somashekar,

It depends on the climate and weather conditions. Air conditioning may be necessary to fulfill the environmental criteria such as recommended herein:

I would certainly want AC in the gym I use. Given the human body tends to overheat when exercising, having climate control helps the individual to avoid heat stress by the temperature equalization effect of both cooling and de-humidifying the atmosphere with air conditioning.
