I knew the gym was dangerous to my health.

Yes so many germs at the gym. It was getting to be too much to have to spray down and wipe every machine I use at the gym. Left the gym and have a wonderful at home exercise program. I just have to worry about my own germs now.

The only germs I have to worry about on my home gym is dust mites.

I like the idea of going to the gym because when I see other people exercize, it eggs me on to do the same. Since joining a gym I have gone down a clothing size, feel much better both mentally and physically, and I know this is the best investment that I can do-investing in myself! The gym where I belong does provide wipes so most people use them out of consideration for other people who want to use the equipment!

Mine provides the wipes too. If a gym doesn't, you can get them on sale for about a buck for a whole container of them.

Everything we touch in public is going to have potential for major germs....The grocery cart, every door handle, your chair side handles or booth at a restaurant...There is no end to it. I don't know why the gym would be any worse than a million other places.

Didn't we just discuss this germ thing on the Gripes board?

So remember, germs are our friends!
