Does anybody know if I should carry on going to the gym if I'm sick?!

Dumb question you might think but it's just a cough/cold & it sounds a lot worse than it is. I'm not sick enough to be off work & I want to go to the gym but a guy at work said I could be doing myself more harm than good if I'm not well. :sick:

I'll see if I can catch a trainer at the gym when I go tonight to see what they think but I just wondered if anybody had been warned off exercise by their doc/trainer when they've been ill.

The general consensus is that if it's above the neck ie a cold, sniffles, headache etc then it's OK to carry on with your normal exercise schedule. If it's below the neck ie sickness, chesty cough, shivers, muscle aches or squity bum (sorry to have to mention it!) lay off the exercise. I have run with quite bad colds and always been fine afterwards.
