Chilly temps outside may cause us to want to stay cozy by the fire, Green Apple Active’s 100% organic bamboo fabric makes it easy to fight the urge to hibernate with cold weather conquering styles and natural fabric properties. To stay healthy it's important to be active through all four seasons, and luckily exercising in the cold burns more calories. Cold air forces your body to work harder just to stay warm resulting in a slightly higher basal metabolic rate (that's how many calories you burn just by existing, without expending any energy). But you do need to take a few extra precautions to avoid cold weather discomfort. Aside from the obvious precautions of wearing a hat, scarf and gloves, follow these Green Apple Active tips to choosing a great outfit for cold weather workouts.
Layer wisely Layer with super breathable and soft Eco-friendly Green Apple Active bamboo fabric to combat the cold smartly.
Wear breathable fabrics Choose breathable fabrics to avoid sweat build-up that makes you feel colder. Green Apple Actives 100% organic bamboo fabric is a good choice as it wicks away moisture and perspiration from the body 3-4 times faster than cotton!
Check the thermometer Inherent in Green Apples organic bamboo fabric is Thermo regulation. Bamboo is naturally thermal regulating, keeping the body warmer in colder climates, and cooler in warmer environments. If you're properly dressed, it's safe to exercise if the temperature is as low as 20 degrees, even with a 30 mph wind, according to the National Safety Council. Danger to exposed skin occurs when the wind chill factor falls below minus 20 degrees.
Protect your skin Wear sunscreen, especially if you exercise near snow, which reflects sunlight. Even though the sun isn't beating down on you with heat, it can still cause sunburn.
