What is the optimal exercise temp. for the room when you are running on the treadmill.
I am almost always too hot when I workout at the gym. I ask the employees to turn on the air, but by the time it cools down, I,m already dripping with sweat. One employee told me that they weren't supposed to turn it below75. That is way too hot for me. I even take my own large fan with me and put it on high aimed right at me. When I get too hot I can't complete my workout at a level that is ok with me.
Gym climate control can be a constant source of annoyance for members — and staff; it’s really hard to find a temperature that makes everyone comfortable. But 75 degrees is definitely a little high for a cardio training area, especially when it’s busy and the humidity level starts climbing. Generally, a temperature range of 68-72 degrees is recommended for indoor cardiovascular and strength training.
Using a fan can make a huge difference when you’re working out in a warmer environment. If your gym doesn’t provide fans, bring in a small, battery-powered personal fan to clip on the treadmill console. Hand cooling has also been shown to help some people reduce body temperature and stay more comfortable during exercise. If possible, use the treadmill earlier in the day or during off-peak hours, when the air temperature may be a little cooler.
