Daily Fitness Tip: Nov. 5

Drink more water!  As it starts to get a little chilly out, we tend to drink less water.  Carry an extra water bottle with you this week, pack a crystal light to add a splash of flavor, have a glass when you wake up and just before bed.  You may not feel like you sweat as much when its cold out, but you do!  It just evaporates quicker, so drink up!  Don't let dehydration sneak up on you!
