As people make New Year’s resolutions to exercise more, a new study by the Better Business Bureau reveals that exercise machines have more bacteria than public bathrooms!  Yikes!

The BBB swabbed 27 pieces of popular workout equipment and found:

  • Treadmills have 74 times more bacteria than a water faucet in a public bathroom
  • Free weights have 362 times more bacteria than a toilet seat in a public bathroom

So don’t forget to wash your hands after a workout!
