Exercising outdoors? Stay Safe with these Tips

Exercising outdoors whether it’s jogging, walking, hiking or bike riding can provide beautiful scenery and change up a boring indoor workout routine, but it’s important to stay safe while doing so.

If you’re heading outside to work out, remember these tips from the Crime Stoppers of Atlanta. 

  • Plan your route ahead of time.
  • Let a friend or family member know where you are going and when you expect to return.
  • Carry a cell phone; if you do not have a cell phone, be aware of nearby public phones along your route.
  • Be aware of your surroundings; avoid areas where criminals may conceal themselves like alleys or tall grass.
  • Bring an exercise buddy or your dog with you.
  • Avoid wearing headphones for better awareness of your surroundings.
  • Try to stay in well-lit and populated areas.
  • Keep a safe distance from cars that ask you for directions.
  • Carry your identification with you at all times.
  • If you get an uneasy feeling, trust those instincts and leave the area to find a safe location, preferably a public area with other people.
