Many people new to exercising in cold weather dress in bulky and overly warm winter jackets. Instead opt for three layers once the mercury dips: For the base layer (next to the skin) choose a thin wicking material like polypropylene. (No cotton please!) Next comes the insulating layer, a good fleece or wool, loose enough to trap air between layers but not restrictive.

To avoid and reduce injuries this summer:
>> Be sure to warm up/stretch as you would before any physical activity.
>> Wear gardening gloves (to reduce blisters) and kneepads, or use a foam cushion to make it more comfortable and less traumatic for knees.
