I sweat anytime I start to do something other than a slow walk...cleaning the house, riding my bike, during strength training, and walking from the car to my classroom at school all make me sweat. I believe that it maybe because of how often I workout. My brain senses an increase in movement and says workout time, time to keep cool!
I sweat with yoga, and I sweat like a maniac during a good walking workout. To not sweat while walking it would either have to be cold out or I would have to walk a bit more slowly than I would prefer. Also, people don't want to get wet due to sweat but they will jump into a pool? Either way you will need to shower after!
If I don't sweat I don't feel like I am getting a decent workout. I know that isn't true, but I just feel that the sweat is indicative of working hard. If I go to the gym (haven't done that in a long time) I can't stand it if it is too cool in there or if there is a fan blowing on or near me. I want to be HOT and sweaty. Cold and sweaty to me indicates illness. One problem I do have is that I do like to be hot and sweaty when I work out, and I do usually work out at lunch time - I don't like going back to work all sweaty! Gross.
I get sick to my stomach when I sweat. It causes me to break out in weird flushes that hurt- Fibromyalgia may be to blame-- seems like all my weird quirks are part of the disorder.
I sweat with pilates, yoga etc.
Water work helps tons tons tons, but I have to be careful not to overdo. Sure wish I could get some professionals to help me with what would work-- but insurance issues cause the medical providers to pull back rather than broaden help. Sigh.

i have arthritis in both hips. i am 54 years old. can some one tell me what would be good exercise for my adomen?
I don't know about "not sweating" but one of my favorite activities is water jogging and using my aqua weights. I'm fortunate to have access to a couple of pools that are water walking/jogging courses with an area for using weights or doing water aerobics. Because I have been lucky enough to inherit arthritis in my hips - yuk - which was made worse by my falling flat on my back last summer, I do water exercises because they are less stressful on the joints. As for sweating ? I don't know - how can you tell if your sweating when you are in water up to your chest ?
