Workout in a Winter Wonderland

November 16, 2017

With winter weather creeping up on us, it can be hard to find the motivation to get out of your turkey trance and work off all of the holiday treats you just gorged yourself with. Thankfully there are plenty of workouts you can do from the comfort of the warm and cozy indoors, and plenty of gyms and studios in the metro area in which to do them! Here’s a list of our favorite winter weather workouts and some of the best places in Jackson to get your post-Thanksgiving sweat on.

Y O G A / P I L A T E S


Shorter days, colder weather and a busy holiday season can make us all feel the need for a little mindfulness. Yoga is the perfect workout for those who want to exercise both body and mind and escape from the dreariness of winter. Experienced yogis can easily enjoy a yoga session from the comfort of their own home, but there are plenty of studios in the area for the less experienced or those who just enjoy a group workout. If you’re especially cold natured, you could even try a hot yoga class!

Inspired to take up ballet by the upcoming performances of The Nutcracker in the metro area? You should try out a barre class! Barre-based exercise classes use a combination of ballet-inspired postures as well as positions from yoga and Pilates (using the barre as a prop for balance) to target specific muscle groups.

If you’re looking for a more of a challenge in your winter workouts, look no further than CrossFit. The official CrossFit website defines the fitness regimen as “constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity.” It is a strength and conditioning program that consists mainly of a mix of aerobics, calisthenics and weightlifting – perfect for quickly working off that extra winter weight! You can practice CrossFit on your own, but you shouldn’t have any trouble finding an affiliated gym near you in the metro area.
