I try to be as consistent with my workout regiment as I can manage to be. I have certain methods to keep me motivated during my workout. This may seem unusual to say, but I don't think exercising in the air conditioner is better than exercising with little to no air conditioning. Now, hear me out. Personally, when I am under the air conditioning, my body wants to go into relaxing mode. For me, the air conditioning is something I want to step back into after a good workout. Whether it's cardio or strength exercises, air conditioning just makes me want to relax. However, if there is no air conditioning, it helps me get in the zone for a great workout. Now obviously, too much heat is a little too oppressive for working out. Also, I would definitely advocate having plenty of water on hand to stay hydrated. However, when I'm sweating more because it's warmer, and the cool, refreshing air conditioner is not giving me relief, I feel more motivated, and my workouts feel more effective. When my workout is finally done, there's nothing quite like stepping back into the air conditioner and getting a cool, refreshing drink. I suppose the air conditioner becomes a sort of reward for getting through my workout and giving it my all! So you see, I actually really enjoy climate control, and it does keep me comfortable, it's just that I don't necessarily want to be in a state of comfort when I'm working out. I think it's actually counterproductive.
