Today’s Tip: Beat the heat with indoor workouts
Bringing your workout indoors is a great way to stay active when it’s too hot outside. There are no excuses not to get in your daily exercise when it comes to the weather. You can achieve similar results as you would outdoors only with different scenery.
In home walking, Wii/Wii Fit, exercise bike, treadmill, elliptical, workout DVD’s, stair climbing, jump rope, mini trampoline and going to the gym are only a few of the type of indoor workouts you can do. There are even workouts on cable TV and you can check out Exercise TV and do workouts from your computer.
I enjoy various outdoor exercises but I really enjoy indoor workouts. Working out at home is top on my list but I like going to the gym and attending various classes and using the equipment there.
When you’re outdoors in the heat, you need to be cautious not to overdo it. If you absolutely must exercise outdoors in the heat please make sure you take precautions. Here are a few quick tips:
*Wear light clothing
*Workout in the early morning hours or later in the evening when the sun goes down
*Exercise in water (pool, ocean, whatever your fancy!)
I’m not saying NOT to exercise outdoors, I’m just providing an alternative idea for when the heat is too much to handle. It’s fantastic that no matter what the weather condition, you have a place to workout.
Do you prefer indoor workouts or would you rather brave the heat and exercise outdoors?
Have a great weekend,
I definitely prefer working out at my gym. But the odd time I’ll go for a run in hot weather just to feel the heat and to sweat! Those are some great tips.

Thank you Robin! I get a rush when I workout at the gym but lately I have had to exercise at home for various reasons. Looking forward to getting back to the gym though.
