Oh the weather outside is frightful‚and we‚re in the middle of a pandemic. It‚s safe to say, you‚re going to be spending a lot of time at home this winter.

This week on the Vibrant Health blog, we‚re sharing five tips to crush your workouts this winter (from the comfort of your own home)! How to Crush Your At-Home Winter Workouts
  1. Do What Brings You Joy
  2. Fuel Your Body
  3. Go Digital
  4. Set Up Your Fitness Space
  5. Find a Workout Buddy
  1. Do What Brings You Joy
First things first: it‚s important to find an exercise that brings you joy ‚ one that truly feels good in your body. Just because your best friend is a yoga guru doesn‚t mean you have to love yoga too! Think about simple, feel-good ways you can bring more movement into your life. What workouts light you up?Start there. At the end of the day, your fitness routine isn‚t going to stick unless you actually enjoy it.
  1. Fuel Your Body
Once you find a routine that feels good for you, you‚ll want to make sure you‚re fueling your body properly. Invest in a reusable water bottle to remind yourself to stay hydrated, eat energizing snacks (like these Chocolate Coconut Power Bites), and look into supplements for your unique needs. Want an extra boost? Our Maximum Vibrance plant-based superfood powder packs an energizing punch ‚ loaded with antioxidants, fiber and 20g of plant protein. Add a scoop to your smoothies for a healthy pre or post-workout snack!
  1. Go Digital
One pandemic plus: digital options are endless(and that includes your workouts). Check in with your favorite local studio to see if they‚re offering virtual workouts or take advantage of the dozens of options online ‚ from YouTube yoga to digital spin. Get started with a free app like FitOn‚ providing unlimited access to a variety of workouts with celebrity trainers ‚ from HIIT and kickboxing to barre and yoga!
  1. Set Up Your Fitness Space
If you‚re missing your gym or boutique group fitness studio, why not recreate the environment at home? Dedicate a space in your home just for your workouts and deck it out with complementary props and d©cor. For instance, if you‚re missing your yoga studio‚s zen vibe, incorporate plants, essential oils, drapery and candles into your home. Your environment will make a huge difference in your mood (and your workout).
  1. Find a Workout Buddy
Missing the camaraderie of in-person fitness classes? Find yourself a workout buddy! Text each other to stay motivated, take live digital classes together or go on a walk outside on a nice day. You can sweat it out together‚and stay socially distant. Win, win! How will you be moving your body this winter? Tag us @VibrantHealth on social media to share!
