Fit for every season

With the dip in temperatures, your everyday exercise takes a backseat. Here are some ways you can stay inspired to work out during the different months

WINTER (October-January)

Escape the winter and find your inner zen with yoga. Not only is yoga meditative, you'll build muscle by holding those tough poses, so you'll be more relaxed and toned after your winter-long practice.

An intense workout like jumping rope burns calories in a short amount of time. Jump ropes are inexpensive and light enough to pack when you travel. Just remember to wear a good pair of shock-absorbent shoes.

    Cycling indoors will help you shed pounds and firm up your legs and rear. Crank up your favourite music and start spinning. Keep the revolutions-per-minute high for an intense cardio workout.

    Circuit Training
    Fight boredom and get a full body workout by combining cardio and strength exercises. Whether you're at the gym or at home, you can easily burn calories by switching up activities. Start with a five or 10 minute workout on the treadmill, elliptical machine or bike. Then mix bicep curls, squats and back extensions into your circuit training. Repeat the routine for 30 minutes to an hour.   

    SUMMER (Febuary-May)

    Starting a workout in summer is particularly beneficial. The weather makes it possible to work out without being confined indoors. There are lots of activities you can enjoy during the time. Here are few of the best summer exercises and sports.

    Walking is not especially strenuous, but it has lots of benefits. It's great for those who cannot participate in high-impact exercise due to health considerations. It's also good for those who haven't exercised in a long time or are really out of shape.

    A step above walking, jogging is a little higher in impact and will get your heart pumping. The best time to jog is early in the morning or late in the evening.

    Playing tennis is a fun way to socialise and provides a good workout.

    Many parks have outdoor basketball courts. Getting a team together is a great way to give yourself an incentive to exercise regularly.

      Riding a bicycle is not only economical but also a good cardiovascular workout.

      One of the best things about exercising in water is that it keeps you cool. Swimming works almost every single muscle in your body. The resistance provided by the water adds to the toning benefits and a fast paced swim can really get your heart rate up.

      It is a favourite summer activity for nature lovers.

      MONSOON (June-September)

      Rain playing spoilsport? Try these regimens without the discomfort of plodding through the muck.

      Dancing can also help keep the blues away. It will encourage you to try stuff that you normally wouldn't give a shot. And it is great calorie burner.

      Climb Stairs
      Just walk or run up and down the stairs in your building. If you do five to six rounds of 15 steps, you have justified all that food you have binged on.

      Work Out At Home
      You don't need to have a state of the art gym; even basic equipment will do. If you enjoy walking, invest in a treadmill. An exercycle is also a good option.

      Do Some Chores
      Getting involved in basic household work like dusting, washing, sweeping and swabbing can help you exercise without following any particular workout pattern.
