Must-Read Tips for Fall Workouts

The sunshine hours are dwindling and the temperatures are slowly starting to drop, which means just one thing: autumn is here. Pumpkin spice everything, cozy sweaters, apple-picking—there’s a lot to love about this season. But it can also interfere with your regularly scheduled workout routine. This year, stick to your routine even in the colder months with these fall workout tips.

  1. Wear warm layers. If you love to exercise outside, don’t feel like you have to stop when it gets colder. You just have to update your athletic wardrobe accordingly. Dress in warm layers of sweat-wicking fabrics, and don’t forget about cozy accessories like a hat and gloves.

  2. Drink plenty of water. Without the intense heat of the summer sun reminding you that you’re thirsty, you probably drink a little less in the winter months. But when you work out, it’s important to make sure you’re drinking adequate amounts of water. Drink at least a full water bottle for each hour you exercise, and more if you still feel thirsty.

  3. Head inside to sweat. Maybe you’re not into the idea of exercising in the crisp autumn air. That’s okay, too. Take this opportunity to expand your typical fitness routine. Try new indoor workouts, like hot yoga, barre, or spinning.
