Fitness News Flash


  • I stick to the off-road trails and paths - fortunate that here we have lots of them. - 11/11/2015 8:14:11 AM
  • I have a road like that near me, I try not to walk on it very much it's stinky from car exhaust and loud from trucks. - 10/9/2015 8:20:00 AM
  • It never ceases to amaze me how it takes a study to discover what society knew as the obvious. LOL - 7/17/2015 12:38:41 PM
  • I have heard of this too there is a bandana you can get that is supposed to cut down on inhaled toxins (its for motorcyclists and made in England) I know the drugstore by my house used to carry it I should get one. - 6/25/2015 8:12:18 PM
  • I'd love to exercise outside, but I have asthma and allergies and feel like I'm on barrowed time as it is. I'm ok Mall Walking or going to a gym that has a good air conditioning system. I use to love the outdoors when I was a kid. Parents, brother,sister and their friends were always heavy smokers (white paint turned absolutely grey). - 11/8/2014 10:00:15 PM
  • Rather misleading heading. Exercising OUTSIDE isn't the problem. Exercising on a road or with poor air quality is. - 8/26/2014 11:33:54 PM
  • I live in a city but we do have things like subdivisions (purely residential and usually low traffic) and parks. I stick to those places most of the time! I do go shopping on foot which calls for walking along major streets BUT I'm not putting in the same effort or breathing as hard as I do back in the subdivisions or parks. - 8/26/2014 12:46:23 PM
  • Thanks for sharing. - 8/7/2014 6:58:39 AM
  • Wow, great tip to run by. I never would have thought about it. I will keep to bike trails as much as possible. I was thinking more traffic related accidents. Bears are not a problem in my neck of the woods. - 8/6/2014 12:09:25 PM
  • I live in the country and I thought this article was going to be about how to avoid bears ! lol - 6/24/2014 8:06:06 AM
  • Aww... feel bad for people who live in the city but like to exercise outdoors. - 1/10/2014 11:57:49 AM
  • I live in the city, unfortunately I exercise there too. - 5/17/2013 9:04:08 AM

    I always wondered whether this might be true. Unfortunately, vegetable gardens in high traffic areas have the same problem. - 5/14/2013 5:45:12 AM
  • I'm glad I run out in the country where there is little traffic! Thank you for this article, as I have not thought about this previously! - 2/13/2011 10:03:13 AM
    Yes, trails all the way! :) - 2/13/2011 7:22:20 AM
