5 TIPS TO FAIL PROOF YOUR FALL WORKOUTS

TIP #1: Get your workout done first
This will ensure that you get a workout in rather than skipping it.

TIP #2: Prepare for the changing weather
Keep some exercise DVDs, resistance bands or free weights handy for those cold snow days.

TIP # 3: Curb your carbs
Try to focus on your protein intake and keep healthy snacks available so you don’t carb load.

TIP #4: Don’t get stuck in the big baggy sweatshirt  club
Invest in a good thermal or yoga pants-there’s nothing like looking good and being warm.

TIP #5: Take Advantage of the beautiful scenery and exercise outside
Physical activity outside is good for the soul and the heart. Get outside for a run, hike, bike ride, or kayaking.
