With the success of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, why not try out winter sports for yourself? Not only are they fun and provide you with something a bit different from the gym but they are also highly beneficial to your health as well. These five sports all make sure that you are working a sweat while having fun in the cold.
Skiing is mostly looked at as a holiday in the United Kingdom. When the winter months come we fly off to places like the Alps to hit the slopes. But there are plenty skiing spots through Britain, from skiing on mountains such as Glencoe in Scotland or using artificial slopes throughout the country. This sport uses short bursts of energy while giving a workout to your hips, hamstrings, calves, quads and feet. You can be expected to burn around 350 to 500 calories per hour when you hit the slopes.
