San Diego Summer Workout Safety Tips

The summer has started and if you are like most of my San Diego personal training clients, you are looking forward to enjoying the outdoors. With the gorgeous scenery from the mountains all the way to the beach it is mighty tempting to take your exercise out of the gym and into the fresh air. It sounds exhilarating, I know, but there are also some safety precautions that you need to take if you plan on venturing out alone.

Here are a few tips for safely exercising outdoors this Summer.

1.) If you must go alone bring your phone…and some pepper spray. I know it may sound a bit over the top, but this will lessen your likelihood of becoming a victim.

2.) Go early. Try to get your workout in early in the morning during the summer as this will be the coolest time of day. The further into the afternoon you wait, the more likely you are to get heat exhaustion.

3.) Wear sunscreen. No one wants racerback tan-lines! (or worse yet, a burn!)

4.) Don’t go off the path. Stay in populated, well-marked and well-lit areas.

5.) Keep jewelry to a minimum. This will prevent muggings.

6.) Wear light or reflective color clothing.

Follow these tips for a safe San Diego summer. Always remember to stay hydrated and to dress in light-colored clothing to stay cool. Who knows, you may find yourself going for a cool off swim in the ocean!
