It’s getting colder and, as temperatures drop, it’s tougher to get outside to walk, cycle or jog. With winter here, and as many of us remain holed up in our homes continuing to telework full-time, how do you plan to get exercise this winter?

Tell us what you’re doing to stay, or get, in shape this winter and, if you’re so inclined, include a photo of yourself in action. Email your submission to

NIH fitness instructors continue to host virtual exercise classes for all levels—from yoga to core strength, Tabata to kickboxing. Sessions are live-streamed, and archived, on R&W’s Facebook page at
