| October 11, 2019

Let’s face it – keeping all the surfaces and equipment in your gym clean is a hassle. It can seem impossible for you and your staff to remove dirt, sweat, and germs from the dozens of cardio machines, weights, mats, and benches in your facility.

After all, the cleanliness and appearance of your gym matter a great deal to gym go-ers and members. According to an IHRSA report, it’s essential to member satisfaction and retention. The report found that 90% of members were more likely to renew their membership if their club maintained high standards of cleanliness.

Machines, Weights, Benches and Exercise Mats

Since your members will be working up a sweat and coming into direct contact with these surfaces and equipment, you’ll want to prioritize cleaning and disinfecting machines, weights, benches and exercise mats the most.

This is because 70% of all bacteria found on fitness facility equipment harmful, and 31% of them are largely resistant to antibiotics, as reported by Business Insider. Additionally, free weights have been found to contain 362 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. This is a harsh reminder of the importance of keeping your equipment clean and safe.

In fact, one single wipe can adequately clean an entire piece of equipment. Our thick and thirsty towelettes will help you eliminate wipe waste and decrease costs over time.

Front Desks, Counters, and Tables

Front desks are hotspots for microbes since numerous people touch them on a daily basis, including clients and staff. Desks can contain harmful pathogens, such as Helicobacter pylori, Staphylococcus aureus, and E-coli, to name a few. These areas can become contaminated through a number of different ways, including coughing, touching, and contaminated objects being placed on them such as keys and dirty water bottles.  

Wiping your counters, tables and front desks with 2XL GymWipes Antibacterial will not only kill lurking germs on contact, but will also wipe away smudges, fingerprints, and dust. This keeps them presentable for members when they walk in and protects them from potential infection and sickness. Your employees will also be thankful for 2XL GymWipes Antibacterial, as their chances of getting sick and missing work will be reduced.

Bathrooms and Locker/Changing Rooms


Because these areas have surfaces that come into direct contact with members’ skin and bodily fluids, they are a breeding ground for bacteria. A dirty locker room won’t just have your members heading for the exits and canceling their membership, it will also become a spot where bacterial outbreaks can spread.

Athlete’s foot, E. Coli, Staph, rhinovirus (the common cold), and other pathogens can thrive in these areas if you aren’t following a strict routine cleaning schedule which involves disinfecting. You can have your cleaning crew use GymWipes Antibacterial to kill bacteria that dwell on doorknobs and sink handles, changing benches, and toilet seats.
