Hydration, hydration, hydration. We all know it’s essential for our bodies to function properly, but it also flushes out toxins, clears our skin, and so many more beneficial side effects. Aside from the perks, hydration is also the basis of everything in our body — there’s a reason why we can survive longer in distress without food than we can without water! But in our normal every day lives, what are the basics of hydration? When, how much, and what kind of H20 should we be drinking? It has been said that we should drink half our body weight in ounces every day, but what if we sweat more than most? And what is in Essentia ionized alkaline water that is so essential to our bodies? Watch this special episode of The Sweat Life to find out.

Aly Teich is Founder and Host of The Sweat Life.
Aly is a native New Yorker who grew up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. She left Manhattan for Madison, Wisconsin to become a proud Badger for four years, and since then has lived on both coasts, traveled around the world…twice, and found herself right back here in The Big Apple.
Aly has always been an active kid, and now grownup (although she still acts like a kid.) She danced her way through the School of American Ballet until her teens, competed on horseback at a pre-Olympic level, lettered in three varsity high school sports, and completed three marathons and numerous triathlons. She’s also an avid skier, golfer, aspiring surfer, and can do a mean belly flop.
Following a ten-year career in television and media — including the Late Show with David Letterman, CBS Television, Tribeca Film, and Conde Nast — Aly switched her focus to health and wellness five years ago when her mother was diagnosed with stage IV ovarian cancer. Trading in her Late Show with Letterman badge for Nikes, Aly made it her goal to help people live healthier lives. In the fall of 2013, she decided to bring all of her experience and passion to one place, The Sweat Life.
