Staying in shape during the winter months

Staying in shape is a challenging task especially during the cold months of the year. November through February is the coldest time of the year in Northern California when it gets so freezing at night time that the car windows get covered with a thin layer of ice.

I get lazy during those month and any desire to exercise goes out of the window.

What can you do if you want to keep in shape during the winter regardless of the weather conditions? I have found some answers that I want to share with you.


Dancing is a great exercise that kills a lot of calories. If you like going to dance clubs and listening to music, you like dancing. Get up on that little stage by the DJ and dance all night long. Make sure to drink a lot of water and go easy on alcohol. One glass of white wine contains about 250 calories, an amount that you will lose in one hour if you dance. So, this is a wash.

Sign up for dance lessons.

Dance lessons are another activity that can keep you in shape, and that you can do indoors. It helps discipline because usually dance lessons are scheduled at a certain intervals of time, usually once or twice a week.

My favorite class is a hip-hop class. It is an excellent exercise that helps build and maintain your core muscles. Another great class I recommend is Step. Step is a very intense exercise that could be extremely difficult for beginners. The length of class is usually one to one and a half hour, and it is the most effective type of dance exercise for those who want to shed those few calories.

If you feel that hip-hop and step are not for you and want to start slow, salsa is a great class for beginners. With graceful moves and classic Spanish rhythms, you will love Salsa.

Know any more great ways to stay in shape during the winter months? Share it here in the comment section.
