Tip 1. Dress for cold weather hiking success.

Even if it’s just late fall or early winter where you’re going and you hear nothing but positive weather forecasts, be prepared for sudden weather changes anyway.

Winter safety is cool fun

In snow or on ice, the first thing to remember is that the surfaces are slippery. Slippery conditions can cause you to go much faster on skis and ice skates than you are skilled for, creating a potential for serious injury. Be sure to take lessons before you try out your skis or skates. Lessons will teach you how to control your speed, how to turn safely, and, most important, how to stop before running into a tree or rock. Even if you have already taken lessons, a refresher course might be just what you need to keep safe this winter.

Keeping Warm

While participating in outdoor winter activities, it’s important to keep your body warm. Your clothes must protect your body against the danger of hypothermia and frostbite. Hypothermia is a serious condition that causes your body to lose heat and not be able to restore it. Symptoms include slurred speech, loss of coordination, disorientation, and intense shivering. If your body temperature goes below 95 [degrees] F, you’ll need medical attention right away.

Watch the outdoor temperature and the wind chill index. The windier it is, the colder it will feel to your body. If you get wet from melting snow, moisture in the air, or even our own sweat be aware of the possibility of hypothermia. Wear waterproof clothing when possible. If you get wet, go indoors and change clothes. Wear several layers of lightweight clothing instead of one thick layer. As you exercise and your body warms up, you can remove a layer of clothing to keep your clothes from becoming wet with sweat. Take along some snacks. Eating helps your body keep warm and gives you energy to keep moving.

It’s time to take to the hills

Taking a hike through the wilderness may look like a simple, carefree pastime. But experienced hikers and backpackers will tell you that hiking involves more than just putting one foot in front of the other. You need stamina and know-how to safely navigate your way up a mountainous trail. The good news is that hiking skills are easy to master, and well worth the time to learn.

Hiking is a fun way to build endurance and strengthen muscles. Scrambling up and down hillsides with a backpack can burn twice as many calories as moderate walking, while working most of your major muscle groups. Hiking also leads to better cardiovascular fitness by increasing your heart and lung capacity. It even works wonders for your mind and your mood.

Prepare Yourself

If you don’t already do some form of regular aerobic exercise–any activity that makes you pant and sweat a little for at least 20 minutes a day–start exercising before you take up hiking. A brisk walk around your neighborhood for 30 minutes four or five times a week for three weeks should be enough to prepare you for a moderate hike. If you plan to carry a 20-pound pack on your back, you’ll want to increase your workouts.

Sports safety equipment may save your day

When it comes to sports and gamoidaying, saving face can mean more than covering up for an embarrassment. it can literally mean “saving your face.” How? By using the correct safety equipment.

Baseball Smarts

It’s a fact: Early professional baseball players did not wear mitts. How would you like to catch a Roger Clemens fastball with your bare hand?

Even later, the first batting helmets (plastic baseball caps) appeared. Now, helmets have a padded inner liner and the addbaseball helmet face guarded protection of padded earflaps. Some even have a clear plastic face guard.

To prevent facial injuries, many pediatricians endorse the face guard. Baseballs and softballs combined cause about 170,000 facial injuries a year to young players ages 5 to 14.

Helmet Hints for Cycling

Did you know that American cyclists were some of the first to wear helmets during professional races? Many European cyclists ridiculed the helmet-wearing Yankees. But now, it’s hard to find any cyclist not wearing a helmet.

Hard-shell helmets provide the best protection. The plastic shell spreads the impact over the entire helmet and lessens the shock to the head.

Find a helmet that has an adjustable inner liner. Use the extra pads and adjust the chin strap to create a custom fit.

Whatever helmet you buy, find one that has a SNELL (Snell Memorial Foundation Standard) or ANSI (American National Standards Institute) sticker. This means the helmet has been tested and will provide adequate protection for your noggin.

Recreational sports: another name for fun and fitness

When we hear the word sports, we often think of the “Big Three” — football, basketball, and baseball. But sports also include other activities, of course, that we can do for fun and to use our leisure time. These are what are called recreational sports, designed to be less competitive, to provide leisure, to not require a high level of fitness–and yet be very relaxing.

Most of us get tired as we go about our normal daily routine, and we need rest and sleep. However, at the end of a day of school or work, we can relax and even recuperate by doing something different from what we have been doing. Enter recreational sports, which are as varied as golf, bowling, skating, dancing, and table tennis.

Taking a Swing at Golf

The game of gold originated in Scotland in the early 14th century. Today, it is a game that people of all ages can participate in. It offers a chance to be together with friends in the open air and is good exercise without too much exertion, since it can be played at a leisurely pace. The concentration necessary to play the game properly can serve as a way to manage the stress and strains of present-day life. As people play a round of golf, they can experience the outdoors, breathe fresh air, and walk several miles to complete an 18-hole round.

Bowled Over

The recreational sport of bowling dates back more than 7,000 years. The modern game of bowling was originally called tenpins. One of bowling’s great advantages is the fact that it is an indoor activity that can be played any time of the year.
