Fitness and wellbeing month: Tip seven - staying hydrated whilst exercising

Jan 10, 2019

Every day throughout January the Sports Centre will be sharing top fitness and wellbeing tips with you. Salford's very own fitness gurus Daley O'Neal and Michael Thomasson will be giving out quick-fire, manageable tips aimed at getting your body and mind on track for a healthy 2019. From building a good relationship with exercise to taking advantage of the classes and facilities right here on campus, there's lots to keep you motivated. Plus they'll be giving away a month's free Sports Centre pass - all you need to do is tell us how you're applying one of their tips in your everyday life (simply email us at Internalcomms-Uos@salford.ac.uk or tweet us at @USinternalcomms). 

Hydration is key when exercising as it helps to regulate your body temperature and lubricate the joints, reducing aches and pains. Therefore, you should always have a full water bottle with you when exercising to keep your body replenished. Aim for around two to four litres per day dependant on your BMI.

If you're not a big fan of drinking water, add a little dash of flavour to it by grabbing a squeezy portable squash flavour shot.
