It’s snow excuse!

My last blog post covered the topic of ‘not having enough time’ to exercise.  This week I thought I’d be a bit topical and look at the excuse of the weather – especially with the snowfall we had in the High Wycombe area on Saturday night and with more promised!

Now obviously we don’t want people to be unsafe and trek out unnecessarily, but using the snow, or just the fact that it is too cold, as an excuse not to exercise, is no excuse at all – exercise does warm you up, you know!

If you can’t get out of the house for classes, that’s fine (I had to cancel my early and mid morning bootcamps yesterday because of concerns for customers’ safety) – but if you can’t get out of the house, then more than likely you have more time because you aren’t  going to be doing the other things you usually do either!  So it’s a perfect opportunity to fit in some exercise.  You don’t have to slog away for hours on end, in fact just a 15-minute workout with the right exercises and at the right intensity is going to be equivalent to many people’s hour-long workouts at the gym.  So are you really telling me that if you’re staying in all day you don’t have 15 minutes spare to exercise?!

You don’t even need any equipment – you can perform exercises using your own body weight such as squats, press ups, lunges, tricep dips, the plank – the list is endless. If you do just 1 minute each of the exercises I’ve just suggested and repeat them twice, you’ve got a good 10-minute work out already.

So what are you waiting for – if you can’t reach your class or gym, then do it at home!

Let me know if you need any help or advice and I can give you a short workout to do.
