What Dr. Secor Can Say in an Interview on
Exercising Safely Outdoors:
When it comes to Great Outdoors, we just need to be mindful that when engaging in any fitness exercises outside, there is a greater risk of getting hurt. Practicing the following advice will allow you to do so safely and happily:
- Wear sunscreen!
- Be well hydrated (before, during, and after).
- Watch out for insects, ticks, etc. Consider wearing insect repellant.
- Avoid overheating (especially if you are used to exercising in an air-conditioned gym/space).
- If jogging or cycling, be careful of cars and other hazards. Seek out designated walking and/or bike paths, or at the very least roads with a wide breakdown lane/bike path area.
- Wear a helmet if cycling even on a bike path.
- Wear bright-colored clothing and consider a flashing light on your helmet or bike.
- Avoid exercising alone, especially at night.
- Consider carrying pepper spray or a whistle if exercising alone.
- Avoid exercising in a remote area, especially if female.
- Consider working out with a friend.
- Seek flat, firm, well-maintained surfaces for running, jogging, walking, or biking.
Following the tips above will save you from danger, injury, pain, and a trip to the doctor’s office. Happy Exercising! 🙂
