    “choose clothes that will keep you covered in every pose.”

    Awesome! And sooo true. I wish more people at my gym had read this article.

    Great guidelines. I left a gym once only after my 1st day because of sanitation. One of the requirements of new members is to have a quick “how-to” of the machines, even if you’re familiar with them. Well, I was working on one machine with one of the gym staff supervising. Afterward, I wiped down the machine (pads/seat/back and grips – everywhere my body made contact.) The employee who was supervising said, “wow you do a real thorough job! no one usually wipes it down that well, you don’t have to wipe it that much.”

    Yea, I didn’t go back. Went to a new gym and people seem to care a lot more about sanitation.

    People who aren’t familiar with gyms might roll their eyes at the idea, but sorry, to me- spending an extra 20 seconds wiping a machine is A LOT better than staph infection.

    If everyone followed the guidelines in this article, going to the gym would be 10x more fun!
