Good reminders for hand and personal hygiene anywhere you go. You just don't know what is out there.

This was a one-time event. She went back the next day and had no problems. The gym ended up writing up and incident report, just in case, bc her hands are her livelihood and when she left they gym she couldn't even bend her fingers.

I sometimes get "exercise induced hives." Does your friend only get hives at this particular gym?

I'm part of a universe of possibilities, I'm capable of more than I know. The power of God, the power of love, the power of doing my best until it is something greater than I have ever imagined... this is what keeps me focused on my goals!

Management at the gym did question if she could be allergic to the spray they have, but it's the same one they've had since we started in March, so we don't think it's that. Who knows, but it's a good thought for others who may have issues. Those cleaners are strong, that's for sure, and good thing!

ILL!!!!!!!

Enjoy life to the "nth" power! If you have goals and aspirations set forth to do them now. Life is too short. Like Nike says...."Just Do It"

Procrastination is not an option. Never say never. Tomorrow is not promised to us. Enjoy!! As my cousin says...."Do you"!!!

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Luckily the fitness club I go to has a strict rule to take an anti-bacterial wipe (provided) and wipe down any equipment after use.

Good heads up!!! I am a Medical technician and I would add to that to 1st and foremost before doing anything after a workout is WASH YOUR HANDS!!!! Because you do things like rub your nose, or wipe sweat off your face or anything that you are not really paying attention to and spread things. That goes for colds and flus as well. They linger on surfaces for 24-72 hours after the fact!!! I would also go as far to say bring your own little bottle of lysol or the lysol wipes to wipe things down as well. Be careful! Thanks TXJULES!!! emoticon

Hey all. Just wanted to give you a heads-up on what happened to a training buddy of mine at the gym today. She was jogging as usual on the treadmill and her hands started to itch. They soon broke out into a full-blown allergic reaction that started to works its way up her arms. She's better now-- the itching has stopped and the swelling is going down after going home and taking some Benedryl. We've been to this gym a million times and always clean our equipment, but I know for a fact MOST people don't! So please, please, PLEASE clean the gym equipment BEFORE and AFTER your workouts, for your health and for the health of others.
