When at the gym it’s very important that you take time to clean each workout space before you use the equipment. While you may just want to get to work remember if you get sick from dirty equipment you may miss more workouts than the few seconds it takes to wipe down your area. Treadmills are one of the most important machines at the gym to clean.

Each time you get on a treadmill it should be cleaned. At most popular and respected gyms around the United States, they will have wet cleaning wipes placed around the gym. If you have a workout bag or a fanny pack, pack a few wet wipes of your own just in case the gym is out or doesn’t have any in your workout area.
