Public places are full of germs and bacteria that can cause  infections. So are gyms or public parks that have parallel bars and monkey bars. Prevent contagious diseases, infection and skin problems with these gym hygiene tips shared by our Fitness expert and Strength and Conditioning coach, Arnav Sarkar.

 

Personal care and hygiene habits for public gyms and parks:

“If you are in a public gym, then you should consider using a towel since you will be sharing equipment that others have used,” says Arnav Sarkar. Besides carrying a towel here are a few tips you can keep in mind to prevent diseases.

Carry hand sanitiser with you to prevent contracting bacteria at the gym. Also, wash your hands thoroughly before and after your workout.  If possible, try and sanitise the gym equipment before using it.
