Rain, Rain, Go Away
By Nazirah Jones M.S., CPT- NASM
Rainy days can bring great joy and relaxation to many people, but when it comes to those of us who train constantly, it can throw off our plans. When it rains, most people find it too problematic to get up and hit the gym. If you have goals you are trying to accomplish why would you let the rain affect you? Missing training sessions because of the rain could cause a delay in your process. Below are a few reasons why should skip the gym because of rain.
You Are Training Inside
You cannot make the excuse of “It's wet outside.” The great thing about having a gym to train in is that no matter what it looks like outside, the inside is dry.
Weather Is Cooler
We all know how hot it can get training indoors but one of the great benefits of training these days is it's a lot cooler. When it rains the temperature drops which means you won’t burn up during your training sessions.
You Have Goals
No matter what goals you have set for yourself if you skip the gym because of the rain you are ultimately letting yourself down.
Rainy Days Can be Demotivating
Rainy days can make you feel unmotivated and lazy, but a good workout can boost your mood and make you feel energized. So instead of giving in to the weather, use it as an opportunity to push yourself harder and make progress towards your goals.
Working out regularly can boost your immune system, which is especially important during the rainy season when the risk of catching a cold or flu is higher. So, don't let the rain stop you from taking care of your health.
So grab that umbrella and hit the gym!!
