It’s easy to see why people enjoy working out alfresco, whether you are challenging your friends to a pick-up game of volleyball at the beach, testing the strength of a carabiner on the side of a cliff, or jogging with your dog. But, there will undoubtedly be at least a few days this winter season when Jack Frost’s arctic temperature or dangerous, icy terrain will force even the most stalwart outdoor exercise enthusiast inside. That’s no reason to hibernate. Beat the winter blues (and blahs) with these brrrrrilliant tips from Life Fitness.
Bring the Outside In: Many of your outdoor workouts can be tweaked to function inside. Try transitioning from outdoor boot camp to circuit training on the Cable Motion Dual Adjustable Pulley machine. Take advantage of Lifescape interactive courses, which will transport you to exotic locales across the globe and are available on Life Fitness Elevation Series Treadmills, Cross Trainers, and bikes.

You can barely dance on stable ground. Yet, when you see these treadmill dance videos you want to try it- don’t you? You find yourself running in step with the beat of your music and think, maybe I’ll just add in a shoulder pump.
Or, maybe that’s just me. And, my love of rhythm has only grown since Life Fitness added music video content to our cardio products.

The concept known as ‘flow’ involves finding something you enjoy doing so much that you lose track of time while doing it. It’s always important to stay mentally aware of your movements when using fitness equipment, however, you can trick your mind and body into losing track of time and getting into an exercise ‘flow’ with a few tricks. .
TV doesn’t have to mean sedentary. Multitask by watching TV when you work out and you may be able to find the ‘flow’ more easily. The TVs in your gym are meant to act as healthy distractions while you exercise.
Try aligning your next gym visit with timing of a favorite TV show – watch it from a fitness machine instead of your couch, and let your mind escape while your body continues working out.
