Forever Active Cambridgeshire
Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:subscriber],

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of Jenny James. Our beloved instructor passed away at the age of 79. Jenny has worked many years as an S&B instructor for Forever Active.

We will miss her enormously.
Jenny
"We had the pleasure of visiting her class many times; she was a lovely lady. Jenny skillfully taught a sizeable mixed ability group; she always made sure everyone was included and welcome.
One of the things that struck us about Jenny was that she had a lovely, kind, and calm aura about her when teaching, which made her very special and well-matched to the group she was teaching; we will greatly miss her and her loyal class."

Furthermore, we would like to say a massive thank you to the Forever Active instructors. They have taken on additional cleaning before and after classes and learned how to use Forever Active Clubz, and are helping us to contact previous members.

Do you drink enough?


It looks like Summer has finally arrived, with temperatures possibly reaching 27° Celsius this weekend.

We all know how important it is to increase fluid intake when exercising, but staying hydrated is equally important.

The NHS recommended 6-8 glasses (ladies) and 8-10 glasses (men) of fluid a day. Water, milk, sugar-free drinks, including tea and coffee, all count.
What are the symptoms of dehydration?
  • Dry mouth
  • Eyes stop making tears
  • Sweating may stop
  • Muscle cramps
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Heart palpitations
  • Light-headedness (especially when just standing)
  • Weakness
Health benefits of drinking water
  • Improved digestion
  • Lubricate joints
  • Regulates body temperature
  • Helps deliver oxygen all over the body.

Top tips for staying hydrated
  • Start to drink earlier in the day if you do not want to be disturbed by using the toilet at night
  • Drink regularly; constant fluid intake is better than 1 or 2 larger drinks
  • In hot weather, fluid requirements are likely to be higher. Take a bottle of water with you, when out and about, especially on public transport and long walks
  • Fluids can be found in the food you eat. Foods that contribute to your fluid intake include soups, casseroles, milk on cereal and ice cream, and fruit and vegetables.
