Common Hygiene Hazards Found in Gyms and Fitness Centres

Gyms and fitness centres are sweaty and humid places – providing ideal conditions for bacteria, fungi, moulds, and viruses (on surfaces). If a gym or fitness centre isn’t cleaned regularly, patrons run a higher risk of contracting the following common health ailments.

Athlete's Foot (tinea pedis)

Athlete’s foot (tinea) is a fungal skin infection of the feet. It’s characterised by red, itchy, and scaly skin. Athlete’s foot is often contracted from contaminated bathroom / changeroom floors and shower pans. Most cases of athlete’s foot are treated with an over-the-counter antifungal cream.

Nail Fungus (onychomycosis)

Untreated foot fungus can ultimately infect the toenails – particularly if they’re already damaged or ingrown. Symptoms of nail fungus include discolouration, thickening, and crumbling of the nail. Nail fungus is difficult to treat and may require a doctor to prescribe oral antifungal medication.

Staph Skin Infections (staphylococcus)

Staph infections on the skin are easy to contract in settings where equipment is shared, such as gyms and fitness centres. Most staph infections are caused by S. aureus bacteria – resulting in boils, abscesses, impetigo, or cellulitis. Serious staph infections may require medical intervention.

Important Note: staph skin infections can also be caused by group A streptococcus (GAS) bacteria.

COVID-19, Norovirus, and Influenza

COVID-19, norovirus, and influenza are common viruses that can be contracted from hard, non-porous surfaces that are contaminated, such as gym equipment, door handles, bathroom taps, and toilet seats. Bed rest and fluids are usually required to overcome COVID-19, norovirus, or influenza.

Warts (human papillomavirus)

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is found on contaminated surfaces in gyms, fitness centres, and swimming pools – resulting in common (verruca vulgaris), flat, or plantar warts. These warts are usually harmless but can spread to other parts of the body. Warts are highly treatable.

Other Nasties

Surfaces contaminated with escherichia coli (E. coli), salmonella, or shigella bacteria are a potential hygiene hazard in gyms and fitness centres. Escherichia coli (E. coli), salmonella, and shigella bacteria are often found on toilet seats and bathroom taps, causing gastroenteritis (gastro). Black mould (stachybotrys chartarum) is another potential hygiene hazard.

Regular professional cleaning can help reduce these common hygiene hazards found in gyms and fitness centres.
