Hydration Testing

Hydration in sport can often be overlooked by athletes although its importance is well known for maximal performance and recovery. Drinking enough water is also an essential aspect for maintaining a healthy life to increase energy, mood, concentration levels and aid in all day-to-day activities.

Hydration Testing is important because it determines an individual’s body fluid balance. It is more useful to athletes as disturbances to their body’s fluid balance can severely impact sports performance and in serious conditions can be hazardous to health. Testing hydration levels specific to your sport is an effective way to monitor your overall sweat losses to identify how much you need to drink. Our hydration test also informs you of your sodium sweat losses so you know what you need to drink to stay well hydrated.

If you’re a serious athlete then doing a hydration test can finally take away any guesswork for what and how much you should be drinking during training and competition.
