Winter Workouts

February has brought a lot of snow to much of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions this year.  Instead of letting snow stop you from exercising, use it as part of your work out.  The following are some great winter workouts: 

Exercise Calories burned per hour *
Cross Country Skiing


Ice Skating 476
Shoveling snow 408

So, embrace the season, dress warm (see “How to Dress for Winter Workouts”), get moving and have fun doing it!
