Depends on how sick I am, but as a general precaution, I’d advise against going to the gym if you feel any level of sickness. I believe it’s dangerous to go exercise if one is sick, although I don’t know all of the fine points as to why this is the case. I believe you can dehydrate yourself further while working out, since being sick will sap you of a lot of your hydration. I also believe that your temperature will be naturally raised when you’re sick, so increasing it via exercise can lead to potentially disastrous outcomes, like you passing out or fainting during your workout. I could be wrong on both of these points, so just consult a doctor or google all whether or not it’s okay to workout while you’re sick. I’m just throwing out some of my ideas and presumptions out there. Again, I’m NOT an expert and I’m not claiming to know about this topic in-depth. I’m just stating my opinion.
NO! Not only is that super rude to the other members, it's also counterproductive. As much as it sucks, I stay at home a rest. If I really just can't stand it, maybe I'll do some push ups or get a small pump with some dumbbells. I'm somewhat addicted to exercise--in a decent way--but not that much.But I'd never be that rude to my fellow gym goers.
I do, but I do a lot less and I make sure to have plenty of issues and hand sanitiser so no one else gets it.
Rest. Don't strain yourself. Another concern is passing on your illness to someone else in the gym.
Have an opinion?
It depends how ill I am.Sometimes when I get ill, I just sleep a lot, every few hours or so, so if that's the case, then no, I mostly just stay in bed, because I feel really tired and weak, but if I've got a blocked nose or something, I still go.
Absolutely not what's the point in making yourself get even worse. Not to mention you don't have the energy to put into your workout especially if you have a fever
When I’m sick I usually quarantine myself so that I can get better and I don’t spread the shit. If I’m passed all the symptoms but still contagious I might jump on the treadmill to kind of feel better, but not at a gym.
If it's just a mild cold I'm recovering from or something then yeah. I want to sweat it off I guess. It probably doesn't actually help, but I find that I'm feeling better the next day.
I never go to any gym. If I ever work out I do that at home. Why would anybody want to pay someone else when it is they who are doing all the work?
When sick, I don't feel it's right to go places where I will easily spread germs around, and get others sick.
I love the gym takes away all my sickness in 24 hours! Proven medicine but do have protein smoothies post workout.
No because it slows down my recoveryIf i do go its very light. For instance walking is goodJogging heavily is not
No. When you are sick you are meant to rest your body. Working out will actually prolong the illness.
I've tried because im addicted but dont do it!You need to heal and you are just excacberating your symptoms
No your resistance is down from being sick i would not go towork out got to keep your health comes first.
Hell yeah. I love working out when I'm sick. Makes me feel significantly better. Although I probably shouldn't do that
No way! When I’m sick I’m a big baby! I just lay around and have my husband play nurse for me.
I do unless I absolutely can't make it there because I would physically collapse
No it's best to relax, cause you are just going to be pumping that virus around your bloodstream.
I usually work out at home unless a friend invited me to go sometimes
that's dangerous.benching with the fever is not a smart idea.
I'll do some free weights, but I avoid hard and heavy and especially cardio.
No, I choose to rest and try to get healthy sooner.
No. Besides spreading what ever I have around to others it also slows my recovery.
Stay Home Alone and No Contaminate... xx
Depends how sick I am.
Not anymore. 😇
No. I just lie in bed and cry instead.
No, why would I if I'm sick? !
Yes, it helps. 💯
If it's contagious, obviously not
anything above a cough and I stay home.

No. Your body needs time to heal.
Heck no! lol Give my body a break.

Depends on How Sick I'am.
yes i do
it is good because it improves ur immune system but i use it as an excuse to not go which is bad
I don't go to gymsBut, I wouldn't if I did. Why should I get other people sick?
Go to gym? Please don't share the germs with other gym users. Stay home and let yourself recover.
