Winter is a great time to revisit those fitness goals you made on New Year’s Eve.
With the chilly weather setting in it can be hard to find the motivation to stay physically active, especially if you normally exercise outdoors. Going to the gym can be equally as difficult if you don’t like cold mornings and find it hard to get past the dark mornings and early sunsets of winter.
But don’t despair, try a lunchtime workout instead! Lunchtime workouts are quickly becoming a popular exercise regime and it’s easy to see why. According to an article in the April 2012 edition of <a href=”http://libcatalogue.hurstville.nsw.gov.au/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/ENQ/OPAC/BIBENQ/1364954?QRY=CTIBIBPrevention Magazine, in addition to helping burn calories, a lunchtime workout can help reduce stress levels, boost your mood and lessen your risk of a winter cold.
If you haven’t tried a lunchtime workout before or want to mix up your regular lunchtime routine with something new then make sure you don’t miss our Fitness Fridays in June and July. Fitness Fridays are 45 minute lunchtime introductory exercise classes held at Hurstville Library. They are free, fun and best of all are held indoors out of the cold.
If you can’t make it to one of our classes make sure you have a look at some of our fantastic fitness resources available to borrow from the library.
