Here is your Friday Fit and Healthy Lifestyle Tip.
Today’s Tip: Sweating during exercise is OK
Sweating, also known as perspiration is your body’s cooling system. It helps the internal temperature of your body stay in a normal range. Sweating during exercise is healthy and your body is supposed to do it so don’t be embarrassed about it. But don’t be mistaken, sweating is NOT weight loss.
WebMD recommends that you drink plenty of fluids and says, “Many people do not drink enough fluids to balance the loss from sweating from physical activity” so be sure to stay hydrated while exercising.
*Excessive sweating/perspiration should be checked out by your doctor
What exercise makes you sweat the most?
For me, it’s spin class and the Elliptical. I tried the stair master once and that was one big sweat fest. Wish I could do it more but with bad knees I just can’t.
