Fitness Tip: It’s getting cold outside

If you are exercising outside as well, especially as the outside temperatures drop, it is important to make sure you are prepared for the temperatures. Make sure you are staying warm but not sweating too much. Sweat can be your enemy, as it can lead to hypothermia in colder weather. Wearing moisture-wicking base layers (non-cotton, specialized polyester or wool blends) with insulating outerwear can help maintain an optimal body temperature during outdoor activities.
