Exercising during the summer can be a breeze. But, when the temperature plummets, motivating yourself to get up and exercise is harder.

We've seen on social media that even celebrities whom we usually look up to for fitness inspiration can fall off the wagon at times, too.

Studies have shown that exercising in the cold can change white fat, particularly in the belly and thighs, into calorie-burning brown fat, Harvard Health Publishing reported.

According to, a drop in temperature is a good time to boost your metabolism because your body has to work harder to stay warm, which means you'll burn more fat.

So it's not worth putting your body goals on hold because you might end up regretting it.

After all, aren't summer bodies made during winter?

Therefore, we've selected three Instagram accounts that you can follow for some inspo this winter:
