Cold Weather Workouts

Too chilly for tennis?

Have a blast while getting fit this winter with fun calorie scorchers like snowball fights, sledding, skiing and ice skating—and wave a mittened hand goodbye to as many as 500 calories per hour.

Once indoors, nothing may sound better than a steaming mug of hot cocoa, but don’t forget to sip water, even if you don’t feel thirsty. Research shows we lose water in the winter just from breathing and by working harder under the weight of extra clothing.
