Too Hot, Too Cold, Just Right!

Too Hot, Too Cold, Just Right!


If you're going to be exercising or working outdoors during hot weather, get your body acclimated to the heat first, urges fitness specialist Bob Bonham, founder of the Strong and Shapely Gym in East Rutherford, N.J. Failing to acclimate to the heat raises risks for heat stroke, marked by such unpleasant symptoms as nausea, dizziness, weakness, and headache. More severe cases may even include pale and clammy skin, excessive sweating, small pupils, and a weak pulse. If you experience any of these symptoms, get out of the sun, drink water or a sports drink, wrap yourself in a cool, wet towel, and seek medical attention.
