When you look good, you feel good, right? Well, exercise can help lift your spirits as well, so combine the two and you’ve got a winning combination. But, don’t let winter’s cold weather stop you. New Balance’s Heatloft line will keep you warm no matter where you take your workout.
The Heatloft line features clothing for men and women that look great under a jacket and with snow pants or on its own. (The clothes are definitely a statement piece on their own, by the way.) Each item features New Balance’s proprietary NB Dry technology to wick away moisture and NB Radiant Heat technology to keep you warm and toasty. The quilted fabric has technologies built in while still remaining extremely lightweight. So, you can focus on your exercise instead of how cold you are.
Studies have shown that exercising can help boost your mood, which is especially important in the winter. The days are darker, the weather can be bleak and more people are likely to experience the “winter blues,” also known as seasonal depression.
According to a Harvard Health article, exercising in the cold could also improve your endurance. “In colder temperatures, your heart doesn’t have to work as hard, you sweat less, and expend less energy, all of which means you can exercise more efficiently,” Dr. Adam Tenforde, an assistant professor of sports medicine and rehabilitation at Harvard-affiliated Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, said in the post.
So, if you don’t belong to a gym, you can exercise at home or head outside for some fresh air and a little sunshine. Hate running? Try skiing, hiking, cycling or even going for a walk.
And if you suddenly feel inspired to get outside, check out some of the Heatloft items from New Balance below.
