Warmer, sunny days are finally here — which means you’re more likely to take your workout outdoors. Only, during a hot and humid day, running, biking, hiking, even walking can feel overwhelming. So, we’ve compiled a list of tips to help you get summertime fine in the heat – safely!

Invest in lightweight, breathable gear: Wicking clothes are a must! By absorbing moisture from your body, the fabric allows you to feel cooler and refreshed.

Drink up: Staying hydrated will help prevent some of the symptoms you may experience while exercising in the heat and humidity, such as dizziness, stomach cramps and headaches.

Be flexible: No one said you have to exercise during peak heat hours. Keep an eye on good ole mother nature and hit the trail during low-temp hours – such as early morning or dusk.
