As reported in the New York Times, there are no specific health benefits to sweating. We sweat to release heat-nothing more, nothing less. When we physically exert our bodies, our core temperature rises and as a result we perspire to maintain our temperature. Putting yourself in a hot and/or humid environment for exercise will cause you to sweat right through your clothes, but does not indicate an increase in physical exertion or provide any health benefit. It’s the intensity of the workout that brings healthy change to your body.
At HSM, we work out at 72 degrees, so your sweat is the result of the intensity of the workout and your hard work. Our body sculpting moves are designed to not only improve your BMI but to help you feel and look your healthiest. More information on the New York Times artcile can be found here.
