Cold Weather Wardrobe Safety

Along with the fallen leaves and daylight saving change comes falling temperatures. You've begun to notice the cooler air during your outdoor runs or club/intramural practices. While you may be reaching for your hoodies and hats, there are others who opt to practice in close to freezing temperatures wearing only a T-shirt and shorts! Learn about common cold injuries and illnesses you can prevent with some tips from our head Athletic Trainer,  Alysia Henderson.

Add Gentle Cardio to your Routine

Swimming is a wonderful full body workout and a helpful option for those who want low-impact exercises that will still get your heart rate up. It is a good year round activity because it takes some of impact stress off your body while still allowing you to build endurance, muscle strength, as well as cardiovascular fitness. Reserve a lap lane with RecWell in our 50 meter or our more shallow and heated instructional pool.
