Hydration for Sport and Exercise

CPD Fitness Course: Hydration for Sport and Exercise Management

The importance of hydration is one of the most underrated essential components of sporting and physical performance. As a consequence, OriGym has created the UK's first REPs accredited hydration for sport and management course where you will learn the physiology of water, effects of dehydration, overhydration and cell function and how this can affect the performance of physical activity.

Designed by leading fitness coaches and trainers, the hydration training course will teach you the best sources of water, environmental factors to consider when setting a workout routine for your clients, the role of sports drinks, symptoms of dehydration and overhydration and how to test for it.

This qualification is ideal for fitness professionals that want to expand their knowledge of liquid nutrition and to help them conduct safe and effective workouts for their clients.
