It’s cold and flu season, and you don’t have time for that. You go to the gym to improve your health, not to get sick. No matter how clean your gym is, watch people work out for just a few minutes and you’ll realize the potential for germ transfer. People touch their faces to wipe sweat, then they touch the equipment. They wear the same gloves every time they come in. Sweat, saliva and mucus all transmit bacteria and viruses.

When you realize the potential for infection, you might wonder if you should just stay home. While there are germs at every gym, physical inactivity can lead to much more serious health conditions like heart disease and some cancers. Here’s how to go to the gym and not get sick.
Let’s just be honest. Tyler has some dirty gyms. Some places have damp bathrooms with upholstered furniture that has been collecting germs for at least ten years. If equipment has dust on it, it hasn’t been cleaned in weeks. A dirty floor and dingy walls are crawling with germs.
Fitness in Training prioritizes clean. When you work out, you’ll notice there’s always someone disinfecting equipment. We want our members to experience their best health all the time. If your membership is with one of the other places, come see what a difference it makes to work out at a gym where you don’t have to worry about germs. Contact us today to find out more.
