SEE hydrates your workout


SEE Tip:  With spring in the air, exercising outside can be a lot more enticing.  The beautiful weather can provide scenic walks or runs.  It can also provide the best opportunity for groups to get some exercise-- live it up like a kid with a game of freeze tag with friends or meet for a tennis match.  There's lots of options, but with these options we need to take care of our bodies.  Be mindful of the added sun exposure by wearing sunscreen and stay hydrated.  Drink water before, during, and after a workout to keep the body balanced and fueled for more.
