The temperatures are dropping and your motivation is dwindeling… does this sound familiar? Finding enough motivation to workout during winter can be tough, but it doesn’t have to be.
We believe that having the right gear will help you to regain the motivation lost as the weather cools down.
“There’s no such thing as bad weather, there are just bad clothing choices,” says Monica from Core Merino. “If you have the right exercise gear, then a winter morning’s crisp fresh air becomes something you look forward too – it’s invigorating and makes winter exercise a breeze.
Merino wool is the perfect material for winter, it is baby soft and helps regulate your body temperature while you sweat. It can absorb up to 30 percent of its weight in moisture without feeling wet or clammy. So, even if the rain is pounding down on you, you’ll feel more comfortable and protected against the elements.
