You are probably thinking, "Yeah. Yeah. I know. I know. I drink water during your classes. What could she possibly tell me that I  don't know." Here's the thing. Not everyone does. So, just give me just a sec for a quick reminder to all you educated, wonderful people. 

We want to make sure that you stay hydrated during your ride. So, Guest Services may ask you if you need water. Your instructor may remind you to drink up or give a "Cheers!" during class. I want to make sure that you are all properly hydrating yourself and this starts before class.

How do you know if you are not properly hydrated? I am going to be frank and tell you what I tell my children. Look at your urine. Proper hydration means that your urine is practically clear. (Unless, of course, you are taking special meds or vitamins.) If your urine is cloudy or darker, you are most likely dehydrated.

People, please trust me when I tell you that you NEED water BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER your ride at Cycle614! Dehydration not only causes cramps but it also limits your strength and performance. Don't you want the strongest ride eva???!!!

My advice to you is easy and here's the goal: Try to do the following: Drink a bottle of water before class. Drink a bottle of water during class. Finally, drink a bottle of water after class. 

I always tease people and say that "Cycle614 makes dry-fit clothing look like a rip off." Really though, when was the last time you walked out of a class NOT SOAKING WET? You have that special "glow" because of your body's natural cooling system to reduce your body's core temperature. To feel good, you need to replenish that water in your body. If you don't you could suffer from cramping, headaches, nausea, dizziness and exhaustion. So, DRINK UP!

If you should have any questions or concerns, just grab me in the studio and I will be happy to help you.  In the meantime, let's stay healthy and hydrated!

Have a great week!
