    Hi I've got a head cold, am wondering should I go to zumba at 6-7 or not???
    Anyone know if we shouldn't do aerobic exercise with head colds? Thanks x

    Regular cold, yes. Fever, chills, muscle aches - no.

    IME exercise when I have a mild cold helps me feel better!

    I was told by my fully qualified personal trainer that if you've got a cold it's not a great idea to do anything too aerobic- it messes with your immune system and is generally not a good idea. Bit of mild exercise a better idea. But it all depends on whether you feel up to it or not really :) xx
