LEWES, Del. -- Winter weather tends to slow down a lot of outdoor activity but for people who want to exercise the cold is no excuse to stop.

Between the snow, ice and rain Delmarva has seen this winter, what's an avid exerciser to do when their outdoor workout routine is disrupted by the freezing elements?

For many health buffs in Sussex County, they bring their workout inside to the local gym.

"I work out an hour to two hours a day, seven days a week," said Chloye Winchester of Lewes. "If it's snowy like it is I come inside!"

Drew Love of Rehoboth has tried to work out while it's cold out but it's too much for his body to bear.

"With the colder weather I've been coming to the gym a lot," said Love.

"It's just too icy and my hands just get too cold when I'm running. Especially with the wind chill and everything, I just like to come to the gym more."

But not all of the exercisers at Club Fitness in Lewes have been forced to work out inside.

Kyle Kaminski likes to bear the frigid cold during his workout.

"The snow's on the ground so I go walk in the snow a lot," said Kaminski of Millsboro.

He said he's not bothered one bit by the snow and freezing temperatures.

"Not since I grew my beard out! It doesn't affect me, I get acclimated to it pretty quickly," he said.

For those who decide to bear the cold for a workout, health officials recommend dressing in thick layers of heavier fabrics such as wool or fleece. And always make sure to know the signs of frostbite and hypothermia before going out.
