Hydration is easy
It’s simple. To maintain optimum health and physical fitness:
• Drink fluids
• Preferably non caffeinated (but still counts)
• Eat water rich foods often. Vegetables and fruits (preferably low in sugar) are great to keep hydrated
• Avoid dehydration during a workout by drinking a glass of water an hour before training, during the workout as required and within an hour of finishing.
See you at the studio soon.
With healthy wishes,
