HIDDEN DANGERS AT THE GYM

A new report from Consumer Reports Health looks at the hidden dangers in health clubs ranging from poorly maintained pools to germy gym equipment.  The report notes that staph infections, including those that are antibiotic resistant, can spread through shared gym equipment, mats, and towels.  To minimize risk, wipe down gym equipment before and after use with the alcohol spray or wipes most gyms provide.  Place a clean towel over mats used for doing sit-ups, stretching, or yoga. Don't share towels with others. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based sanitizer.  Shower after working out. And if you have a cut or scrape, keep it well covered with a clean adhesive bandage and don't use hot tubs or whirlpools.  

The report, available online, also details how to avoid dirty pools, strained muscles, heart attacks, and eye injuries. A copy of the report is available on request.
