Staying Fit in a Changing Climate: How FitTrack's Smart Scale Helps You Adapt and Thrive

We celebrated Earth Day this week, the day of the year when raising awareness around the importance of protecting Earth’s natural resources becomes so important and climate change is the talk of the town.

But have we ever wondered how climate change can affect our health and wellbeing?

As the planet warms, the effects of climate change are becoming more apparent, not just in the environment but in our daily lives - including how and when we exercise. Understanding these changes can help us adapt our fitness routines to maintain our health and well-being despite challenging conditions. Here's how climate change is reshaping our exercise habits and how FitTrack's smart scale can help us stay on track.

1. Extreme Temperatures Limit Outdoor Activities

One of the most direct impacts of climate change on our exercise routines is the increase in extreme temperatures. Hotter summers and unexpected heat waves make it dangerous to partake in outdoor activities, especially during peak heat hours. High temperatures can lead to dehydration, heatstroke, and other heat-related illnesses, particularly during strenuous activities like running or cycling.

2. Increased Rainfall Interrupts Regular Exercise

Climate change also affects precipitation patterns, leading to increased rainfall in many regions. This change can sporadically interrupt outdoor exercise schedules. Continuous or heavy rain not only makes outdoor surfaces slippery and hazardous but can also demotivate even the most enthusiastic athletes from stepping outside, thus disrupting regular physical activity.

3. Declining Air Quality Affects Respiratory Health

Another significant impact of climate change is the decline in air quality. This is a major concern for outdoor exercisers, such as runners and cyclists, who may find their performance hampered and their health at risk from prolonged exposure to poor air conditions.
