If you find yourself dreading your dark, cold, morning run, recruit a buddy to come along. It’s much easier to wake up and seize the day when you know someone is waiting for you. Although both of us had different workouts, and only ran together for a few miles, it was comforting to know that someone else was out there putting in the work.

I always think of the things I need to do for the day to keep me moving. I motivate myself to start the day early and get everything done right away.

Try new workout classes at the gym. They usually have tons of new classes in January to bring in new members, so it’s a good opportunity to try something new and mix it up.

Sign up for a marathon or any activity that requires you to train. That way you can't afford to be lazy. You need to push yourself.

Cold weather outside does not mean you can't exercise. You can easily workout in your very own home with just your own bodyweight. Free workouts can be found on Youtube that need no equipment.

Work should be enough motivation to get up. My boss would fire my ass if I keep skipping work. :-D

Register for a fun run, adventure race or any fitness event with a date towards the middle or end of Winter. The event slowly creeping closer will help keep you accountable to your training sessions regardless of the weather conditions. Nothing motivates quite like the pressure of an upcoming event.

I set breakfast meetings so I need to get up early. I need a reason to get out of bed on winter mornings.

I love winter. I look forward to it actually. I like to ski and snowboard so I need no motivation to get up.

I stay motivated by meditating for 10 minutes first thing every morning. I set my daily intention, such as 'passion’ or ‘focus’ or ‘exercise,’ and come back to that word several times throughout the day. When I’m not feeling motivated, I check back in for a few minutes and recall the day’s intention. That helps me get back on track.

I exercise with my wife so we both get motivated to do it together. We push each other to stay active even if we just want to sleep in.

I always think of events that I need to attend. It's motivation for me to exercise and look good. You get to meet people there so it would help to look great.

When it's cold or rainy, I need a partner to push me to get up. The buddy system works for me. I get really lazy to get up and having a partner to wake me up and motivate me to get moving helps.

I do this too. It's an effective way of stick to your routine. I need that push to get up early.

Stick to your goals. Winter isn't an excuse to skip your workouts. Staying firm to your goals would be a test of your will.

I have a home gym so I have no excuse to be lazy. I need to do my reps everyday.

Work out what you want to achieve and what times you can make available for physical activity. Write them down and then look for ways to achieve your goals. Recruiting a friend as a training partner is a great way to stay on track, regardless of the weather.
Finding a training partner will serve as an extra source of motivation and add enjoyment to your exercise routine.

My husband and I run together in the morning so we push each other to get up and get ready. We also like signing up for runs so we have something to work hard for.

I train for track no matter what the weather is. My coach is a lion so I can't afford to be late. He doesn't care what season it is and what's your excuse. Just show up.

Create a challenge. Make sure your goal is attainable, but more difficult than you think you will be able to accomplish. I wanted to run at least a mile a day for 40 days straight. As you’re going through your challenge, treat yourself to both mini-goals and mega rewards. After a long run, I would treat myself to a Jamba Juice smoothie and oatmeal. After the 40 days were done, I treated myself to a new running jacket and a tri-club membership.
