Working out in the summer can be difficult. It’s hot. It’s humid, and exercising outside in that weather can be extremely dangerous. Excess heat can put extra stress on your body, causing your muscles to work in over-drive. Plus, with the humidity in the air, it blocks your sweat from evaporating, keeping your body temperature high. So why not exercise somewhere safe and cool this summer?
Here are a few reasons you should choose the gym this summer:
You’ll sweat better
The more you sweat, the cooler you’ll be. But there’s a catch. When you exercise outside in the humidity, the sweat can’t evaporate off your body—causing your body temperature to rise. By exercising in an air conditioned gym, you will sweat to your full potential!
The pool is cool
Exercising in a pool will keep your body temperature low. Plus, swimming is a workout that works your entire body. Not a fan of swimming laps? Try an aqua class!
You’ll get into a routine
With a gym membership, you won’t have an excuse to skip your workout. You won’t be able to use, ‘It’s too hot’ or ‘It’s raining’ as an excuse. You’ll always have a play to exercise when you have a gym membership.
You’ll have a guilt-free summer
When the weather is nice, you’re more likely to get out of the house, sit on a patio and eat delicious food and drink. You eat out more and take in more calories. If you’re spending your afternoons at the gym, you can enjoy summer without feeling guilty!
There’s always something to do
The gym will always be there for you. When it’s too hot to enjoy the sun, you can hit the gym. When it’s too rainy to go to the beach, you can go to the gym. It’s a win/win!
