Workout routine in the winter can be more difficult that in the warmer months. If you are going to start a workout program to lose weight in the fall or in the summer, it would be more challenging to lose weight in the fall depending on where you live, than in the summer. For example, living in North Dakota would be more difficult for most people to stay focused, do their workouts and lose weight than if they lived in say Southern Florida or California.
Lets face it, you can never be too fit and when you live in a warmer climate your body is more acclimated to becoming physically active easier and quicker than if you were living in a colder climate. Or even when the seasons change you get ups and downs in your motivation to complete your basic workout routine. Take your car for example; on a 80 degree day you can start it up and take off in a minute or so, but you would not be able to take of that quickly after started it in 20 degree weather. You would have to warm it up and raise the internal temperature of the vehicle first; the same thing goes for your body when you try to exercise in colder weather. It takes more time to get warmed up and to be in the mood to exercise. So you have to be mentally and physically committed to your workout routines. You must really have the motivation and drive necessary in order to lose weight and exercise the way you need to, or else the change in the seasons and in the temperature can really be a bummer if you don’t prepare and stay motivated.
