The gym is a place where you go to get fit and healthy, but could it actually be damaging your health? Any environment with a lot of people coming in and out all the time is likely to be a hotbed for bacteria, but gyms are particularly bad. If people do not follow proper hygiene practices, you can easily pick up an illness from using equipment after them. The changing rooms can be quite unsanitary too.
When the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic swept across the world, our lives were changed in its wake. Guidelines, rules and recommendations concerning social distancing and social isolation came into place to reduce infection rates and this meant that many of us had to give up our usual hobbies and spend a lot more time indoors. As a result, many haven’t been able to go to the gym and we are feeling unhealthy and more unfit than before.
