Outdoor winter workout survival tips with NAIT expert

Published on January 04, 2017

Five or six months – a typical Alberta winter – is a long time to spend indoors.

As a veteran triathlete, Dr. Ken Riess does his best to brave the elements while exercising. “I can only run on the treadmill and watch Netflix for so long,” says the NAIT Personal Fitness Trainer instructor. “I like to get outside for my mind and the fresh air.”

Over the years, he’s figured out how to do that safely during the deepest (wind) chills of our darkest season. Whether you’re running, snowshoeing, skiing or hiking the winter wonderland of your local trails, Ken has tips for keeping warm while staying in shape, no remote control required.
