Spring Exercise Tip: Wear Layers

I know now that it's officially Spring, you're getting all excited to enjoy exercising outside. Maybe you recently set a goal to run outside or you just got your bike tuned up, and now you're ready to sweat in the fresh air.

Before heading out you want to make sure you're dressed properly in layers.
Even though the sun is shining and the snow's all gone, you don't want to sport just your new running skirt and wicking sports bra just yet.

The air is still a little chilly, and if you sweat, you don't want your clothes and skin to get wet and make you cold. You want to wear lightweight layers made out of some kind of wicking material that will pull any moisture away from your skin. Wear a few layers so you'll stay warm, and if you get too hot, you can easily peel off a shirt or two and tie them around your waist.

Fit's Tips: Get yourself a short sleeve and long-sleeve shirt to wear such as ones like these from Patagonia. They are made of lightweight Capilene that's made to pull moisture away from your body and evaporate quickly. If you are the type of person who gets realy hot, Patagonia also makes Tank Tops made out of the same wicking material.
