How to stay motivated to workout in the Winter

It’s hard to want to go out and workout when it’s cold, wet or snowing, grey and dark out and anything but going out there is way more appealing, I’m also a bit of a cold weather wimp.

I got Caroline to share lots of action based winter workout tips. As well as how to shift your perspective and change your mindset from thinking of working out as a chore to making it fun and adventurous.

In the holiday season of amazing food, parties, drinking, and TV binging don’t self-sabotage and get off track with your workouts, have a quick listen and get moving.

Besides cold weather and winter workouts, I also get her to share the best place to hike and eat in Madrid because who doesn’t enjoy exploring a city on foot and a good meal.

I find tracking my workouts and having good music motivating as I work out in time to the music. It’s from years of being a dancer; podcasts don’t cut it for me when I’m trying to get going. I use a fitness tracker as there’s nothing like seeing steps and calories burned to encourage me to keep going. The tracker plus bluetooth wireless earbuds are 2 of my essential workout tech items that I’ve used for years.
