5 Ways to Stay Active During the Winter in Columbus

It’s easy to fall into a hibernation during those winter months of snow, sleet and cold. As the temperature drops, it can be harder to exercise—but with the right winter workout plan, you can still find the motivation to get fit. After all, summer bodies are made in the winter, right?

The key to getting out in the cold is pursuing activities or workouts that appeal to you. If you love what you do, you’ll find that it’s not that hard to stay encouraged and stick to your workout goals in the winter.

Here’s our winter workout guide to staying fit and healthy in Columbus!

 

Ice Skating

The good thing about ice skating is that it can be done indoors or outside on a frozen pond. Getting active on the ice can be fun and an excellent form of exercise—as skating works nearly every muscle group in the body, and gliding requires synchronized movement of the legs. Like any workout, skating is good for your cardiovascular health and it gets the blood pumping! There are plenty of ice skating rinks in Columbus to enjoy, like OhioHealth’s Ice Haus and three Chiller rinks.

 

Athletic Club

Joining a Columbus gym like the Arena District Athletic Club (ADAC) makes working out season averse. With the ability to bypass weather conditions entirely, the ADAC offers both one-on-one and group training sessions, private yoga instruction and world-class equipment. If you’re looking for something more intense, fitCAMP offers a 4-week, 16-session high intensity training program that will get your body in tip-top shape for summer.

 

Finding a workout class that you enjoy will make staying active in the winter easier and enjoyable. Located right in the heart of downtown Columbus’ Arena District, ADAC is the perfect place to start (or end) your day.

 

Hiking

Hiking during the winter is worth the extra layers—seriously. The trails are less crowded and calmer this time of year, allowing you to fully enjoy the outdoor experience. Whether it’s dry and cold or wet and snowy, the winter scenery is wholly unique. Grab your coat and a friend to explore Columbus Metro Parks, or join their annual winter hike series for guided public group outings.

 

Pilates

The winter season is a great time to experience the addicting joys of Pilates—the art of controlled movements! One of the best places in Columbus to take classes is Club Pilates in Grandview Yard. No matter your age or level of fitness, there’s a class that will work for you. Try it out and keep your body agile and flexible through the chilly weather.

 

Get Inspired

If you still need an extra kick of fitness inspiration, you’ll absolutely find it when the Arnold Sports Festival & EXPO returns to Columbus from March 5-8! More than 20K athletes from around the world will compete in 80+ events that test the limits of physical strength and endurance. Aside from attending as a spectator, there are tons of ways you can get active and participate. Use the contest below for your chance to win a pair of tickets to the 2020 Arnold Sports Festival.

Where Are the Best Places for Millennials to Live and Work?

Younger workers are likelier to seek new cities for career advancement. Here are the Top 10 metro areas based on job-relevant factors.

Article originally published in The New York Times By Michael Kolomatsky | January 23, 2020

Millennials, still in the earlier stages of their careers and less likely to be encumbered by the needs of children or spouses, may strongly consider relocation as they climb the professional ladder. But where are the best cities to work?

A new study by Commercialcafe ranked metro areas for millennials based on seven factors related to employment. For the purposes of the study, “millennials” were defined as people born between 1986 and 1995, and only metro areas with populations of at least 1 million were considered.

Each area was ranked in seven categories to determine a total score: Millennial population growth between 2014 and 2018, millennial population share, regional price parity (a cost-of-living comparison in which a score of 100 represents the national average), millennial unemployment rate, the share of millennials with employer-based health insurance, the share of working millennials with a bachelor’s degree, and average commuting time.

Metro areas in the South and Midwest scored well, aided by their lower living costs. The Raleigh, N.C., area, for example, came in below the national average on the 100-point price parity scale: 95.2. Columbus, Ohio, did even better, at 92.3.

Continue reading the main story

After all the data was crunched, Denver topped the list, with its low unemployment and high millennial population growth rate offsetting its higher cost of living (106.3 on the price parity scale) and relatively high average commuting time (28 minutes).

Below, the Top 10 places for millennial workers, based on the study, and two of the categories in which those places scored the highest.

 

1. Denver-Aurora-Lakewood, Colo.

13% millennial population growth, 2014-18 • 3% millennial unemployment rate

2. Austin-Round Rock, Texas

17% millennial population share • 40% working millennials with a bachelor’s degree

3. Raleigh, N.C.

41% working millennials with a bachelor’s degree • 2% millennial unemployment rate

4. Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, Wash.

14% millennial population growth, 2014-18

70% millennials with employer-based health insurance

5. Salt Lake City

23 minutes commuting time • 16% millennial population share

6. Columbus, Ohio

24 min. commuting time • 16% millennial population share

7. Grand Rapids-Wyoming, Mich.

22 min. commuting time • 69% millennials with employer-based health insurance

8. Nashville-Davidson-Murfreesboro-Franklin, Tenn.

11% millennial population, growth 2014-18 • 4% millennial unemployment rate

9. Portland-Vancouver-Hillsboro, Ore./Wash.

27 min. commuting time • 102 regional price parity score

10. San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, Calif.

131 regional price parity score • 40% working millennials with a bachelor’s degree
