Beat The Heat
An excessive heat warning is in effect for New York City through 8pm tomorrow. The two biggest risks when working out in high or humid temperatures are dehydration and heat stroke. Dehydration occurs when your body loses more water than it requires for normal functioning, and heat stroke occurs when your body temperature rises faster than it can regulate. Both of these conditions are very serious and can lead to sickness and even death in extreme cases. That being said, you can do a couple of simple things to make sure you’re safe while working out:
1. Hydrate! Drink cold water before, during, and after you exercise. We have a water fountain in 608, a sink in 597, and a bunch of beverages for sale in the fridge. We encourage everyone to bring their own reusable water container. Try to drink water at regular intervals. You want to be taking in more water than you’re losing so don’t wait until you’re thirsty to start chugging.
2. Listen to your body. If you’re feeling lightheaded, dizzy, nauseous, begin to cramp, or display anything resembling fever symptoms, it’s time to stop, cool down and hydrate. Sometimes during hard workouts we try to “push through the pain,” but remember that putting yourself at risk in order to shave off an extra :15 seconds is both dangerous and contrary to why you’re here in the first place. (To get fit!)
