    Ideal Gym Temperature

    Quick question, in weather like this (50-60 degree high), what would be the ideal gym temperature?

    Just under 70. I like to get under the cool air vents, personally.

    70 is comfortable for me.

    I think somewhere around 68 is good because it can't be too cold or too warm. Muscles need heat to stay loose and avoid cramping. Too much heat is pass out temperature if your doing excessive cardio.

    70 is the upper limit for me. a little under that is pretty good. there is a back door at my gym and i love when its open and a nice breeze comes in

    My preference is around 65.

    At the gym where I go there are a number of large ceiling mounted fans. When I'm doing cardio, I find it better to use a machine that's in range of one of the fans. When I'm doing weights I hardly notice the temperature at all.

    Fire the cannons.

    Cold enough that every breath feels so refreshing it takes you away from the pain, but not so cold that it becomes distracting.
