Exercise Safety Tip: Get a Personal Alarm

I recently polled you guys about skipping workouts due to not feeling safe, and a few of you mentioned being worried about being attacked.


Again, this is not meant to be scary, but just as a way to keep everyone safe and informed about the ways to protect yourself while exercising outside. One idea is to get a personal alarm to carry with you while jogging. There are many options out there, but my favorite is the Doberman Power Button ($19.99). This safety device was designed especially for jogging since it's relatively comfortable to wear with an adjustable elastic band. Just one touch is all you need to alert others to your location with an 100-decibel alarm and bright LED lights. What's more? The flashing lights can be seen from more than 1 mile away.
