    In some places, winter is long. And cold. And gray. But this is not the case at Sterling Ranch, the gem of Northwest Douglas County in Colorado. With 300+ days of sunshine, it’s not unusual to wake up here and find snow carpeting the earth, then go about your life under a vibrant blue sky and see the ground again by midday. The crisp air is invigorating and the sun is bright and inviting. These conditions help bolster a year-round lifestyle of wellness for residents, and with so much to do in and around the community, it’s easy to stay fit throughout the winter months.

    Keep moving all winter long

    When the days are shorter and the temperatures cooler, it’s natural to want to hunker down for the season, but it’s important to stay active in whatever way brings you joy — it’s good for your muscles and bones, your heart and your psyche. In short, it’s important for your overall wellness. Here are some ideas to help you keep moving all winter long:

    Stay involved

    The robust event calendar at Sterling Ranch is full of activities designed to bring residents together and to bring them joy. For social gatherings, the Sterling Center is a hotspot. For fitness opportunities and festivities, look no further than the Overlook Clubhouse, our rec center where you’ll find wellness-enhancing options such as:

    • State-of-the-art fitness center,
    • Dance classes,
    • Strength-training classes and
    • Yoga.

    Boost your heart rate

    A brisk walk on the community’s internal trails or the extensive system nearby is a perfect way to get fresh air and get your heart pumping. With the right clothing (and equipment, if necessary), the options for this activity are endless. Walking can be done anywhere. You can take a stroll with Fido; with visitors; with neighbors, friends or family . . . with anybody! Have a book club? Discuss the story out on the trail. Catching up with an old friend over the phone? Get up to speed on each others’ lives from the trail. Or maybe a solo walk can provide you the space needed for quiet reflection.

    Connect with nature

    It’s no secret that Colorado is a wonderland of opportunity for spectacular scenery and snow-based activities. Here’s a list of unique activities that promote a connection to the outdoors:

    Find a space

    It doesn’t get much closer to home than, well, home. When the snowflakes are falling and leaving the house is not at the top of your list, this is the time the flex space in a new home comes in handy. Stash a yoga mat and elastic band in the closet for easy access to equipment, or go all out and commit by investing in a treadmill and weights and set up the customized home gym of your dreams in your optional finished basement.
