Exercise Etiquette – Clean the Equipment

After using an exercise machine, please wipe the piece of equipment off with a towel. Many fitness centers provide members with spray bottles of cleaning solution to use when wiping down the machine as well.

If you’re sitting on a machine, you may want to place a towel beneath you to help absorb sweat.

While walking on a treadmill, place a towel on the handrail to keep your hands dry.

Failure to clean the equipment contributes to the spreading of germs. Most of all, it’s just disgusting.
