Gym Germs – Wipe Those Machines Down!

Posted by in News

germsI love that everyone at the gym is being very diligent on wiping down their cardio and weight equipment.  This will definitely help prevent the spread of the flu.  However, I see lots of people just cleaning the areas that you lean or sit on so I want to remind you of a couple of areas that need attention.

When you wipe down a machine, make sure you clean:

1) Many weight machines have handles.  Wipe these down!

2) If you use a weight machine, make sure you clean the stick, lever, knob that adjusts the resistance.

3) The handles of dumbbells and barbells.

4) Lay a towel on any shared yoga mat or similar item.

Always wash your hands after a workout!  These precautions will help to keep us all healthy this winter!
