What the.....

Ok so I have joined a gym out here in northern Cali and am noticing about 50% of the folks out here working out in hoodies, sweat shirts, jogging pants, long sleeve shirts and so forth.  Some even where hats or the hood of the hoodie while working out.  As if I don't sweat enough these folks are wearing winter gear.  Now I know that the temps are a bit cooler here, but not that much cooler.  I also know that if you sweat more the work out is better, come on give me a break....can someone else give some incite as to why a person wear winter gear would be in the gym working out in it?

My work out today was great.  I really enjoyed the wet new favorite thing.


  1. I have a friend who ran outside in the summer wearing layers. For some reason they think sweating like a pig will make you lose weight faster. Water weight maybe but actual weight loss....not so much.

  2. Yeah, I think it's the thought that you'll lose more, but it's got to just be water loss through perspiration. If the person is hydrating during and after working out, it's not likely to make any difference. Of course, that's just my speculation - I could be full of crap. :)

  3. Because they want you to resuscitate them. Or they are just plan crazy. Ain't no how...I'm working out in winter wear...unless it's winter. LOL.

    Glad you are enjoying the wet sauna.
