I get it: winter seems long, cold and dreary, so the last thing you may want to do is get active this season. And although it’s easy to become a couch potato and watch Netflix until spring, it’s definitely not the best for your health! Below are some great ways to stay active this winter in Mississauga.
Take a Hike
With over 480 parks and 295km of trails and woodlands in Mississauga, there’s always somewhere new to explore!
Although most people think of the warmer months as a time to explore nature, winter is a great time, too! Just remember to bundle up and bring a thermos of coffee (or hot chocolate for the kids) along with you on the hike.
Register for a Program at a Local Rec Centre
We’re lucky: here in Mississauga, we have plenty of community centres to choose from that offer programs to residents of all ages.
Whatever the interests of you or your family are (with swimming, dance, and fitness being just a few), you’re bound to find a nearby centre that offers affordable classes and programs.
Lace Up Your Skates
Check out one of the city’s many arenas to find an ice time that works with your schedule. For extra fun, find an outdoor rink that allows you to admire the beauty of this season! The rink located at Celebration Square is the city’s largest outdoor rink. With a season lasting until mid-March, there’s still plenty of time to enjoy this fun opportunity!
Join a Local Gym or Fitness Studio
Want to get fit without getting cold? Winter is a great time to join a local gym or fitness studio. Whatever you want – weights, cardio, yoga, etc. – you’re bound to find a facility that offers it in Mississauga.
Joining a gym now means that you will have a new body to show off when the warmer weather arrives!
Visit an Indoor Attraction or Amusement Centre
Winter is the perfect season to check out those indoor attractions that you’ve been meaning to but never get around to when the warmer weather arrives! With 30+ indoor family attractions ranging from indoor playgrounds, laser tags, escape rooms, it’s easy to stay active…even when inclement weather is here!
Enjoy a Short Term Rental’s Gym and Pool Facilities
Another great way to stay active is to enjoy the gym and pool facilities found in a short term rental!
At Platinum Suites, a state of the art gym and indoor swimming pool with sauna and Jacuzzi are only some of the many services and features guests enjoy when staying overnight. For the best-furnished apartments in Mississauga, contact Platinum Suites today.
