Trying to get in shape? Gyms are breading grounds for germs, often left poorly cleaned. To keep your workouts healthy and germ free, try these tips:
- Have a cut? Cover it and protect.
- Wipe down machines before you use them. Don’t trust others to follow gym etiquette.
- Use only side of the towel on your body, and let the other side touch the gym equipment. If you drop the towel, get a new one.
- Avoid the water fountain. Bring your own water.
After your workout, avoid bringing germs back home with you. Place used gym clothes in a bag that you can easily drop in your washer. Don’t forget to wipe your phone and earphones, or better use a UV light, like PhoneSoap, to kill pathogens (we love to use it nightly).
