Are You Ready?

I find it very interesting that people tend to focus on getting “bathing suit ready” or in shape for “shorts and T-shirt” weather and tend to not put an emphasis on being fit year round. In fact, most people never think about being “winter ready” where here in the North East we are exposed to frigid cold weather, ice, snow and hazardous conditions.  FallOnIce-738120More than any time of year the winter month’s is where a strong emphasis on exercise should be placed to help reduce slip-and-falls on icy surfaces, injuries or even heart attacks from shoveling snow and let’s not forget added weight gain from a more sedentary life style when outdoor recreation is limited. So, ask yourself, are you ready?
