Summer Bootcamp Tips

Women outside working out in the summer

The summer is here and it is HOT!  Here are a few tips for exercising in the heat:

  1. Wear sunscreen on your face, neck and hands!  Unless you want age spots, in that case, please don’t wear any…
  2.  Bring a spray bottle to cool yourself down when those burpees suck the life out of you…
  3. Pack a little towel or wristband to wipe your never-ending forehead sweat…
  4. Bring 2 bottles of water with lots of ice to quench your unquenchable thirst…
  5.  If you cramp, add a little Gatorade or Vega Electrolytes to your water. About 1/4 Gatorade per bottle or 1 scoop of Vega.
  6. Wear sunglasses or a sun visor (it’s ugly but who cares)
  7. Bring some ‘Wet ones’ to wipe the sweat off your mat (or someone else’s sweat ewwwww…)
  8. Modify your exercises if you feel yourself overheating
  9. And of course… CHANGE YOUR RUNNERS every 6 months! …  See you in the sun, everyone!
