Just like any other gym on the planet, hygiene at B-Town matters. In a nutshell, good hygiene is a BIG deal! Specifically in an environment filled with germs just waiting to attack! Practicing good hygiene habits will not only keep you and others from getting sick, but it will also save you from potential infections. After all: germs are everywhere!
Think about how sweaty (and sometimes even bloody!) we get during training…..yet we rarely remember to wipe everything down when we’re done. Do your friends and yourself a favor and be sure to clean any and all sweat, blood, spit, tears, and other messes off before you leave for the day. Let’s try and do this more often, so we can all have a ‘fresh start’ when we pick up a piece of equipment!
Another thing that goes without saying is to always wash your hands before and after you work out! The gym is, without a doubt, one of the biggest germ and bacterial infested places you can be in. Not even the best cleaning crew in town could keep all the equipment 100% germ-free, 24 hours a day. It’s just not feasible. So people, PLEASE wash your hands before and after each workout if you want to avoid both spreading and contracting illnesses.
Just as a fresh cleansing shower after an intense CrossFit workout is a must to help us rinse off the sweat and become fresh again, the same goes for our workout clothes, accessories, and shoes! PLEASE try not to use the same gym clothes and gear every session. Don’t do it, it’s important to take them home and wash them regularly before wearing them again. You all know about those nasty germs and not-so-sweet smells than can live in your clothes and accessories, too! There is no place for these smells at our box, they need to be eliminated.
Thank you for doing your part at keeping our gym as healthy, clean and fresh as we’d like our bodies to be!
