Hydration and Your Fitness Routine
Our 2019 Get Slim for Summer program is all about transformation, and we hope you’re working toward optimal health with us! Throughout April and May, we’re going to talk about the many aspects of your health that will help you feel your best. Today, we’re focusing on hydration and how it impacts your fitness!
Our bodies are mostly water, so proper hydration is a key part of taking care of your health. Every tissue in your body needs water to function properly! Staying hydrated helps you regulate your body temperature, carries nutrients to your cells, and helps flush bacteria from your system. It helps your heart more easily pump blood throughout your body. It helps your muscles function effectively. It can help you feel more energetic and alert, and it plays key roles in your heart, brain, and muscle function.
When you work out, you lose more fluids than usual through sweat and increased respiration. Research suggests that even mild dehydration can have a negative impact on your athletic performance, so to feel your best, you need to make sure you drink enough fluids to replenish what you’ve lost. The amount of water that you need to drink when you work out depends on a lot of factors, including the duration and intensity of your workout, so it’s important to do what works for you!
For optimal hydration during your workouts, try our sports drink, Fun! Fun is a delicious drink that uses Enduramin, a proprietary blend of electrolytes, to promote faster recovery from exercise. It also contains Alkalete, our proprietary alkaline blend that is designed to promote a healthy body pH, and a 2:1:1 blend of amino acids.
Fun is sweetened with stevia rather than sugar, and at just ten calories per serving, it’s a great way to stay hydrated during your workouts without sabotaging your results. Click here to learn more about Fun and how it can help you focus on optimal sports hydration!
