How to enjoy an outdoor winter workout

Winter is here, along with the temptation to curl up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa all season long. Chilly temperatures deter many from exercising outdoors, and while some prefer to head to the gym to keep up their fitness routine, seasonal activities can also offer great full-body workouts, says TOPS Club, Inc.® (Take Off Pounds Sensibly®), the nonprofit weight-loss support organization. Consider the following activities to break out of your routine and stave off winter weight gain:

• Ski across a winter wonderland

Build up your strength while enjoying nature’s beauty. Cross-country skiing works both your upper and lower body, sculpting shoulders, arms, back, chest, abs, buttocks, and legs. Work up a refreshing sweat for more than 500 calories burned per hour.

TOPS OH 1487, Port Clinton Chapter recognizes new KOPS graduate

Juanita Larson

On Nov. 19, Juanita Larson was honored at TOPS OH1487, with achieving her KOPS, (Keep Off Pounds Sensibility) status. She reached her goal weight on Oct. 1.

Juanita said, “I have struggled with weight for several years and have always enjoyed various activities with my husband, Warren.” Two years ago Juanita was diagnosed with cancer, and her life turned upside down. She no longer had the energy to do the things Warren and she so enjoyed. The additional weight she carried hindered her recovery. After nearly dying from the treatment, Juanita decided to turn to ‘Dr. GOD’. She still has cancer, but with the encouragement of her TOPS friends and husband Warren, she is in remission and has achieved her KOPS goal.
