The most important part of any workout is to stay hydrated. Dehydration can lead to a decrease in physical activity performance and may adversely affect your health.

It is important to drink water before, during, and after exercise. The exact amounts of water needed will vary based on gender, exercise environment, type of exercise, the intensity of exercise, etc. Here is a general exercise hydration guideline;

Before: 17-20 oz. of water at least 2 hours prior to exercise.
During: 7-10 oz. of water for every 10-20 minutes of exercise.  
After: 16-24 oz. of water for each pound lost due to sweating.


Feeling the burn yet? If you start to feel too hot during your workout, run a Cooling Towel under cold water and pat down your face and neck with it. The face and neck are some of the most temperature-sensitive areas, so if you cool them down you'll feel cooler.

Cooling Towel material is highly absorbent, (like a sponge) and can absorb up to 8 times its weight in water. Once wet, the towels produce a cooling effect with the help of simple evaporation. As long as the towel is wet, exposed to the air, and allowed to "breathe" the water will evaporate keeping you cool. 


Keep cool and comfortable by pulling your hair away from your face and off your neck. 

There's no right or wrong way to do this: high or low ponytail, messy or controlled bun, hair ties, or headband.

Experiment with different styles until you find the one that works best for you and your workout.


Look for clothing with synthetic fabrics specifically designed for exercise.
Poly-Dri: Any type of workout, no matter the weather.
Bamboo Fiber: All workout or weather conditions.
Nylon: All workouts or weather conditions.
Merino Wool: During outdoor, cool weather workouts
