With the hot weather among us, focus on hydration!

 

With the hot weather among us, it is highly critical to focus on hydration.

 

Sweating is your body’s natural cooling function. Of course, sweat rates increase in the hot weather. Due to this increase in sweat, it’s imperative to stay hydrated each day to keep your body functioning at a high level.

 

Sedentary individuals (less than 2 workouts a week/sit down job) need 50-60 ounces of water daily. Active individuals (2-4 workouts a week/active lifestyle) need to consume at least 60-80 ounces of water each day. The more you workout, the more you sweat and the more intense the training becomes, the more you need to focus on hydration. Very active athletes (triathletes, runners, team sport athletes) also need to add electrolytes into their hydration strategies. Sodium concentration is key to performance.

 

Many athletes suffer from hyponatremia: when the sodium in your body is flushed out and concentration is low. The symptoms can be exactly the same as dehydration (cramping, nausea, fatigue, etc) and the first thing many athletes do is drink more water, which can exacerbate the issue. Electrolytes can be consumed in the form of sports drinks (many choices to choose from) or low-calorie tablets like NUUN. If you know you have a workout approaching, make sure to come into the training session hydrated and ready to go.

 

If you have any specific questions, please let us know.

Happy Birthday CFA!!

 

9 years ago today I took a risk and started California Fitness Academy. My main goal was to change the way our community did fitness. We have battled through some tough times, but the relationships that have been built and the lives that have been changed completely outweigh any of the negatives. This is a team effort and WE HAVE A PHENOMENAL TEAM! What started off as a 1-man show and a small 2500 sq. foot facility has now grown to a staff of 22 and two facilities in the area. I am humbled. I am VERY thankful. I am blessed. I want to thank my wife and daughters because they put up with my obsessive personality. I want to thank my staff, because they believe in my mission and echo our message. I want to thank our members because without them, this is not possible and YOU ALL make coming to “work” AWESOME!! I want to thank the community because the support has been unbelievable. Thousands of people have been positively affected from just a simple idea 9 years ago…MOTIVATE OTHERS through FITNESS…. And we will NOT STOP! Happy Birthday CFA!!
