A recent Canadian study has revealed alarming results about gym hygiene. According to the study, gym mats and showers are the biggest culprits when it comes to the presence of germs in gym environments. The study, conducted in the Greater Toronto Area, included nine gyms from three different chains.

Increased germs on gym mats
The consumer program Marketplace analyzed various aspects of gyms, including exercise equipment, restrooms, locker rooms and the shower areas. Remarkably, the exercise mats were found to contain almost eight times more bacteria than yoga balls, barbells and dumbbells.
