As much as we love outdoor workouts, the truth is they’re just not as feasible as we approach the colder months. Some of us may think about investing in a gym membership or attending different workout classes, but for those days when you can’t quite make it to the gym, having a go-to home workout comes in handy. Try these indoor workouts when the weather turns cold so you never miss a beat. Pump up the jams, grab your mat, throw on your cutest workout clothes, and let’s get started!

Here, we have Handstand Trainer, Brianna R. break down boxing moves you can do on your own.

Biceps + Triceps
A lot of the time, arms are overlooked. Thankfully, Trainer Karyl Sands is here to show us a workout that is designed to lean out and develop stronger arms! Here’s what you’ll need for this awesome workout: Thera-Band (light, medium, or heavy), set of dumbbells ranging from 5-8lb, and a long band with or without handles. Easy!
High Intensity Training
If you’re looking for a program to take you through the cold weather months, give Kayla Itsines’ workouts a try. The 12 week BBG program is a combination of 27 minute high intensity workouts and light cardio for a one time fee that’s cheaper than most gym memberships. Plus, if you stick with it, you’ll see major results.
While most of us are trying to squeeze in a workout in the shortest time possible, it’s so important to make sure that we are taking time to stretch both before and after. Stretching not only releases tension and allows the body to move more freely, but also gives you nice lean and long muscles. Ensure you do so consistently and thank yourself later.
