As lockdown eases, Gymsters around the country can’t wait to get back to the gym but many are wondering if it's safe, or wise, to return as soon as they openLONDON, LONDON, UK, March 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ --
HYGIENE STANDARDS IN GYMS
Always make sure that your gym has an effective cleaning schedule in place and good hygiene practices in particular dispensers containing antibacterial wipes dotted around the gyms to ensure you have these available.
Each gym will have its own specific rules regarding distancing, numbers allowed in and wearing of face masks but with sanitizer and wipes on display, you can ensure your equipment is clean before you start.
Many gyms now have monitors on display which shows when last cleaning took place which is ideal.
GYM EQUIPMENT CAN BE HARD TO SANITISE
If using Dumbbells, kettlebells, or any equipment, these have many areas that different people touch/grasp and need to be sanitised carefully to ensure germs are killed AND removed.
SANITISE. WIPE AWAY. WAIT. REPEAT
This is a simple process which if followed can help ensure that any germs or viruses are removed before you begin your session.
Sanitised your hands (with sanitiser or wash thoroughly). Then use anti bacterial wet wipes (ideally from a protected dispenser) to wipe away any residue - germs, virus etc and then wait until the equipment is completely dry before using. Then repeat the process when you have finished use.
It is hoped that the person before you will have been through the same process, but by repeating you can be confident that you have sanitized for your workout.
HAVE YOU BEEN VACCINATED?
