comprise Mr. Levy's sports
wardrobe. As far as helmets go,
he recommends those with locks
that won't allow the headpiece
to slip on impact. A suggested
make: Roc Loc by Giro.
Vibrant helmet covers —
made to match biking shirts —
are on their way out because
they generally don't fit over the
newer style of headgear, which
is evolving from solid and shell-
like to streamlined and Swiss
cheese-like for good air circula-
tion.
An expert cyclist and veteran
of Moab (a challenging biking
terrain in Utah), Mr. Levy de-
scribes the feat of pushing ped-
als almost as tough as his choice
of accoutrements.
"One of the problems, when
you have all this clothing," he
says "is deciding what you are
going to wear."
On a scale from 1 to 10, Jan
Jacobs ranks the importance of
fitness fashion a 7.5. More im-
portant than being in style, she
says, is being safe.
"I'm fairly pragmatic about
things," she says. "I go much
more for what's going to work."
Ms. Jacobs, a resident of
Birmingham, owns Fit For
Health, a personal fitness-train-
ing company. She earned her
master's in exercise physiology
and stays in shape 12 months
a year. One of her great loves is
running, even during the cold
months of winter.
For winter running, there are
several factors to bear in mind.
First, cover all extremities, Ms.
Jacobs says. Most heat is lost
through the head, so it's vital to
wear a hat.

"One real big rule of
thumb," she says, "is try
to go out into the wind,
so when you come back
and you're sweaty, the
wind is behind your
back and you don't get
further chilled."
Whatever a person
wears, he or she should
keep in mind that it's
OK to be somewhat cold
at first. After a workout
is in full swing, the tem-
perature will feel at
least 30 degrees warmer
than the actual ther-
mometer reading.
As with biking, bright
colors for running are
hip and wise. Night run-
ners shouldn't neglect a
light on their hats and
reflective tape on their
pants, tops and shoes.
Unlike ordinary fashion,
styles in workout wear
have developed with an
eye for safety.
To remain as visible as possi-
ble on the road, Ms. Jacobs
wears "tons of colors and pat-
terns — neons, stripes, swirls,
checks." Her first layer of

clothing always features
the much-hailed wicking action.
The second layer is made of a
warm material, like fleece. And
for an outer layer, Ms. Jacobs
chooses a jacket that's water-
proof, breathable and wind re-
sistant.
Gortex, she says, is warm and
lightweight, but for her, it's al-
most overkill. Ms. Jacobs prefers
nylon, which she also wears in
panels over her knees as a wind
barrier.
"I wear headbands, but it's
probably better to wear a hat,"
she says.
Popular among winter sports
enthusiasts are "Baklavas," a
hood-like garment similar to a
"Gator," which folds into differ-
ent shapes to cover the neck,
head and ears. ❑
