The Optical Temperature For A HIIT Calorie Burning Workout

With the announcements of group outdoor exercise being allowed from 29th March, and gyms reopening (7 weeks and counting, people!) temperature specialists Stelrad wanted to ascertain the perfect temperature for a fat burning workout.

50 volunteers were given Fitbits and asked to do the same 20-minute HIIT workout. They did this workout once a day for 8 days, in different temperature conditions each day. 

Calorie burn was measured on the Fitbits, and the participants were asked to record if they felt their exercise performance was hindered by temperature.
