Para Olympic Swimmer Louise Watkins wearing SwiggiesAs many know dehydration is one of the most common and serious problems faced by anyone taking any form of exercise.

The American College of Sports Medicine recommends drinking 8 to 10 ounces (237 to 296ml) of water before a workout, 8 ounces (237ml) during a workout, and up to 16 ounces (473ml) after a workout. Each cleverly designed Swiggies holds 200ml (adult size) and 150 ml (child size). So you can be confident that you remain hydrated.

Swiggies were originally designed for runners. Now they are used for every activity. Their convenience has no boundaries as you will see in the Uses page and the many testimonials from people in all situations.

You simply fill the Swiggies up with water or a drink of your choice. They strap onto the wrist and have a pull top. They eliminate the need to carry water bottles - which can be cumbersome to carry - and the annoyance when busy of having to stop and remember where you put your drink bottle down!

Both Swiggies supply you with the necessary amount of liquid to complete your workout without the risk of dehydration, plus they are quick and easy to refill if you are working in them for the day. When you are training or in the gym you will no longer need to stop to drink before you finish your program.

Each Swiggies weighs 227 grams, which is the perfect amount for movement without putting stress on your joints. You can wear them over your clothing or, if you prefer, when they are filled with cold water they cool your wrists and keep you from overheating. They can also be frozen.

Swiggies are environmentally friendly. They are also the easiest plastic to recycle, making them a 'green' product. Britain alone use 275,000 tons of plastic and throw away 15 million bottles per day. Plastic bottles clog landfills, and don't degrade. We need to learn to use our own water bottles. If children are encouraged to wear Swiggies from a young age we could be helping create a generation that is more environmentally aware.
