Winter Workout tips

If you want to have a great body when springtime rolls around sticking with a good workout program during the winter months is critically important. But when it’s cold and wet outside ourselves to the gym seems that much more difficult. The Garmin blog has a great post with some excellent tips to help you stick with your workouts through the winter months you can read it here.

Another great way to keep yourself motivated is to create a workout calendar ahead of time and set both weekly and monthly goals for yourself.

Getting a fitness magazine and cutting out a photo or two of what your body is going to look like is another great idea. you can tape the photo up in your bathroom for inspiration. 

Rewarding yourself after a great workout is a good way to apply a little pavlovian conditioning. If you own a juicer a fresh juice can make a great reward.

Hands down the most effective way to keep yourself going to the gym is to find a good workout partner who will not let you off the hook on those days you are feeling less than motivated.

Different Style of Juicers

There are literally hundreds of different styles of juicers on the market today and many are designed for different types of juicing. If you are planning on juicing mostly fruit then a centrifugal style juicer is the way to go. But if you want the ability to juice leafy greens and wheat grass then you will need a more specialized masticating style juicer (also sometimes referred to as a single gear juicer).

Here is an image of a standard Omega Centrifuge Juicer used for juicing fruit.
