Stay Hydrated

It is going to be HOT and the gym is even hotter!  It is very important that you stay hydrated.  If you are coming to a morning class be sure to drink a full glass of water the night before and the morning of.  If you are planning on working out later in the day carry a water bottle around with you so that you are more likely to drink it.  You will need to drink half your body weight in ounces every day to stay hydrated!  That is a lot of water…so drink up!

Did you know that athletes will suffer up to a 30% decrease in performance if they are dehydrated?  The symptoms of dehydration are flushing, low endurance, rapid heart rate, elevated body temperatures, and rapid onset of fatigue – these sound pretty familiar to how one might feel during a Crossfit workout.  So take out the guess work and do your homework and drink your liquids so that you can come in here and kick some butt.  We are going heavy today!
