Do you enjoy training in the hot summer months or the cold winter months?
Has to be the winter for me - prefer cooler climate than hot and humid.
Difficult one - from a climate point of view it has to be winter for me BUT I presume the excess heat makes it easier to lose weight and tone up?
I prefer training when cold. That way i control by what i wear how warm i want to feel. When its very warm you dont realy have a choice.
Training in higher temp will make you lose weight but its water weight mainly. As far as toning up heat wont do that. Only structured diet with weight resistance excercises will get you toned.
I presume you are likely to replace the bulk of water weight you lose in the heat when you drink water to quench your thirst?
You will put the water lost back when you drink. Id say over a long period of time training in a warm climate could help with losing actual body weight but i dont think it is something that would be easy to track with all the other factors involved with training such as diet and cardio.
Would you body eventually acclimatise to the new conditions?
When I go to the gym I prefer a "chilled" atmosphere - too hot and I am sweating before I even start!
Remember, whether working out in hot or cold climates you still need to warm up (and warm down?).
