5 At-Home Snow Day Workouts

By. Coach Ant Lucic




The trains aren’t running on schedule, the sidewalks haven’t been cleared, your favorite corner deli isn’t even open… Snow days in NYC can be a real bummer. Often during snow days, we close our classes to allow for time to clear the snow and to avoid athletes traveling unnecessarily in dangerous snow conditions. After all, a 10-minute workout isn’t worth the risk of spinning out on the highway or slipping on the walk in, and besides, who wants to deal with parking when cabs and snow piles are taking up all the spots.

If you’re itching for a workout, and are at a loss for ideas try one of these 5 workouts at home, or if you’re a little stir crazy, ALL OF THEM.

Christmas Week 2010

Nothing worse than a badly timed storm to ruin all your holiday travel plans. Over 7,000 flights were canceled from Dec. 26-27 of 2010, ruining everyone’s holiday plans. Buses were abandoned on snow-filled NYC streets and subway passengers were stranded for up to nine hours.
