Outdoor Exercise Safety Tips

As we move into summer, many will want to exercise outdoors to stay active and get some fresh air. That’s great news, as experts recommend at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity each week. Working out in hot and humid weather can put extra stress on your body; however, there are simple precautions you can take to protect yourself.
  • Avoid the hottest part of the day.
  • Wear light-colored clothing. 
  • Apply sunscreen. 
  • Stay hydrated with water.
  • Replenish your electrolytes. 
  • Listen to your body.
