For me therefore, there is no question that isotonic drinks are essential when exerting oneself in hot climates. Whether the same applies when engaged in sporting activities in more temperate climates, I'm not sure.
Except people have been working hard in hot climates for thousands of years before Isotonic drinks were invented so, obviously, they're not essential.
No they are obviously not essential for all those people to whom you refer. Fortunately on this occasion, I did preface my statement with the words "For me".
Unfortunately, you structured the phrases so that "for me" appeared to apply to "there is no question that..." and not "...are essential".
