5 Rainy Day Exercise Tips


It looks like a lot of the country is going to be dealing with rain this week!  For most of us, we need it!  Here in Wichita Kansas, we got nearly 4 inches of rain this weekend but we still need 9 more to catch up! Anyway, if your caught in the rain and need to still burn some calories, here are some helpful tips!

Rainy Day Exercise Tip #1 – Hit the gym. That’s right, there’s no excuse now! It’s time to get yourself out of the rain and into the warmth of the gym where you can stay dry and get your workout in.

Rainy Day Exercise Tip #2 – Try something new. The definition of insanity is repeating the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results. Now is the time to try something new. If it’s weight loss you’re after, ask yourself, “What can I do differently that will produce the results I’m looking for?” All too often we don’t get what we’re looking because we ask ourselves the wrong questions.

Rainy Day Exercise Tip #3 – Pay it forward. The secret ingredient missing in a lot of people’s exercise lifestyle is that they don’t give. This is a universal law. When you give, you get! It’s just that simple. Invite a buddy to exercise with you. They’ll thank you and you’ll be more pumped-up and motivated to take your workout to the next level.

Rainy Day Exercise Tip #4 – Join an indoor bootcamp. Most bootcamps are outdoors, and when it’s rainy and cold outside, no matter how many times you tell yourself that it adds to the fun, soaking wet socks, cold-blue hands and convulsive shivers aren’t pretty. With an indoor bootcamp you’ve got the benefits of staying dry, plus you’re sure to get a great workout and have a good time.  Later this week I will highlight boot camps!

Rainy Day Exercise Tip #5 – Go jog in the rain. I know it’s counter to what I said in #4, but hey…jogging in the rain revitalizes you! It’s makes you feel like a kid again and you can really wash away all the negative effects of work, daily craziness, and stress. Just make sure you’ve got a nice warm shower to come home to!
