Start Your Day Early
Bozeman, Montana resident Melissa Moran doesn’t let temperatures in the teens or dark skies deter her early morning workout. She goes to spin class at 5:30 a.m. three days per week in the winter, no matter how cold it is outside. “My mental clarity is simply better after an early morning workout. I don’t care how cold it is (outside),” she says. “I went to an afternoon class last week and it just wasn’t the same. When I work out in the morning, I’m more focused throughout the day—on what I eat, etc. It gets me on a routine and a schedule that I can follow.” All of this, she says, ultimately makes her a happier, better mom and wife—which, if nothing else, just might be the only motivation we all need to get ourselves out of bed on the darkest winter days. Here’s how to stay safe in the coldest of temps.
