Sweat Science

Let’s get one thing straight: everyone sweats, or everyone SHOULD sweat. When I teach my classes or when I am working out on my own, you better believe that I look like a hot mess afterwards. My one exercise rule for myself has always been the following: Break a sweat everyday (and not by using the sauna). I still see people walking around aimlessly in the gym, barely moving, with no intention of working hard. I see it in bootcamp class (BOOTCAMP class!!!!!) – people cheating themselves by not taking advantage of the resources available to them and by not pushing to their potential. These are the same people that complain that the class isn’t challenging enough. This is mostly an issue with women, more so than men, because there is this stigma that we have to look cute and presentable at every moment, and there is a misconception that training hard or lifting heavy will make us look like Arnold Schwarzenegger.

THE SCIENCE: People who are physically fit sweat more readily than those who are not fit. Research has shown that inactive women had the lowest sweat rate of all. Physically fit people begin to sweat at a lower core body temperature. Since sweating is our body’s way of cooling off (and keeping from overheating), this allows us to perform longer. Make sure you are exercising within your target heart rate, and ask yourself if you are exerting enough energy during your workout. If you can hold a conversation while you are exercising, you are probably not doing much. YOU are in control of your workout intensity. If you are certain that you are training hard, but you are not sweating, this is a serious medical condition called anhidrosis, which should be addressed immediately.

  2. Thanks for this! I’m tired of training people who aren’t willing to put forth any effort. It’s a waste of everyone’s time. There are so many myths about women training hard that just aren’t true. Just because you lift heavy does not mean that you will be bulky!
