As summer gives way to cooler temperatures, colorful leaves and the pumpkin spice craze, exercisers are encouraged to embrace a different set of rules. Fall fitness requires a little more forethought than throwing on a pair of sneakers and running out the door. With the right gear, game plan and attitude, anyone can remain active throughout autumn. Here are some tips before diving into your new routine. Fall Fitness Means New Adventures From flag football to nature hikes in the woods, some activities are just more fun when you don't have to worry about sweat getting in your way. Most sports are still in play during fall—pickup baseball games, long runs, tennis—but they might feel a little different. Participants can usually play longer and go harder with a cool breeze at their backs. There are ample ways to get moving while celebrating the season. Halloween and harvest-themed runs are a fun way to stay in shape. Picking and carving pumpkins or raking leaves (and jumping into the piles) are great ways to add some fun into your routine. Perusing farmers markets also provides opportunities to get the whole family in on the fun. As football season starts and MLB playoffs heat up, you might even be inspired to set up a pickup game of your own. Fall Fitness Means Layering Up As the activities change from summer to fall, so does the gear. Long sleeves, hats and headbands become autumnal essentials. Reflective clothing becomes increasingly important as the mornings and evenings stay darker longer. The good news is that early birds and night owls don’t have to settle for unfashionable neons or bulky layers. Nowadays, exercisers can find smart activewear that adjusts to their temperature, wicks away moisture, offers increased visibility and protects against the sun. Arctic Cool’s Instant Cooling Long Sleeve Shirts (for men and women) with Hydrofreeze X Technology helps you stay dry by dispersing moisture throughout the shirt. The four-way stretch fabric means it’s an ideal fit for any activity. And because cooler temperatures don’t always mean cloudy skies, the breathable fabric of our solid styles have an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 50. On dark mornings, Arctic Cool’s Instant Cooling Accessories provide reflective printing so others see you coming.
