Fitness Centers are hotbeds of germ activity. Norovirus, which causes abdominal pain, vomiting, and diarrhea, can survive for a month on the surface of exercise machines.
The fungi responsible for foot infections multiply very rapidly in the shower. As found in locker rooms, microbes like MRSA, can lead to dangerous skin infections.
A recent study in the Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine found rhinoviruses on 63 percent of the gym equipment at the fitness centers they tested.
Researchers also discovered that weight equipment was contaminated significantly more often than aerobic equipment (73 percent versus 51 percent). Even worse, the study found that disinfecting the equipment twice a day didn’t do anything to lower the virus count.
