Tips for Exercising in the Summer

Summer is in full swing and it’s finally time to go outside and soak up some sun! Summer gives you the opportunity to take your workouts outside– but along with the warmer weather comes extreme heat and humidity. Here are a few tips to help you get through your summer workouts:

Avoid the hottest time of the day- Avoid exercising outside between 10am till 3pm where temperatures are the highest. If mornings aren’t an option, check a weather app to find out the lowest temperatures during the day. Wear loose and light colored clothing- Avoid wearing dark workout clothing that absorbs heat. Light and loose clothing will help you keep cool during your workout. Don’t forget to wear a hat to keep the sun off your head! Wear Sunscreen – Always protect your skin; even when you are outside getting your sweat on! Stay Hydrated! – Before working out outside, drink water to stay hydrated during your workout. When you sweat, you lose a lot of water and electrolytes. Don’t forget to replenish your fluids post-workout. Exercise in cooler places – Shaded trails will help keep you cool on the hot summer day! But most importantly…listen to your body – if you start feeling dizzy or nauseous, stop exercise immediately.

I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man.

Everybody treated me like a king. The day of surgery, I was excited. The hospital couldn’t be any nicer. I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man. My recovery was awesome. I was out of bed that day. My wife and kids were my motivation on getting this surgery. They are my whole life. I’m happy I’m going to be around for them.

Nicole's success story

I hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.

Samantha's success story

I feel like a completely different person.

I had the gastric sleeve procedure. The driving factor behind me getting this procedure was my health. I didn't feel good physically or mentally. I had joint pains, even standing was difficult sometimes. Emotionally, this surgery completely turned my life around. I have so much more confidence. So much more happiness. I feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger. I feel able to accomplish more.

Eileen's success story

It saved my life.

The driving factor behind me getting my procedure was that I couldn't get up off the floor with my granddaughter. That was my why. That was my big reason for having this surgery done. After surgery, it was a little bit of a struggle with what to eat. What you put in your mouth that you don't even think about. You don't think about what you're eating or how you're eating and portion size. It's what I do now every single day. The procedure has changed my life in so many ways. It saved my life.

Brittany's success story

I am totally comfortable in my own skin.

I think I always grew up identifying myself as less than other people because I was fat. I decided to tackle that and just live my life. I had a sleeve gastrectomy. It changed how I view myself. How I communicate with people. I'm able to be much more of myself and live the life I always thought I should have been living. I am totally comfortable in my own skin. You have the tools you need to succeed here.
