming up with Jazzercise to bring you 4 tips for staying motivated this winter. Who remembers Jazzercise from the 80s!? I do! Well they are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year and the iconic company continues to evolve in ways that make physical fitness accessible and fun.
This year, Jazzercise, the company that pioneered aerobic dance fitness and became a global phenomenon, released their newest exercise program: Jazzercise On Demand. The app-based streaming service allows subscribers to access Jazzercise exercise videos at any time, from any location.
Jazzercise created the app to make physical fitness more accessible. The videos offer a variety of choreography, targeting different muscle groups and different types of workouts, including cardio, stretch training, and more. So there’s no more excuses! Let’s get fit this winter together with these motivating tips:
1. SWITCH IT UP
Doing the same exercise routine day after day can get a little boring in my opinion. What I love about Jazzercise On Demand is that there are so many different types of classes to choose from. They have a gamut of options ranging from dance cardio (my personal favorite) to strength, restore, and even some bonus options including freebies, tips, and other fun stuff. You can choose a different class each day or stick with a category you love. The options are endless!
2. MAKE THE TIME
It’s always hard to find the time or make the time to exercise…or at least I always like to give that excuse. This season, try to make it a priority and set an achievable goal of working out a certain amount of times a week. Getting to the gym is another effort in itself, so using Jazzercise On Demand at home from your computer or phone is an easy solution.
As I said above, there are so many different classes to choose from. In a time crunch? No problem! They have a section where all the workouts are categorized by time. So whether you have 10, 20, 30, or 40 minutes to spare, there is something for everyone.
3. SET AN ACHIEVABLE GOAL
I always like to set goals that are achievable, not too stressful, and easy to add into my daily routine. In my mind, start small and then build up to a tougher challenge is the way to go. This winter season I’m planning on working out at least 4 times a week. I’m lucky that my daughter still naps, so while she is doing so, I can open up my Jazzercise On Demand App and choose from a wide range of workout options. Also putting this goal in in this blog post will help hold myself accountable and maybe inspire some of you guys to set some goals for yourself.
4. MAKE HEALTHY DECISIONS
It can honestly get tough trying to make healthy decisions during the holiday season. There are so many temptations at all the holiday parties and too many dips and sweets. This winter I’m going to try my hardest to eat healthy during the week and then allow myself to indulge more over the weekends when celebrating the holidays with family and friends. Also if you’re meeting your exercise goal, then you should be allowed to have that piece of pie if you want it…am I right?!
So there you have it. 4 tips to get motivated this winter. Hopefully this post will inspire you too to set some goals for yourself for the new season and stick with them. Also make sure to check out Jazzercise On Demand for a fun variety of exercise classes at your own convenience.
