We adore autumn for its crisp air, its breath-taking color transformations and the all-around cozy vibe it offers us. It’s a time for going back to work or school, setting new goals and slowly but surely getting ready for winter and its holidays. Long gone are the days in which exercising came with gallons of sweat and stuffiness, but also are the days in which we could enjoy the gleaming sun while jogging in the park. For some fitness-goers the end of summer is a disappointment due to the lack of fresh air, but for others it is an opportunity to push in more exercise time indoors. If you are in a lack of inspiration for kinds of exercises you can carry out during rainy days, we have some ideas that you can try out anytime.
While you can’t run outside right now, you can still get your legs and arms moving with the help of a treadmill. Whether you choose to purchase a treadmill for your home or you decide to go to the gym, this can be an amazing solution for those chilly days with rain.
2. Group Class
A fantastic alternative to individual exercise outside is to take up a new and exciting group class. With so many options available at gyms, it is impossible to not find a group activity that you will fully enjoy. You can choose from classes like Zumba, rebound, Pilates, aerobics, dance or even martial arts, if you are up to a challenge.
3. Indoor Team Sport
Take group activities to the next level by trying an indoor team sport. Like in the case of group classes, there are a great number of team sports you can choose from to play indoors. Just a few examples are basketball, volleyball, tennis or soccer. You can test out several different sports and see which one you like the most.
4. Work those Abs
If you want to adopt a “they see me rollin’, they hatin’” state of mind, your side kick should definitely be an ab roller or, better yet, an ab wheel. Push your way through the body of your dreams even when it’s pouring outside from the comfort of your own home.
5. Indoor Swimming
For the guy or gal who can’t stay out of water no matter what season it is, indoor swimming is also a fun option for not so friendly weather. You can go to your local indoor swimming pool and do as many laps as you desire, while not putting your health at risk by staying outside on rainy days.
6. Jumping Rope
We are certain that almost all health experts agree on the fact that jumping rope is an awesome form of workout, no matter what season you are in. You are putting countless muscle groups to the test while reliving all of the playful moments of your childhood. The only difference is that this time you are boosting the experience with the ultimate dose of motivation, determination and perseverance. As a plus, you can totally do this inside on rainy days without the weather affecting whether you can exercise or not!
