Fitness tips:

1. TIME: Try to exercise in the early morning or late afternoon if possible. Avoid running between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

2. CLOTHING: Wear light-colored, performance-wear wicking materials. Stay away from cotton and don’t go shirtless.

3. HYDRATE: Drink plenty of water before, during and after a workout.

4. ADJUST YOUR GOALS: You simply cannot go as fast in the heat.

5. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY: Be mindful, if you stop sweating, that is a sign of trouble.

6. COOLING VEST: Elite athletes cool down before competition with cooling vests.
