New Year, New Me at Shawnee

Well folks, it’s that time again… Can you believe it’s 2016? This is the time of year when we make exceedingly ambitious goals for ourselves, which we generally give up by March. So this year, let’s be a little more realistic, shall we? Why not get in shape while having fun? Skiing is an awesome workout for your entire body and can melt away the pounds of holiday regret. So this year as you aspired to become a healthier you when the clock struck midnight, consider penciling skiing into your workout regimen. Don’t worry; I’ve already checked all the facts for you. You’re welcome. Skiing is both an aerobic and anaerobic exercise that burns 200-300 calories in 30 minutes. It improves strength, flexibility, balance, endurance, and agility. Engage your core and tone up your stomach as you glide down the mountain. Your inner and outer thighs, hamstrings, and glutes will thank you for the satisfying workout the crouching position that skiing requires. You can actually lose up to 5 pounds in a week long ski getaway with approximately 3,000 calories burned in a full day of skiing. This workout far exceeds your typical gym session. So this time, as you ring in the New Year, make a resolution that you’ll enjoy keeping and take up skiing as your newest full body workout.
