Most fitness enthusiasts tend to change their workout routine—and their wardrobe—with the seasons. The warm summer days are behind us, and it’s time to change your bike shorts and sports bras for warmer and more comforting activewear by following this brief guide.

Dress in Layers

Dressing in layers is the no. 1 rule for outdoor workouts in the fall. Layers do a great job trapping air, serving as a good insulator. Your body temperature will increase during your workout, so it comes in handy to have a layer that you can easily take off and put back on once you’re done with your workout.


Stay Warm and Dry

The main purpose of wearing layers is to stay warm and dry while working out in the fall. Rain and wind can be an issue, but you can protect yourself by wearing wind and rain-repellent materials as your final layer.

Full Protection

You won’t have to implement many changes in your outdoor routine before late fall when the weather becomes much colder. Once that happens, you should also consider properly protecting your head, feet, and hands so you wouldn’t catch a cold during your runs.
