HVAC control for a work out

I am a fitness freak.  I’ve invested in a treadmill, free weights, jump rope, weight bench and yoga mat.  I nearly always devote at least an hour each day to my fitness routine. Because of the rough weather in my local area, it is usually necessary to do my workout inside. The outside temperature often fluctuates dramatically.  We deal with frequent rain, lots of snow, high winds, high humidity, and rely on either the furnace or air conditioner nearly always. To improve comfort and avoid expenses, I upgraded my HVAC unit to zone control. With a separate thermostat installed in each room, I am able to set individual temperatures.  I avoid heating or cooling vacant rooms, and keep the workout area always cooler than the rest of the house. The thermostats come with wifi connectivity which offer access through my smartphone. Even if I’m running on the treadmill, I can adjust the temp with it. I’ve definitely gotten spoiled by the luxury and conveniences of my zone controlled HVAC unit.  I no longer bother running outside. I hate exhaust fumes, uneven ground, bugs, dogs and weather conditions. There is certainly no water, bathroom, or thermostat. While running on the treadmill every day gets a bit boring, I recently brought a small tv down to watch while I work out. It’s better than dealing with the elements..
