A Few Tips On Fall Fitness:

  • Be safe – Shorter days bring dark mornings and evenings, but this shouldn’t deter you from an outdoor exercise regime. Just be smart about it; wear reflective workout clothes and carry a flashlight to illuminate your path. Bike riders should invest in headlights and blinking tail lights and stay clear of heavy traffic roads. All early morning or evening exercisers should opt for designated paths or head to the local school track.
  • Take a cue from the kids – As children head back to school this season, remember that you, too, should never stop learning. Are you interested in boxing, tap dancing or even fencing? Give it a try. Ask about deals on intro classes to find out if it’s right for you, or scour daily deal sites for introductory discounts.
  • Savor fall produce for less – Grocery stores and farmers’ markets will be full of fall’s freshest produce including apples, figs, pears, pumpkins, sweet potatoes and winter squash. In-season produce is rich in flavor and cheap on your wallet.
  • Go outside – It’s fall in Central Florida, which means that the temperature will drop down a few degrees. This is your chance to go outside and enjoy the cooler weather.
  • Stick to a routine – winter is looming around the corner, which means dropping temperatures and bulkier clothing. It’s easy to put off your fitness when you have an excuse. Cut out any excuses by setting a weekly routine for yourself. It could be a run every other evening or boxing every Saturday morning.
