I was told fans in a group x class helps to circulate the air and maintain a healthier, cleaner environment. Is this not true? Are fans beneficial? I’ve tried to teach without them and I almost passed out after 15 minutes of a 60 minute class. Members think they are losing more weight with the fans off since they sweat more.
it seems that some myths never die. The other day I saw those ‘sweat suits’ in a store 🙁
If you felt almost like passing out after 15 minutes of teaching, you already have the answer whether fans are beneficial. Do not forget that your personal health and safety should be your first concern.
You can point out the risks of overheating, and if your participants still insist, they can put on an extra sweater in your class.
