Wowgirl, another route you can go if you truly do have issues w/needing to replace electrolytes is to try any of the various electrolyte replacement tabs (S-caps, Endurolytes, etc.). These will give you electrolytes w/o the carbs and calories of Gatorade and other "sports drinks."

I agree w/the others posting above, though -- sports drinks are helpful for people doing intense exercise for extended periods of time. They are absolutely not needed for shorter workouts, usually less than an hour or an hour and a half.
