Keep your cool in the sunshine!
By Nurishment 1 - 30 June 2011
We're loving the hot weather at the moment! Let’s just hope it lasts…
The sun's out and we've seen lots of people out jogging and playing football in the park, making the most of the sunshine. It’s a great excuse to add some fun to your usual fitness routine – grab a frisbee or a beach ball!
If you’re out and about getting fit, here are our top tips for exercising in the heat:
- Wear light, loose fitting clothes that let your skin breathe. Try cotton or special materials that are designed to keep you cool.
- Take regular breaks.
- Avoid exercising at midday, the hottest part of the day.
- Avoid dehydration – drink plenty of fluids before, during and after exercise.
- Wear sun cream, even if you’re exercising early in the morning or in the evening.
The sunny weather also means it’s time for summer holidays, barbeques and fun days out. What have you got planned this year?

Nurishment backing Brits at Wimbledon
By Nurishment 1 - 27 June 2011
We know you can’t get enough of sport, Nurishment fans - whether it’s watching it or playing it – and neither can we, ofcourse! At the moment we’re spending much of our time glued to our TV screens, heads moving dazedly back and forth as we watch the Wimbledon action unfold.
This year, two young British hopefuls, Laura Robson and Heather Watson, battled for glory, but unfortunately have been knocked out of the tournament. Laura was defeated by Maria Sharapova and Heather lost to Mathilde Johansson.
Commiserations to them both, but we wish them the best of luck next time!
It’s not all over for Team GB, though. Our fingers are crossed for Andy Murray – could this be his year?
If any of you Nurishment fans are lucky enough to be at Wimbledon munching on strawberries and cream, we’re utterly jealous – but we’d love to hear about it. As for the rest of us, a cold strawberry Nurishment in front of the TV is almost as good!
Feel free to let us know who you think will be this year’s men’s and women’s champions by posting a reply – we’ll let you gloat if you get both right, and we might even send you a coupon for a free bottle or can of your favourite Nurishment flavour as a prize…
