There are many factors that can influence the hydration status of sports people/athletes, such as social activities, diet, climate, and activity level. And it is important for an athlete to be well hydrated prior, during and post exercise, as dehydration can lead to a decrease in performance and also can increase the risk of heat illness. Research has shown that being dehydrated by a fractional 2% of body weight or greater can have a significant effect on performance.

Tri Alliance and Darryl Griffiths (Mr Shotz) from Shotz Sports Nutrition will be conducting a seminar on fluid loss and hydration. The purpose of this event is to educate athletes about hydration and its importance for producing optimal performance. Weight in this instance will be used in order to determine how much sweat was actually lost during the training session.
