  • Air conditioning.   It's our body's way of cooling itself.

  • Sweating is a way to help regulate the bodies temperature and to get rid of toxins in the body. It's more like the more you work out, the hotter your body gets, the more your core temperature raises and the more your body stops that. It also gets rid of extra water.. Hence why they say DRINK WATER! lol. Anyway, if you have any more questions regarding this, I am more than happy to help!
