Keeping Fit in Winter

Keeping fit in winter can be challenging – the daylight hours are shorter, the wind is chiller and the temperatures can be near freezing. However, none of that is an excuse for neglecting your physical well-being and health. Playing golf in winter might sound a bit tough and tricky, but it is definitely feasible. You will need to invest in a good pair of winter playing gloves and wet weather gloves. Keeping your hands warm and dry is crucial for playing a quality game of golf in winter. The wet weather gloves are very practical for when it rains. The wetter they get, the firmer the grip is, and you can hold your clubs securely.

The weather will not let you play golf very often outdoors, but that is why you can use the indoor courses. Find a winter golf training program, and follow it in order to remain active, flexible, and focused during this season. You can maintain your excellent golf swing by swinging at home or at the local indoor driving range. Golf simulator are also very beneficial for golf lovers who want to keep fit in winter while enjoying their favourite sport. Whether it is cold, windy, rainy, or snowy, golf simulators allow you to play whenever you want in the comfort of a pleasant indoor climate.

Footgolf, as a combination of football and golf, might be an interesting activity that will keep you fit during winter. The aim of this sport is similar to the aim of golf – players should kick a football into a cup in as few shots as possible. It is a fact that the weather in winter will not let you enjoy outdoor grass footgolf courses. The positive aspect of this sport is that it can be played anywhere. Goal holes can be easily put wherever you want in just a few seconds thus enabling you to create your own footgolf course.

If you want to enjoy the benefits of golf without leaving the warmth and comfort of your home, then turn it into a disc golf course. Just like golf, and footgolf, this game’s aim is to put a flying disc into a target in as few throws as possible. You can order the discs and golf baskets online, or you can make them yourself – you can make disc golf baskets from big plastic bottles and use the caps as discs.

Regardless which activity you choose this winter, do not forget to continue with proper training that will keep you strong and prepared to step on the golf course once the sun starts shining bright again. Hit the gym as often as possible, work out at home to improve your cardio, and endurance, and stretch often to improve your flexibility and to prevent injury.
