Exercise Tips For Training In The Winter: Plus Snow Returns To Houston


Dude, I can’t believe the weather guys/gals finally got something right, with this unpredictable weather in Southeast Texas. When someone says the word “snow” in Texas, the most you’ll get out of us is a cynical laugh. However, after a 2 year hiatus, snow returned to the Lone Star State.

I can can see how some of my fellow warriors in colder climates may not have the motivation to get up and go train. However, don’t let a little something like snow, keep you from making big gains & reaching big goals.

Check out this video, as I give you a few ideas on training in the winter months, avoiding hibernation weight gain, and totally get amped up on the return of snow to H-town! Be sure to check out my lyrical/vocal homage to the snow, at the beginning of the video. It should clear up any confusion as to why I am the “Peoples Fit Coach,” and not the next winner of “American Idol.”

I know you guys/ladies are hardcore, and live in a “punk-free” zone. So tell us, in the comment section below, how you stay fit during the cold winter months.

  • Rows can be killer, and their benefits are often overlooked. Nice.

    Since I'm in the midwest with lots of snow, on the days that I can't make it to the gym, I'll get on the treadmill, pop in a dvd, do weights, etc. It is also a good break from the gym so I do not get bored.

    Since I'm in the midwest and get plenty of snow, on the days I can't make it to the gym I will pop in an exercise dvd, run on the treadmill, do weights, etc. It's a good change of pace from the gym too.
