Water Works!

Ritchie Gibson

Water is a vital element of any person's training regime. Without an adequate water intake, results and overall performance can suffer dramatically.  As we exercise blood pumps through our bodies creating friction and raising our body's core temperature, with this our sweat glands are activated and in turn the body starts to perspire.

This is how our bodies combat the overheating process, however, the role of water in the body goes far beyond that of a defence mechanism for overheating.  It's feasible for an individual to lose 3-5kg of water (1kg =1litre of water) during an average circuit training class lasting 60-90 minutes.  If excessive fluid is lost, due to physical training particularly in the more humid climates the blood then becomes more viscous (thicker) and its ability to flow is significantly reduced.

About me

Hello there! I'm a Personal Trainer at Genesis Fitness in Dandenong.

I am passionate about Health and Fitness.

I have enjoyed my one on one sessions with my own personal trainer so much that I challenged myself to be a personal trainer.

I had fun and a good experience studying the Certificate IV in Fitness at Genesis Fitness through the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers (AIPT) that I applied for the Personal Trainer position when I was qualified.

Contact me to talk health and fitness via social media/email/mobile or arrange a consultation at Genesis Fitness Dandenong.

Thanks for viewing my page.
