It is if you are dehydrated... usually getting nauseous when working out means you need to increase your water intake. You should keep a water bottle close by and take drinks from it every so often to stay hydrated (use room temp or cool water, ice water can actually make you feel worse sometimes)

It means you are a bit out of shape. I worked out for the first time in a couple years, on Mon. and I felt like throwing up. Being someone who has worked out and been in sports my whole life, this is normal. (until you get your body in shape)
It can be a side effect. When I was in the gym a lot I'd blast my muscles to the point that standing was near impossible & drinking was a joke. Every now and then i felt a pavement pizza working its way up
Any time you feel that bad you have overdone it. You can build up without getting to that point. Once you are in that predicament, your body has to recover and repair itself before it can do anything else. Swigs of water, Not gulping, are essential during any workout, including the pool. Ummm,....but not the pool water, lol! Also be aware of what you eat before working out. I don't know the details but my daughter's self-defense teacher coached her on certain foods to avoid beforehand and she did much better after that.
