Exercise Safety

Exercising in hot weather puts extra stress on your body, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Dear Mayo Clinic: Our family loves to exercise outdoors. With summer coming, I want to make sure our family stays safe. What advice do you have for staying hydrated and avoiding issues while working out in the heat?

Answer: Exercising in hot weather puts extra stress on your body. If you don’t take care when exercising in the heat, you risk serious illness. The exercise, as well as the air temperature and humidity, can increase your core body temperature.
