Keeping fit in Winter
January 18, 2013
But with the average weight gain during the colder months being around 2-4 kilos, you’re likely to regret not being more active when the button on your jeans threatens to give up its hold every time you sit down. Thankfully, Menzies Hotels have found some simple and effective tips to keep fit in winter that will help you stay in shape and feel great.
One of the biggest barriers to overcome when starting any exercise plan is motivation. It’s always difficult to make yourself do something that’s not exactly enjoyable, so setting realistic targets can help boost your mood as well as maintain fitness levels. You can get some really decent results by exercising for just 10 minutes a day, but the most important thing you need to do is start.
At Menzies Hotels we want to make sure you have everything you could possibly need when you stay with us, there are Waves Health and Leisure Clubs available at a selection of our locations. As well as heated pools, spa saunas, steam rooms and in some cases squash and tennis courts, these facilities also include state-of-the-art fitness equipment, so you can stick to your exercise regime in comfort and luxury.
Remember that exercising indoors can be just as effective as outdoor activity. If your routine starts to become repetitive, add some variation by including new exercises or learning a new fitness system such as yoga or pilates. You’re more likely to stick to your regime if you keep things interesting and it’s a great way of finding out what works best for you.
Why not kick off your winter keep-fit plan by spending a weekend with Menzies Hotels and taking advantage of our Waves Health and Leisure Clubs? With all the exercise equipment and facilities you could ask for, it’s a fantastic way to get you motivated and feeling good about staying active, even when it’s cold outside.
