The Best Way to Warm Up

The weather in New England has finally transitioned over to more chilly days than mild, and it’s only going to get colder. Such drastic changes in temps can throw off your routine. Who hasn’t woken up early to go to the gym, only to roll back over because it’s just too darn cold to get out of bed yet, much less leave the house? 

Like we talked about in last month’s newsletter, you can get that W by committing to getting out of bed and getting out there to do whatever it is you do to get and stay fit. Exercise it the best way to get yourself warmed up physically and mentally, no matter what time it is, and as always your friends at CFT are there to help you!
