What is the best water bottle for working out?

Whether you're going for a run or at the gym, ensuring you have the right water bottle is essential to maximise your workout. Research has shown that losing 2% of your body weight in fluid can decrease your performance by up to 25%. Staying hydrated during your workout is key to ensuring you’re fit, healthy and most importantly it ensures that you can get the most out of your workout. Turtle can is designed specifically for those who lead an active lifestyle and is the perfect water bottle for any workout routine. Here we will be demonstrating how the design functionality and characteristics of a Turtle Can perfectly unite to suit the everyday needs and preferences of anyone looking to keep fit.


Hydration is one of the most important aspects of your workout which is why it is recommended that you drink 15 to 20 ounces of water, one to two hours before working out and another 8 ounces every 15 minutes during your workout. Water not only helps to give you energy and regulate your core temperature during a workout, it will also help to burn calories if the water is cold enough. Turtle Can stainless steel bottles can help you reduce fatigue, muscle cramps and other symptoms of dehydration before, during and after your workout. Each bottle is built using nontoxic, BPA free stainless steel to ensure your water remains fresh, clean and chemical free. Water bottles can easily become unsanitary with a study demonstrating that 83% out of 30 used plastic bottles at the gym were contaminated with bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus (found in 27 percent of the bottles) and E. coli (found in 17 percent). Bacteria will often cling to rougher surfaces which is why stainless-steel Turtle Cans are much more hygienic containing no pores or cracks, there is nowhere for bacteria to create a biofilm to grow in.


Wherever you’re working out, your water bottle will need to be sturdy as it is likely to be kicked around or knocked over- particularly if you’re in the gym! You will find that many facilities no longer allow glass water bottles due to the safety hazard the present if they smash. Turtle Cans are built using lightweight stainless steel which is extremely robust and made to last a long time which means unlike plastic or glass bottles you won’t have to worry about it smashing or breaking when knocked over or placed in your bag. The smooth insulating coat is also perfect for working out as it is condensation proof, meaning it wont slip out of your hand even when perspiring.


Whether you are working out at the gym, out on the track, at home or anywhere else in the world, Turtle Can bottles are the perfect size to carry round. Each Turtle Can is able to hold up to 500ml/17oz of liquid- the ideal amount to keep your hydrated during your workout without being so large that it becomes cumbersome. Turtle Cans are built to fit perfectly water bottle cages on workout equipment, in car cup holders and to slide easily into any bag on the way to work out!

When compared with plastic and other materials used in creating water bottles, the impact of stainless steel on the environment is minimal particularly the more it is used and recycled.


Keeping your water at the optimum temperature is key in aiding your performance during a workout. Naturally, as your work out, your body temperature will begin to rise, and fluids will be lost through sweat and through your breath. Drinking cold or chilled water will help to delay this sudden rise and keep your core temperature where it needs to be. Turtle Can’s stainless-steel double wall vacuum insulated bottles will ensure that your water can remain cold throughout your workout. Each Turtle Can is designed to ensure your water stays at the optimum temperature, keeping your drink cold for up to 24 hours.


Exercise requires a water bottle that is functional which is why the design of a Turtle Can focuses on accessibility and ease of use. During your workout, you will need to have quick access to your water bottle to rehydrate and carry on exercising. Whilst many water bottle top designs are flawed in that they only allow a small amount of water out at a time, the mouth of a Turtle Can has been designed to remove this problem. Each stainless-steel bottle allows individuals to easily control the flow of water to quickly rehydrate.  The wide mouth also makes refilling your water bottle extremely easy whether its at a tap or drinking fountain, there should be more than enough room to avoid spillage. Plus, the stainless-steel cap creates a vacuum seal every time to not only keep your drink the optimum temperature but to ensure there are no leaks.
