Want to get fit but not sure how to do it safely? These tips from Christine Armarego will have you pulling on your sneakers, pronto!
Check your blood glucose levels (BGLs) before you start.
Stay hydrated. If you are dehydrated before and during your workout, you’ll find it harder to maintain your BGLs.
Wear the right gear. Whether it’s well-fitted footwear or breathable fabrics, having the right outfit helps prevent injury and overheating.
Keep your exercise space clear of obstacles so you don’t trip over.
Listen to your body. It’s essential to challenge yourself but if you need a short break then rest.
Stop at the first signs of a hypo.
