Trainer Tip February

February 1, 2018

  • Inner or "base" layer: This should be a snug but breathable shirt that helps wick away moisture from the skin. Synthetic fabric like "polypropylene or silk work great. Avoid cotton material; it holds on to moisture and can quickly lose its insulating powers when saturated with sweat or water.
  • Middle layer: a fleece or wool top helps provide insulation. The thickness of the middle layer depends on the temperature and intensity of your exercise. Hat and gloves/mittens for below freezing temperature may not be a bad idea!
  • Finish off your winter workout gear with a jacket that helps resist wind and water but still breathes. Gore-tex and nylon are good choices. The Northface, Mountain Hardwear, Marmot, Patagonia, and Columbia are all great easy-to-find brands.
