A healthy lifestyle has many perks. When a person exercises regularly, he or she will feel invigorated and have an increased level of energy. These benefits can assist in other areas of life such as the ability to pay more attention to tasks at work, get a better night’s sleep and experience less fatigue overall.
However, people often neglect to drink the proper amount of water after a hard workout. The body is made up of approximately 70 percent water, and when a person exercises, he or she needs to replace what was lost during increased perspiration, respiration and metabolic processes. Soda and other soft drinks aren’t the appropriate sources of replenishment.
Exercise facilities may not do enough to promote their members’ need to consume the proper amount of water before, during and after their workouts. Many business owners either offer up disposable plastic water bottles for sale or install water fountains for their members. Both of these options may be more harmful for the body than people think as disposable plastics contain bisphenol-A (BPA) and water fountains house a wide array of bacteria and germs.
Gym owners should install point-of-use water coolers from Quench instead. These top-of-the-line bottleless water coolers tap directly into the building’s main water supply, filter out bacteria and germs to provide guests with truly purified, healthy water. The affordable water cooler rentals can be factored into the cost of a gym membership, which will help people receive the necessary amount of water while working out, without having to purchase disposable bottles. This can even be promoted as an extra value the gym provides to its members.
Drinking water during a workout transports necessary nutrients and hormones in the body, which improves digestion, nerve transmissions and increases energy. People who do not get the proper amount of water won’t see the results they desire – muscles are over 70 percent water. Taking a quick drink to cool off, which most people do after a work out, is different than truly re-hydrating yourself. Drink at least a full glass.
If you’re working out and your muscles look flat and inadequate, ask your gym to install Quench water coolers today, and enjoy water, exercise, and weight loss.
