As the season changes, your workouts will naturally need to adjust too. Here are a few tips on how to adjust your workout routine as the weather gets cooler. In fact, here are my top 4 tips for cold weather workouts.
- Layers-This may sound simple but many people dress too warmly and overheat while working out in cold weather. You want to stay warm during your exercise warm up but be able to peel off layers as your body heat rises. This will enable you to have more energy to exercise rather than experiencing fatigue due to overheating.
- Safety Gear-The days are getting shorter so your morning and evening workouts may be taking place in the dark. If you are outdoors, be sure to wear bright colors and outerwear with reflective inserts.
- Switch it up! The change of seasons is a great time to switch up your workout. This challenges your body in new ways and allows you to accommodate the changing weather. Have you tried my Visibly Fit in 84 Days challenge yet? Or maybe you want to jump into the 6-week Walk it Off Now Challenge. It begins in just a few days. Don’t miss it.
- Stay hydrated. You may not notice it as much in cold weather, but you do still sweat and you need to replenish fluids. So, drink your water often.
Here’s to a great Fall and great Fall workouts!
