The present weather with the heat and humidity can have an impact on our fitness regimes. Exposure to extreme heat can lead to heat stroke; a condition which can be fatal. Under normal conditions, skin, blood vessels, perspiration adjust to the heat, but on exposure to high temperatures, humidity, dehydration, these cooling systems may fail and eventually lead to heat-related complications such as heat syncope, heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke.
While the festive season is on, the heat can be demotivating to exercise outdoors. Let’s get in shape with Pilates workouts indoors which are very efficient and have the same effect as some advanced outdoors workouts.
