As you prepare for your upcoming nuptials, don’t neglect your health and wellness in preparation for your wedding. We’ve put together a list of the three most fun ways to do bridal work outs in winter. Take advantage of the cold winter months to get your heart-rate up and prepare for the most important day of your life.

Wedding Fitness

Get fit for your Wedding

Take a class and get everyone involved. A few years ago, we heard a story from a bride with a March wedding date that got very in to Jazzercise in the weeks leading up to her wedding. While you may hear Jazzercise and instantly think of your grandmother in a leotard and leg warmers, this bride swore up and down that it was fun, she got to dance to some of most fun pop songs of the day, and it was a really good workout. In addition to being a great workout, it was something she didn’t do alone. This bride enlisted her in-town bridesmaids, her mother and future mother-in-law, and anyone else that wanted to join to come to class with her and dance their behinds off. Not only was it a fun shared experience leading up to the wedding, this bride said that she got into really great shape while grooving with her family and closest friends. Don’t be afraid to find group classes that you and your friends and family can participate in while preparing for the wedding. It’s a great to make sure everyone is relaxed and in shape.

Find an indoor pool. If you live in an area with a prominent YMCA program, you may be used to seeing ladies going to and from water aerobics classes. While we are not necessary suggesting matching bathing suits and swim caps, swimming laps at an indoor pool is a great and rigorous pre-bridal workout that you can do no matter how good or bad the weather. Consider finding a gym that offers a pool and take a dip after a long of work or wedding planning. Swimming is an especially great exercise because it encourages lean muscle tone without adding additional bulk the way lifting weights can. It’s a surefire way to make sure your arms look great on your big day. And, who knows- you may even decide that lady’s water aerobics are a perfect fit for your bridal exercise regiment.

If you like a challenge- take to the outdoors. It’s true, you may be reading this blog post in sunny Florida and thinking that the weather is great for working out outside. If that is the case, we envy you. For all of the rest of you who are suffering through winter’s depths, we feel you and sympathize. One fun way to beat the weather and get a great workout in is to find boot camps and other classes that meet outside: cold, rain, or shine. Exercise is proven to reduce stress, heighten your mood, and help you fit into your ideal wedding dress effortlessly. If you’re going through an especially stressful planning process, a really hard workout may be just what you need to power through wedding planning. If outdoor bootcamps aren’t available, you can always enlist the help of a personal trainer to really make sure you’re in shape on your wedding day.

However you decide to spend your time leading up to your wedding (and you may be too busy to even dream of getting a workout in), we wish you all the best of luck. These fun ways to do a bridal work out may help you kick some of the winter time blues. May your wedding day be the one that you have always dreamt of.
