How to Properly Disinfect Fitness Equipment



No matter how new or advanced your fitness center is, your clients aren’t going to want to use dirty, germy, sweat-covered machinery. In addition to posing health risks, failure to adequately clean your gym's fitness equipment can cause your members to become unhappy. This can seriously harm your fitness center's reputation, client retention rate, and profitability. In some cases, it can even open up liability for your client's injuries or illnesses.


Here are some tips for correctly sanitizing excursive equipment in your gym.

You can’t depend on your members to keep your machinery clean and q quick wipe-down with a swear rag just isn’t going to cut it.

Machinery should be cleaned regularly in order to prevent dirt, grime, and sweat from getting into electronic components such as heart rate trackers.


When it comes to effective disinfectants, affordable solutions, and environmentally friendly cleaners, you can have it all (without breaking the bank).

Getting a professional cleaning company or educating your staff members on proper etiquette can lengthen the life of your equipment, increase your member's satisfaction and save your business thousands over time, but most importantly, make your gym a safer place to exercise.
