Fall isn't all pumpkin spice and apple cider, in fact, there are a lot of perks to the season. One of the best in my eyes is that it's a great time to pick up a fitness routine. It's not so hot you don't want to leave the house and it's not so cold you have to wear 4 layers. It's basically just right. With some of the busiest holidays approaching, getting or staying in a fitness routine can be the difference between gaining 20 pounds and maintaining/losing weight. Which would you prefer?
If you are looking for fall fitness tips for a routine you can stick with, you've come to the right place. Use these fall fitness tips for motivation and be sure to comment with your own tips.

Dress the part.
Fall can be chilly and breezy so make sure you're ready for it by layering appropriately. The first layer should be a moisture-wicking one so you're not getting chaffed from sweat. Next a warm layer - maybe sweats. The final layer should guard against wind and windbreakers are perfect.
Even though it's not as hot as it was in summer dehydration is still a big deal. Make sure you're drinking plenty of water throughout your fitness routine.
Fall is filled with fun things to do that can fit into any fitness routine. Get lost in a corn maze or go on a haunted trail walk. If you change-up your routine there is a higher chance that you'll stick to it.
Be ready for the time change.
If your fall fitness routine carries into the late hours of the day then you may find yourself running out of daylight. Be sure to wear reflective clothing to make yourself visible to traffic and others.
