Abstract : Exercise in either hot or cold climates, at high altitude or in air polluted environments can reduce exercise tolerance and physical performance. This report discusses environmental considerations for exercise. It reviews the general physiological responses at each environmental extreme and presents special considerations for exercise in hot and cold climates, at high altitude and air polluted areas. It also discusses, albeit briefly, medical management of persons who develop heat, cold, or high-altitude related illnesses. The report concludes with a discussion of the interaction of the individual environmental extremes on exercise and physical performance.
