As temperatures drop and daylight becomes scarce, finding motivation to go for a jog or hit the gym is increasingly difficult. However, you can still stay in shape once Jack Frost comes a calling. The key is to find a workout you actually want to do.

For many, group fitness classes provide the excitement required to get you out of the house on cold days. As your peers work up a sweat around you, you too will feel energized. Martial arts is among the most thrilling fitness classes.

Consider joining a martial arts studio this winter to feel the motivation that comes with learning new moves in a group setting. Martial arts can be empowering and provide you with a close-knit community as you learn self-defense.
