If you live where the temperature drops below 40 degrees, you know how difficult staying active in cold weather can be. It's important to keep our bodies moving year-round. This week, I am sharing some fun activities you can try to out to stay active during these winter months.

Snow Shoeing and Winter Hiking

Snow shoeing is a great low impact activity. Even if you are just getting started on your fitness journey, this would be a great activity to try out this winter. Hiking the local trails during the winter is also a great way to enjoy nature. Be sure to check the trails, temperature and have the right gear with you. Here is an article from National Park Service with winter hiking tips.
