I am little overweight, 120 kg, from India. When I go to bed after a workout in the gym, say for 30 minutes, I can't sleep as my body begins to heat up.

Are there any remedies? I tried showering, but it didn't help.

    At what time are you exercising, right before going to bed?

    How is your hydration? Are you sweating during your workout? Have you taken your temperature before and after a workout to determine what the change actually is?

When you work out, your heart rate rises and your metabolism reaches a higher rate. After I workout, my metabolic rate remains quite high for over an hour, so I cannot work out effectively in the evening and then go to bed (my problem is that it makes me very alert, the heat is less of an issue in Scotland:-)

So my solution is to work out first thing in the morning - this also gives me a boosted start to the day. See if you can change your workout time to the morning - it may make all the difference you need.
