Fluid Replacement Recommendations
Prehydrating with beverages, if needed, should be initiated at least several hours before the exercise task to enable fluid absorption and allow urine output to return toward normal levels. Consuming beverages with sodium and/or salted snacks or small meals with beverages can help stimulate thirst and retain needed fluids.
Individuals should develop customized fluid replacement programs that prevent excessive (<2% body weight reductions from baseline body weight) dehydration. The routine measurement of pre- and postexercise body weights is useful for determining sweat rates and customized fluid replacement programs. Consumption of beverages containing electrolytes and carbohydrates can help sustain fluid-electrolyte balance and exercise performance
If time permits, consumption of normal meals and beverages will restore hydration. Individuals needing rapid and complete recovery from excessive dehydration can drink ~1.5 L of fluid for each kilogram of body weight lost. Consuming beverages and snacks with sodium will help expedite rapid and complete recovery by stimulating thirst and fluid retention. Intravenous fluid replacement is generally not advantageous, unless medically merited.

To our 3 WINS Family,
In response to the recent incidents that have occurred in our communities and across the country due to the ongoing issue of racism and police brutality, we want to remind you that we are here for your support. We understand that these events have not been easy to endure. They have been draining, frustrating, and in many ways degrading especially amongst the black community. We want you to know we stand with our communities. We do not support police brutality, racism nor inequality. We realize that the importance of black lives must continually be emphasized. For we should all remember that it is NOT our similarities that make us strong, but our DIFFERENCES. We hope you remain safe. Remember to take care of your mental health, overall well-being, and keep moving.

In this unprecedented time, we have gone exclusively ONLINE.
With the COVID-19/Coronavirus uncertainty looming, circumstances rapidly changing, and recommendations from the County and the CDC, we will be shutting down 3 WINS Fitness until further notice.
The average age of our participants is 57 with many in the “older” category who are at greater risk. Read more about those who the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have identified as higher risk to COVID-19. Our program is in the community to improve community health and the nature of our equipment, exercise, and often close proximity of participants tells us this is the right choice. We are in the community for the long haul and this closure will be a blip on the radar in the bigger picture.
We would like to convey our sincere sentiments to all participants and let you know this is with your safety in mind.
