Indoor plants and training
We have just seen: plants increase productivity, which is a considerable benefit for those who can only spend a few hours a week on training and therefore want to get the most out of it. By absorbing the background noise and airborne toxins that cause various physical problems, especially headaches, the plants allow you to concentrate on what you are doing and engage in training without distractions or discomforts.
In addition, plants seem to have a very positive effect of strengthening the immune system. It has been studied especially in a hospital setting: by reducing stress and anxiety levels, plants can help patients recover from a traumatic illness or episode. Similarly, there are those who have proposed to introduce green elements, such as plants or even instruments made of natural materials, in the training of athletes who need to recover quickly after a particularly demanding performance or training, if it is not possible to train outdoors.
Between swimming pools, showers and saunas, gyms and fitness centres tend to have very high levels of humidity in the air. Plants, it was said, are extraordinarily useful in regulating humidity, but they can help to make gyms healthier and more pleasant places in another way: training equipment emits CO2, whose levels naturally increase as the number of people present increases, and it is clear that in this even a plant can make a difference, significantly improving the quality of the air.
