When it’s wet and soppy outside, there seems to be less incentive to get up and go for a stroll. That makes sense. No one wants to get soaking wet. But sometimes the rain makes it easier to get yourself to the gym, a fitness class or to stay inside and workout on your own or with a video.

When you’re looking for a little variety, hit up your local library for a fitness video. You can try something for free and see if you like it. You can usually grab a Pilates video from the library and save yourself over $20–the cost of purchasing the DVD. It’s a great way to change it up, since watching the same video over and over can start to feel a little boring.

There’s never a good excuse not to exercise. Whether it’s raining or the sun is shinning, try your best to get in your fitness routine. You’ll feel better for it in the long run.
