It may be hard to believe most days here in Scotland but summer has arrived and for many people that means looking forward to a holiday in the sun, or just feeling encouraged to spend more time outdoors in the fresh air. With summer holidays comes swimwear, and after being wrapped up in winter woollies all year, stripping down to a bikini or shorts can be a bit of a daunting prospect for most people. Panic sets in and the long forgotten New Year fitness regime is suddenly back in focus, gym memberships are re-established and salads are on the menu for the foreseeable future.
Summer is the perfect time to take up outdoor exercise such as cycling or a running challenge and the team at Lucozade Sport believe that leading a more active lifestyle with regular exercise can lead to a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life. That’s why they have launched the Made to Move campaign, to help encourage people to move more – they’ve even set a goal of helping 1 million people to move more by 2020.
Lucozade Sport, an isotonic sports drink, can compliment your summer fitness and nutrition regime by providing you with carbohydrates and electrolytes to enhance hydration and help maintain performance during prolonged endurance exercise. Not only is it formulated to replace what your body loses through sweat, it provides enough energy to allow you to continue to perform – and cross that finish line!
How does it work? “Lucozade Sport provides a source of fluid but importantly contains both carbohydrate and sodium. The carbohydrate, along with the sodium, helps your body absorb fluid more effectively. The carbohydrate is also a source of energy during this exercise. Lucozade Sport, as a carbohydrate-electrolyte drink, therefore can help maintain fluid and electrolyte balance, as well as endurance exercise performance.”
Lucozade have also have launched the Made to Move app which syncs with your fitness tracker (such as a Fitbit) track your steps each day or how much you move while cycling and you can even redeem your Lucozade Sport bottle codes for a chance to win prizes such as gym passes or free entry into Tough Mudder. At Excel Vending we love to promote a variety of products in our vending machines and encouraging people to be more active is very much in line with our own values.
