Fall is finally here! With the changes in temperature, most fitness fanatics will start moving their workouts outdoors, adding park bench climbers and other fun exercises to their regimens. There are many benefits to taking your workout beyond the gym, but it is important that the proper precautions are taken for nighttime or early morning exercises. Going the extra mile and buying reflective clothing or products with LED lights embedded in them can make drivers aware that you are ahead or light up the path for a run. These five products can help make your next afterhours workout a whole lot safer.
Nike Flash Small Capacity Running Waistpack
To eliminate the bulkiness of an average fanny pack, this waistpack is contoured to fit around the waist and can store keys, cards, cash and small snacks. The reflective details on the front will also help you stand out during nighttime workouts.
GRDE Zoomable 1800 Lumens Led Flashlight Headlamp Headlight
Better than your average street light, the GRDE has a beam brightness up to a 100-watt incandescent bulb. With an adjustable 90-degree angle, you can focus the light in different areas as needed. The three light functions (High, Low, Strobe) will come in handy when going off trail or to secluded areas.

Adding a little extra precaution to your average safety patrol belt, this breathable vest is constructed with reflective accents for 360-degree visibility. The ergonomic design allows for full range of motion.

Simple to convert mid-ride with its zip-off sleeves, the jacket delivers core body warmth on cool days. It also features a 360-degree reflective property that helps keep you extra visible in low-light conditions.
Brooks Running PureFlow 6 Running Shoes
The PureFlow 6 features a flexible midsole that feels plush underfoot so you get a natural feel while protecting your feet from impact. The neon yellow upper material provides a pop of bright color to make you more visible in low-light conditions.
