Are you getting tired of the same old workout routine? One way to shake things up is to move your exercises outdoors. Use these tips to help ensure your outdoor workout is safe and fun.

1. Monitor Hydration Levels

It is too easy to let your hydration levels dip when exercising outdoors. Sweat can be a major factor in warm temperatures, while cold, dry winter weather can also lead to dehydration. Therefore, drink plenty of water throughout your workout to avoid issues. For example, if you usually drink an entire bottle during an indoor activity, you'll need at least that much, if not more, when outside. 

2. Pay Attention to Temperatures

What starts as a mild morning can quickly turn into a sweltering afternoon. That is why you must follow weather forecasts to be prepared for the expected weather. In cold seasons. Plan to keep dry to stay warm, while warmer weather may have you researching swimming pool financing companies to feel refreshed.

3. Seek the Protection of Shade

Whenever possible, try to keep your outdoor workouts in shady areas. That can be a park pavilion, the cover of trees or even in the shadow of a building. This is especially important in hot weather, where exposure to the sun can quickly contribute to heat exhaustion. 

4. Use Situational Awareness

When you are outdoors, you are automatically more vulnerable to an assault. This is something that everyone needs to be aware of, not just women. Be mindful if someone unexpected comes into the area and what they are doing. This awareness will help minimize any confrontations you have by giving you ample opportunity to get out of the area before there is a problem.  

5. Understand Your Environment

You should also study your surroundings and get familiar with them. Are there possible hazards in the environment that could pose a danger to you? Wet surfaces, uneven ground, and obstacles like tree roots can all be problematic if you don't know they are there. 

6. Follow Traffic Patterns

Another thing to be conscious of when exercising outdoors is traffic patterns. When walking or running along the road, you want to go in the opposite direction of the cars. On the other hand, bicycles should always go along with traffic and follow the rules of the road. 

7. Bring a Friend Along

Working out isn't all about staying safe; you also want to have fun. One way to help ensure that happens is to bring a friend along. Invite someone who has similar interests and abilities so that you can challenge and encourage each other. Plus, think of all the great partner workouts you can try with a friend along. 

8. Dress in Layers

Unlike exercising in a climate-controlled gym, when you take workouts outdoors, you'll need to plan for changes in the weather. One way to do that is by wearing layers. This lets you adjust your clothing as conditions change without the need for a complete change of clothes. 

9. Always Use Sunscreen

The sun is not your friend, no matter what time of year you are outdoors. When you can't stay in the shade, make sure you apply sweatproof sunscreen to any exposed skin. It will help you avoid a nasty sunburn and limit the effects of harmful UV rays. 

10. Tell Someone Where You'll Be

Finally, tell someone you trust to check-in where you will be. This way, if you don't return on schedule, they can look for you or alert the authorities. 

Outdoor workouts can be awesome with a little extra planning. Be careful about exposure to varying temperatures and weather conditions, limit sun exposure, and practice situational awareness to help keep them safe and dun.
