Fall is here and so is the cold and rainy season. It’s even more important to warm up your body during this time of year. Before every training session, a good stretching is great way to start up. Here are 5 ideas of warm up exercises you can do. Pair them with some comfortable athletic wear and you’ll be good to go for the season!

Jump Rope

Start with a regular two-footed jump, and as you get warm you can play around with other jump styles.
