5 Tips to avoid the winter workout slump

1. Get outside when you can and make the most of the daylight hours. 15 mins of daylight in the morning will do wonders for your mood and sleep.

2. Refresh your winter wardrobe; there’s no better feeling than putting on some fresh active gear! Make sure you’re keeping warm and dry when you train in the winter with base layers that feature dri fit technology.

3. Set some goals! Whether it’s a 10k to get race-ready for the spring or a personal best in the gym, having something to work towards will give you the motivation to keep on going.

4. Get into a routine! Whether it’s booking your regular weekly HIIT class or meeting up for a morning jog, make sure that you nail your weekly goals.

5. Find something that you’re going to enjoy. Whether it’s boxing, dancing or flipping tyres, find something that’s going to get you off the sofa and out and about.

5 Winter tips to make your workout more enjoyable

1. Refresh your playlist. Add some old classics, new tunes and whatever other music style takes your fancy to help you get moving this winter.

2. Find an accountability partner. Organise to go for a run with a friend or train with a personal trainer.

3. Switch up your running routes and find some natural beauty spots to keep things interesting.

4. Download a training app; NTC and NRC are both free or why not try out an audio guided run or training session.

5. Set yourself monthly challenges that will keep you engaged whilst training. Whether your challenge is to complete 5 classes at your favourite studio or accumulate 50 miles on the NRC App, you’ve got this!
