Cold Weather Training

The greater the obstacle, the greater the satisfaction – that’s the simple equation of winter training. Exercise never makes you as happy as when you can step into a hot shower with flushed cheeks after a long training session in the cold. Get out of the warm room – you won’t regret it!

However, cold, snow, icy wind or slush require certain behavioral measures so that exercising is really fun.
