The symptoms you describe all point at low BP (low Blood pressure), probably caused due to excessive loss of water and other electrolytes. you probably are losing more water in working out I recommend you to have glass or 2 of water before hitting for workout. you may also try having lemonade before workout and also after workout. Energy drinks such as redbull etc... are packed with carbohydrates . that won't help a lot. As per a study in London. gatorade , water, orange juice and beer, the marathon runners using beer hydrated and came to homeostasis (maintaining electrolyte balance much quicker as in compared with any other method). just making a reference. I don't intend you to consume beer, WATER AND LEMONADE ARE FINE.
Next Steps
check your blood pressure before and after the workout and try balancing your electrolyte and water levels.
Health Tips
hydrating yourself is the most important thing before and after workout. STAY HEALTHY

Hello...... You should check your blood pressure once... If you had any history of syncopal attack it's significant... some heart problem, some neurological problem, anemia or dehydration could be the cause for this.... Complete checkup is required ,consult general physician in nearest hospital.
