The holidays can be a difficult time of year to stay fit for many people, even when you are doing your best to stay healthy. However, Southern California is not the first place you would expect to see something quite like this. This SoCal spot decides to spice things up a bit to get their community excited about the winter time and to keep people fit and healthy as well. In a recent article by Irene Ogrodnik titled, “How to Stay Fit and Healthy During the Holidays” Ogrodnik highlights the importance of getting exercise in the wintertime. She stresses the importance of staying active, even if you cannot devote as much time to fitness due to all of your winter plans.
This new scene came as a surprise to several locals. Writer Alison Goldman from “Women’s Health Mag” names ice-skating as one of the top six most fun ways to stay fit for the winter. These encouraging new ideas are attempting to help younger generations maintain lifestyles that are more active. So far, here in West Hills, CA you can find people of all ages ice-skating up until the end of the winter season. The ice skating rink is anticipating closing in the San Fernando Valley by the end of January 2015.
