Play It Safe
An Ounce of Caution Prevents Heat-Related Illness
The four most common heat-related emergencies are cramps, fainting, exhaustion, and heat strokes. These illnesses occur when the body can no longer cool itself properly.
Avoid Injury When You Exercise
Staying active—getting regular exercise—is one of the best ways to minimize the effects of aging. Exercise helps prevent chronic illness and loss of function in older adults.
Dehydration and Heat Stroke
Dehydration and heat stroke are two very common heat-related diseases that can be life threatening if left untreated.
No Sweat? No Good!
Even if you're fairly well conditioned, overdoing it may lead to heat cramps, heat exhaustion or heatstroke, causing the body to lose its ability to sweat.
Sprained Ankles Need Attention
When you sprain an ankle, one or more ligaments on the outside of your ankle become stretched or torn.
What’s Up with Shortcut Workouts?
There are plenty of options to choose from if you want to get fit but don’t have 45 to 60 minutes daily to devote to exercise. But there’s a catch to taking shortcuts.
