Unless you're living under a rock, you are aware of the increased discussion about germs, viruses and communicable disease control preventive measures. Some of you have asked us what we do at the gym to help reduce disease transmission. We are doing what we always do to keep the gym clean and we wash our hands after every class (and so should you.)
We mop the floors with a disinfecting cleaner such as Simple Green and we vacuum in between classes as needed. We clean the bathrooms, including the showers, with a disinfecting cleaner.
We clean all of the barbells, kettlebells, dumbbells and the rig with Simple Green and/or Lysol wipes. We also wipe down doorknobs and light switches. You may recall that during Femme Fatale Week we had you wipe down your wall balls with Clorox wipes.
We provide Lysol and Clorox wipes for your use and you're welcome to use them after every class. If you sweat, snot or bleed on any of our equipment you are kindly asked to wipe up your mess. If you're so inclined, you're welcome to wipe down your equipment before and after you use it.
You can read about a study of bacteria on gym equipment here.
While we love seeing all of you high five each other at the end of class, if you're concerned about disease transmission you're encourage to knuckle or elbow bump your teammates instead.
If you are sick, please message your Coach and stay home. We Coaches have a bank of at home workouts and we are happy to program something for you until your sniffles stop. Just be aware that we do expect you to send us your results for these at-home workouts. You could even post your results to our private Facebook group. Why not start with Tabata Plank Walk-ups? It was yesterday's at home workout for our March into Spring Healthy Lifestyle challenge.
Remember, germs are all around you. The best defense is to wash your hands regularly and especially so after every class. We have very nice hand soap at all of our sinks, please use it.
