Raise the bar on good hydration. Start by delivering easy access to fresh and clean drinking water.  

One – if not THE most- important action for an athlete, is to remember to stay hydrated. The same is true for sports enthusiasts or anyone who is wanting to be physically active. Staying hydrated involves regular access to plenty of drinking water. This includes before, during and after a workout.

Dehydration leads to poor performance.  

Not drinking enough water affects performance in a negative way. Moreover, it can lead to irritability and general discomfort. This is followed by a headache, weakness, dizziness, cramps, chills, heartburn, vomiting, nausea, head, or neck heat sensations, and even collapse. 

Did you know that when you drink water when thirsty, means you are already starting to suffer from dehydration?  EVERYONE should be drinking water on a regular basis. This is especially true when it comes to optimum performance. But also,  when you do not engage in physical activity.

In summary, people should be drinking water well before any symptoms of thirst appear.

Access to fresh and clean drinking water  

For Gym, Fitness Centre, and Sports Club owners and managers, looking after health and well-being is paramount.  

This includes providing access to fresh and clean drinking water at their facilities. 

Choosing the right water station for your business can seem daunting but it does not have to be. We have summarised the key features to look for when choosing a water station for your club below.

Provide water bottle refill capacity  

Being able to refill a reusable water bottle ensures that your members can take their drinking water with them around the gym. This means that they will drink more water over the course of their stay.  

Minimize downtime to get a refill 

Nobody likes to wait in line to access water. Time is precious! Provide enough drinking water access points, and choose a unit that delivers water at an appropriate rate.

Provide chilled drinking water  

Nothing tastes better than chilled water. Especially when heart rates are rising and body temperature increases, staying hydrated is important. Providing chilled water makes it more attractive to drink water. In addition, it helps members stay cool.  

Provide filtered drinking water  

In Australia, we have high-quality water on tap. However, the difference between filtered and non-filtered water can be quite noticeable. This is especially true for areas with higher levels of chlorine. The solution to this is to provide filtered drinking water.
