While it is not uncommon to feel faint, nauseous or dizzy while exercising, there are several things you can do to prevent it.

1. Stay hydrated

Drink lots of water in the lead-up to your workout. Sip water regularly while exercising but avoid taking big gulps as it can lead to vomiting.

2. Do not eat straight before a workout

Ideally, you should eat a meal containing carbohydrates ninety minutes before your workout for energy. If you must eat right before a workout, have something small and easily digestible.

3. Sugary or energy drinks

If you do start to feel nauseous, a sugary drink can help raise your blood sugar and ease the faintness.
