Winter Workout: 5 Ways to Motivate Yourself

The temperature is unforgiving, so it’s no surprise that you do not feel motivated to engage in a winter workout.

Yet, you shouldn’t let the winter temperatures discourage you; here are a few ways to go about it.

Sleep early

The simple logic is this: When you are well-rested, you will find it easier to get up in the morning. Plan your bedtime and stick to it.

Keep your phone far from your bed

This is necessary for two reasons. One: You will not be tempted to increase your screen time and stay up late into the night. Two: If you set the alarm, you will need to get up and walk to turn it off. And once you are up that way, it’s hard to crawl back into bed.



Lay everything out before you go to bed. Put all the kit you need in one place, so you are not fumbling here and there in the morning trying to put things together.

Get a workout buddy

Get someone to hold you accountable. Having someone to exercise with frequently keeps you in check. You will not remain under your duvet when you know someone is out early waiting for you.

Think of the post-workout feeling

Though it may seem much more comfortable to stay in bed, you’d most likely never regret that decision to sacrifice some hours of sleep for that early morning workout. Think of how much better you’ll feel after the winter workout—and how much worse you might feel if you don’t.

Remember, summer bodies are built in winter! Are you going to try again tomorrow?
