Choose workout clothes that are comfortable and will give you the confidence and motivation to succeed.

  • Step 5: Dress warmly in winter Dress in layers that can be removed in the winter months. Cover your ears, head, and hands from the cold.
  • Step 6: Invest in reflective material Invest in clothes with reflective material so you are visible to drivers.
