Kickstart your fitness regime this winter!


Delhi has just got the taste of cold and as winter has started we suddenly see a drop in the exercise participation and drop in the gym membership renewal.
As we dig deep into the reason behind the lethargy during winters, we see that during winters your body burns a lot of calories and metabolism rises to manage the normal core temperature of your body, this is why you shiver whenever you feel cold. It is the way of body to produce heat and manage in the cold temperature.
The lethargy is the body’s way to save calories for heat production later and also your muscles, ligaments and tendons are also stiff compared to summers. This generates a feeling of lethargy to the human body.
