Zip Fitness: Beat the Heat!

zip

With temperatures rising and summer just around the bend, Zip Fitness, a great place to find top-notch personal training in Chicago and budget-friendly tanning near Joliet, is here to pass on some tips for working out safely in warm weather.  Keep this info in mind whether you’re pumping iron at one of our gyms, or doing some lakeside cardio!

1)      Dress appropriately.  The best way to keep your body cool is by wearing loose-fitting polyester/cotton-blend clothing, or clothing specifically designed to reject moisture.

2)      Stay hydrated.  Everyone knows this one, but it bears repeating, since sometimes we get so into our workout that we don’t remember to take a water break.  Opt for coconut water instead of sports drinks and other sugary liquids.

3)      Don’t exercise during midday, which is “peak heat” time.  Instead, get your workout in at night or in the morning.

4)      Protect your skin.  Shy away from sunscreen – it prevents vitamin D production and allows harmful chemicals to enter your skin.  Wear light-colored clothing, and a hat if necessary.

5)      Let your body acclimate to the heat.  Start your workout slow and increase the intensity as your body adjusts.  The faster you break a sweat, the more tolerant your body is of the heat.

6)       If possible, find a shady area to workout in.  A forest preserve, a tree-filled park – anywhere that stays cool when the temperature rises.

7)      On really hot days, make your workout one of the aquatic variety and trust water to naturally cool your body.  Head for the lake and avoid hazardous pool chemicals.

8)      Workout barefoot.  New research shows that the ground collisionforce generated by a running shoe hitting the ground increases injury potential.  Running barefoot also allows your body to absorb beneficial negative electrons.

See you in the gym!
