Hi wickjg,

According to the "Health/Fitness Facility Standards and Guidelines" of
the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), the recommended
temperature is 72 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit.

Source:  "Locker Rooms with a Winning Touch" by Christina Gandolfo on
the website.

Another locker room article on the same site quotes the same recommendation.
