Ideas for Improving Cold Weather Sessions

Encouraging participants to stay active during winter can be tricky. Caroline Roberts explores suggestions for getting things moving when the weather isn’t on your side

Picture this. It’s the middle of winter. It’s freezing and grey outside. Which sounds better: an extra hour in bed, or an early coaching session? If your answer is an extra hour in bed, then you’re not alone, and the likelihood is that your participants won’t be that cheerful about hauling themselves outside either. The solution? Sessions that prioritise getting warm and getting moving.

Whether you’ve never faced a cold weather session but want to be prepared, are considering holding sessions in winter, or would simply appreciate some fresh ideas to clarify your approach in case of unexpected bad weather, the following suggestions offer key advice on coaching during the colder months, empowering you to ensure that your participants progress, stay injury-free and are always fully engaged – however bad the weather.
