Any nutrition expert will tell you that inadequate fluid intake could leave you feeling lethargic, unmotivated, and prone to pounding headaches, especially during the hot summer months. Why? Dehydration occurs when our body starts to lose more fluids than we take in. This is especially common during summer months, as we don’t typically realize how much fluid our body loses while exercising in the heat. Yes, water is critical during a workout to replace fluid loss. However, in hot, humid heat, electrolytes are needed to ensure our body is adequately hydrated to avoid dehydration.
I remember telling Lasantha that one of my fitness goals was just to generally “tone up” and I don’t think I actually knew what that meant. Lasantha has given me a great leeway into the world of fitness and has helped me really make use of my membership in terms of using the vast amount of equipment that the gym has to offer.

Chances are that December and January involved family, friends, fun, time-off and relaxation. Christmas time and the festive season is truly an amazing time to get together with the people closest to you and unwind from the year that has just passed.

Now that we are into the new year it’s time to get back on the wagon and prioritise your health and fitness.
