Importance of a Clean Gym

A clean gym is paramount when it comes to training or practicing physical therapy or personal training. It's not just about how it looks. A clean space is of utmost importance for health as well as for aesthetics. Today, we're talking about why a clean gym is a better gym.

Why a Clean Gym Matters

There are some old school lifters out there who think a grungy gym has a certain appeal. There's an atmosphere of hard work and sweat that they associate with a gym that's a little on the gritty side. However, that kind of a gym can lead to health issues. Gyms are places that have a huge amount of foot traffic. People come and go all day long. With them, they bring their sweat, of course, but they also bring their germs. A clean gym is a gym that's as free as it can be of pathogens as well as odor, so it's definitely a big deal.

When you walk into a clean gym, you can feel comfortable knowing that you and your clients will be breaking a sweet from exercising not from a fever. It also makes it far more comfortable for clients when you ask them to get on the ground for stretching or core training. All in all, a gym that's taken care of makes coworking gym space for rent more attractive to both you and your clients, whether it be for the aesthetic of it or the health benefits.

How We Keep Our Gym Clean

SkyHealth NYC takes gym cleaning seriously. We have a daily routine of vacuuming debris, washing floors, wiping down equipment, thoroughly cleaning the shower, bathroom, and kitchen facilities, and wiping down equipment and benches. We also have stations throughout the gym for our trainers, therapists, and members to wipe down their equipment after use. Through the use of our scheduled and spot cleaning, we do our best to make our space as clean and healthy as possible. We also have a "shoes off policy" with the option to sanitize your sneakers after walking through the streets of NYC.

How You Can Help Keep Your Gym Clean

Whether you're a client, physical therapist, or personal trainer, and whether you come to our gym or another, there are things you can do to ensure that your gym remains as clean and healthy as possible. When you take these steps, you help protect yourself, the other gym members, and the gym itself. Clean gyms tend to have better reputations, which means you're helping keep your gym going strong.

  • Wipe down your equipment and bench after use.
  • Treat gym equipment with respect.
  • Clean up after yourself.
  • Take your sneakers off or sanitize them prior to entering.

These four simple steps help keep the entire gym clean and welcoming for everyone from guests to practicing professionals, which helps keep the gym as a whole more successful and more likely to be around for the long haul.
