Exercise - dress appropriately

Dressing appropriately is important when exercising in cold weather. Here are some tips to consider:

  • Wear several layers, including gloves and a hat. Remove layers when you warm up, and replace them during the slower portions of your workout.
  • If it is snowing or icy, be extra careful to not fall.
  • Remember, you can still become dehydrated in cold weather, you still need plenty of fluid before, during, and after exercise.
