“Everyone handles cold weather differently, but it’s important to make sure you listen to your body and dress appropriately during outdoor winter workouts. If you aren’t sure how to dress, start with warm, light layers. Begin with a base layer with heat-regulating properties, along with a moisture wick fabric that can absorb moisture from your skin. Once you have a solid base layer, make sure your additional layers are light but have protective, breathable weaves to protect your body against harsh weather. Avoid bulky fabrics such as fleece, which allow an abundance of sweat to build up within the weave of the fabric. This can cause you to become more chilled and negatively impact your performance. Over time, you’ll determine your personal comfort zone for winter workouts.”
