Summer is gone, but your CORE workouts should stay!

Fall is officially here…

As the leaves begin to fall and we start to layer up it becomes more and more challenging to keep up with our daily workouts. As the weather gets cooler heavy comfort meals begin to replace our fresh salads and snuggling up by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa replaces our evening summertime after dinner walks.

Should our workouts change with the seasons?

Fall is a beautiful season and you should enjoy snuggling by the fire, but just because you are swapping the summer bikini for thick bulky sweaters does not mean you should skip out on those workouts, especially core! Yes your tummy may be hidden during this season but core strength is so important for your balance, coordination, and protecting your lower back from injuries! This is very important as we head into a season filled with snow and snow sports! A strong core will make you even stronger on the slopes!
