When it comes to wellness, the gym is an obvious first choice on the path to good health.
However, an infographic created by FitRated.com, a fitness review site, reveals how many unhealthy germs could be lurking on that fitness equipment. For example, free weights can have 362 times more germs than a toilet seat.
To avoid contracting something that will detract from your wellness plan, FitRated.com offers a few tips:
- Disinfect machines before and after use.
- Don’t walk around barefoot.
- Avoid touching your face.
- Wash your hands and change your clothes right after a workout.
