Did you know that by the time you realize you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated?

The human body is over 60% water. Drinking plenty of fluids throughout the day is necessary to maintain and replenish your water levels. Proper hydration is essential for things like muscle function, joint and brain protection, immune health, digestion and yes, mood! Studies show that staying hydrated can also reduce high blood pressure, fight fatigue and rejuvenate your skin.

Soda, sweet/sugary juice, tea and coffee are NOT substitutes for water. About 83% of the adult population in the U.S. drinks coffee. If you’re in the majority, be sure you’re counteracting it with enough water!

So what’s the simplest way to start your fitness journey? Don’t get dehydrated. Skip the next sweet drink, choose an ice cold glass of water, then Sign Up for your free fitness assessment at CrossFit Exclamation!
