Encountering someone who claims they don’t sweat that much is kind of like when someone humble-brags that they “don’t break out.” (Congratulations, you think to yourself. Please continue to tell me how perfect your life is.) But what if we told you that when it comes to regularly perspiring, the bragging rights are all yours? It turns out that being more prone to sweating might actually indicate that you’re simply fitter.

A recent article on Mind Body Green notes that physically fit people tend to start sweating at a lower core body temperature—since sweating is its natural mechanism to cool you down, your body does this to sustain a longer workout. Studies over the years have shown that endurance athletes specifically tend to sweat sooner and more profusely than their sedentary counterparts.
