Like many people, one of my resolutions is to get healthier. One way to do that is to join the gym, but with a lot of places still under certain restrictions, it’s hard for a lot of people to go to a public gym.
While most gyms are pretty strict on their cleaning anyways, it is not always easy to ensure a sanitized environment or equipment between each use. Employees can only do so much, and signs requesting that each user sanitize their equipment after use can be easily ignored.
Gym equipment does get cleaned frequently, but due to the warmer environment, high traffic, and an uncomfortable amount of body fluids often left behind on equipment, there is a lot of potential for germs to make a comfortable home.
According to FitRated, “We gathered bacteria samples from 27 different pieces of equipment at three different gyms to get an idea of how many germs you may encounter when you touch a treadmill, exercise bike, or free weight. And it turns out the average treadmill, exercise bike, and free weight are all teeming with germs – more than 1 million per square inch apiece. To put it in perspective, we compared the bacteria levels we found on various gym equipment with the number of germs typically found on everyday items. The average exercise bike harbors 39 times more bacteria than a cafeteria tray. Typical free weights have 362 times more germs than a toilet seat. And the treadmill you’re running on averages 74 times more bacteria than a typical public bathroom faucet.”
Most gyms provide disinfecting wipes or sprays for the equipment as well as hand sanitizer for your hands between each piece of equipment. But, if you want to feel absolutely sure that you’re killing all those germs, use the LiViliti Sanitizing Wand!
