[IP] Exercise and the pump

i just got hooked up to my paradigm pump last week, and i have a few 
questions about exercising with the pump. my pump trainer suggested that i 
reduce my basal rate and keep the pump on while I exercise, but i don't know 
how comfortable I am doing this during intense exercise (such as kickboxing 
or circuit training.) please let me know what some of your experiences have 
been... my fear is that if i keep the pump on while i workout, even at a 
reduced basal rate, my sugar will go low-- as it often did when i was on 
MDI. i also don't imagine it would be too comfortable to keep the pump 
clipped on to me as i'm jumping around, any suggestions on where to wear it 
if i do keep it attached? all responses are appreciated... i'm rather 
inexperienced here :)
