Commercial cleaning services can look after the general facilities with gym cleaning. But the gym patrons will still have to take precautions when using equipment. Every item at the gym is used several times per day be a long string of people, each of whom leaves a trail of perspiration. To prevent infections or simple rashes it is best to be proactive and clean equipment as it is used, or where possible to bring items for personal use.
Use you own mat for yoga of other exercises. Mats used by other people will accumulate other people’s perspiration, and this will not be looked after by the cleaning staff. At most they might occasionally be sent to the laundry. Mats only grow worse when left stored with other mats.
Your own mat can be kept as clean as you wish it to be. Like a towel you should bring and clean your own.
Bacterial wipes and equipment
Everything from exercise bikes to weight machines will have bacteria and perspiration from previous patrons. Handles and seats are the worst offenders. And as exercise produces a lot of sweat even the cleanest individuals will leave equipment with hygiene problems.
Antibacterial wipes will remove 99% of the germs on equipment.
Any decent gym will be far better than the situation you remember in high school locker rooms. But remember to keep you own locker clean lest you recreate the lazy teenager situation. Towel and socks left in a locker go stale very quickly in the dark, moist air of an enclosed locker.
A basic notion, but we should wash before and after we use the gym. Hand sanitiser is a good idea.
Covering Cuts and Scrapes
If we have an open wound it will be very prone to infections. A band aid will go a long way to preventing contact with bacteria.
Wear thongs in the showers to prevent fungal infections.
