Working out during cold and flu season

(WTNH) – Can working out make your cold or flu better or worse? Edge Fitness Clubs have all the answers you need.

Joshua Takacs, personal trainer says “The flu is going to be a little bit more of a respiratory sickness, so you want to kind of take it easy depending how severe your symptoms are.” The point is to not push your body to extremes. If you’re feeling dizzy, stop working out.

However, exercise can help if your symptoms are mild. Low intensity exercises, such as walking, can help boost the immune system.

Other things that can help boost your immune system are vitamins and supplements, and of course, plenty of sleep.
