​Hydrating for Group Fitness Classes

Spoiler alert: Drinking a bottle of plain water before your fitness class is not going to set you up for hydration success.

Very rarely do you walk into a group fitness class where the instructor discloses to the class, “Okay guys…today I’m going to take it easy on you all.” Most classes ranging from 45-90 minutes in length have been designed to work your body to its maximum capacity over the allotted amount of time. This is exactly why nailing your hydration plan will bring out your personal best in the time you’ve set aside for your workout.

We've put together the ideal hydration plan for your group fitness days. Follow these hydration guidelines from first thing in the morning through bedtime to ensure you’re getting the most out of your water and yourself!

​Why drink electrolytes if you can eat them?

As an electrolyte-based sports drink company, we often get the question, “Can’t I get my electrolytes through food rather than an electrolyte drink?”.

The short answer is: YES! Of course you can consume electrolytes through your regular diet.

The Role of Electrolytes

We all understand that a balanced health regimen includes a solid hydration plan. The benefits of hydration range from glowing skin to essential organ functionality, but did you know that water alone does not provide absolute optimal hydration? While H2O consumption is vital to the inner workings of the human body, drinking tons of water every day is actually not the best way to ensure that the H2O is being absorbed and utilized in the best ways possible.

Enter: Electrolytes. (Welcome to the party electrolytes!) **Happy Dance**

Electrolytes provide a number of biological benefits, and water absorption is at the top of the list! When combined with water, electrolytes go to work making sure that the fluid leaving our water bottle actually gets absorbed into our system (rather than flushing right through us), ensuring all of the hydration benefits we know and love about water!

Now that we’ve officially got this hydration party started, there are SO many reasons to celebrate electrolytes for our everyday health.

​Staying Hydrated on the Mountain

The winter weather invites opportunity for some of our favorite mountain-side sports. Whether you’re hitting the slopes, snowshoeing, or cross-country skiing, it’s important to remember to stay hydrated during a day on the mountain.

It’s easy to forget to keep hydrated when the weather is cold, and you’re not left feeling hot and sweaty after your workout. But the truth is that cold weather workouts (especially on the mountain), require even more attention to staying on your hydration A-Game. The Nuun Elite team has many Nordic skiers that understand the value and payoff of proper mountain hydration. With a number of those athletes heading to this year’s Winter Olympics Games, we think they’ve got something figured out!
