Exercise and Fitness
Temperature of workout facility
What is the ideal temperature in a fitness center, the one I use has the thermostat set at 69 degrees and has large fans blowing at top speed, as a result I wear a sweat shirt to stay comfortable while exercising.
According to the National Strength and Conditioning Association's "Essentials of Strength and Conditioning", a recommended temperature range for a strength and conditioning facility is 72 to 78 degrees.
