Six Tips to Exercise Safely in the Heat


Exercising in the heat can be challenging, but with the right precautions, you can keep your workouts safe and effective even during the warmest months. Here are six key tips:

1.💧 HYDRATE: Dehydration can be a serious concern in hot weather. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids before, during, and after your workout. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty – you could already be dehydrated by then.

2.🕰️ TIMING IS KEY: Aim to exercise during the cooler parts of the day, typically early morning or late evening. Avoid peak sun intensity hours, usually between 10am and 4pm.

3. 🌴 SEEK SHADE: Whenever possible, workout in shaded areas or indoors to reduce heat exposure.

4. 👕 LIGHT CLOTHING: Wear lightweight, breathable, and light-coloured clothing. These can help reflect sunlight and keep your body cool.

5. 🐢 TAKE IT SLOW: Your body needs time to adapt to higher temperatures. Start your workout at a slower pace than usual, and gradually increase the intensity as your body acclimates to the heat.

6. 🏊 DIP IN THE POOL: A great way to cool down and keep fit at the same time is to take a dip in one of our swimming pools!

Remember, always listen to your body. If you’re feeling dizzy, faint or nauseous, stop your workout and seek immediate medical attention.
