Too Hot to Workout?

Throughout a large part of the country the temperatures are soaring. If you are in these temperatures. Beware of working out outdoors, and follow a few simple guidelines.

Working out indoors is preferable in 100+ temps, or days with bad air quality.

Cut back your regular routines until your body adjusts.

Early morning workouts are best right now. The temperatures are lowest. Evening workouts come in second.

Drink plenty of fluids. Dehydration is a big factor.

The older you are, often the greater the risk for heat stroke, dehydration, etc. Use caution.

Take our workout time and practice focused meditation and deep breathing. This can be even more rewarding to your overall health and mind!

If all else fails, a mint julip on the front porch with a friend isn’t a bad idea either….

Stay Cool!
