No one wants to go out when it is cold and dark. Children and adults alike both stay inside more and spend more and more time in-front of computers and televisions. However, this inactivity is a growing problem in the western world, and causes less energy to be used and so people gain weight (which they then promise to lose by next year). This excess body fat will result in an increased risk of a vast number of diseases, from heart disease to diabetes, and it is important to not only ensure that you are not gaining fat, but also keeping active during winter.
