Beat the Heat

Here it is – the heart of summertime and livin’ is easy! Summer activities are roaring and your hours toward increased energy and an improved fitness level pays off when you need it most. Even more than the cold, the heat takes it toll when we don’t take care of ourselves. Regardless your motivation for working out; be it to lose (or maintain) weight, bulk up or improve your health, overall fitness cares for you in unexpected ways. Enjoy this summer with SPF – Strength Protection Factor 100!

 

Time for Fun in the Sun

Think sunscreen is for the pool only? Think again! Tell you what, we like you all so much, we’ve done some of the thinking for you. Enjoy any of the items on the list below? Then you need sunscreen. Protect yourself, friends and family safe by keeping plenty of bottles of your preferred sunscreen on hand this summer.

Swimming, slip n‘ slides and backyard water balloon fights – Sunscreen on = game on. Smart sun-goers, 1. Golden orb of cancer rays, 2.  Take that!

Hiking – Yes, there’s sun in the mountains. You’re actually closer to it. No, we’re not speaking from “Oh my goodness, I am so sunburned!” experience.

Camping – And, don’t forget the bug spray!

Golfing – Don’t forget your ears and the back of your neck. Guys, the top of your heads!

Fishing – Let the stories be about the size of the fish, not the color of your skin.

Water Sports – skiing, kayaking, boating – Oh, the places we‘ll go and how much more fun it will with fully protected skin!

Summer Sports – baseball, running, biking, tennis, soccer, etc. – No better way to spend a beautiful day outdoors than to be active. Points are deducted for not remembering your sunscreen!

Gardening and yard work – Unless you are lucky enough to get it everything done in less than one hour and smart enough to do it early in the morning or in the evening, spray on some SPF to be safe!

Road trips, traveling, vacay and amusement parks – Pack your own sunscreen to save money and stay safe. We can’t be the only ones who have ever paid $8 for a trial-size sunscreen in a pinch.

A day at the zoo? You know what to do! Slather it on and take it with you.

Barbecues, picnics and, last but not least, 4th of July celebrations – Leave the sizzling to the fireworks and the grill-masters, not your skin. Before you order your hotdogs and hamburgers, treat yourself to some sunscreen. Boom!

 

The Best Laid Plans

Even with stringent caution, sunburns happen. Our skin sustains the most damage before we turn eighteen-years old. However, sun damage occurs throughout our lifetime and it is essential to practice diligent sun safety. As we discussed last month, men over 50 are at the highest risk of developing skin cancer. This may come as a surprise to some of you. Many might assume that sunbathing beauties might run the highest risk but it turns out that unprotected skin, exposed to the sun in the course of everyday activities, life, and work has led an unexpected demographic to a generation of skin cancer. As with any cancer, preventive measures and early detection is key.

Skin cancer is caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun and tanning beds. Over exposure to the sun can also cause sunburn, premature wrinkles and eye damage.

Try these tips to stay sun-safe:

When you’re in the sun, wear clothing and a wide-brimmed hat to protect as much skin as possible. Protect eyes with sunglasses that block UV light.

Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen of sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher, and reapply at least every 2 hours. Also, reapply after swimming or sweating.

Limit direct exposure to the sun, especially between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV rays are strongest. Seek shade when you’re out during these hours.

Tanning beds and sunlamps are so retro. The 70s and 80s were arguably awesome but these skin cancer-causing inventions needed to stay in the past and stop inflicting long-term skin damage to their users. Please, use with care.

 

Sunshine + Sunscreen + Water + Shade = A Happy Summertime

Sunburn is not the only damage the sun can cause. Sun poisoning, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke are all effects of too much sun. Drinking water and staying hydrated while participating in outdoor activities or spending substantial time in the heat is the best way to prevent these conditions. Cool baths and showers are the best way to stop heat exhaustion from progressing to heat stroke.

Practice smart sun fun and enjoy a safe, sunburn-free summer!

Manager's Corner

KaBoom!

We’re off to the races and summer is coming in hot! 4th of July celebrations are coming soon and before we know it, poof - summer will be sunsetting. Until then, who’s ready to flex their muscles and enjoy some fun in the sun?

Sun safety is a topic we take time to discuss every July. While talking about skin cancer and sunscreen isn’t as sexy as fireworks, we are committed to your overall health. Speaking of which, going into the summer months with increased endurance and a high energy level helps combat the strain and drain of hot, humid weather. And you thought you were working out to look good in shorts! Fitness fuels us in unexpected ways. If we keep giving to it, fitness keeps giving back.

Going on vacay? Stay in shape while you are away with the Perfit App on your smartphone or tablet.

Come for the Fitness - Stay for the Friends,

Dustin Lewis, General Manager
