As we settle into a New Year, many people may experience a renewed determination to regularly choose a form of physical activity, whether an aerobic activity or strength training.
Getting the American Heart Associations’ recommendations for physical activity – 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise, 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity, or a combination of moderate and vigorous aerobic workouts in addition to two days of strength training – is an excellent way to boost overall health and well-being.
You can help your members achieve the goals they made for themselves at the stroke of midnight on December 31, 2021, while promoting a safe environment by using an EPA-registered disinfectant like Decon7 in your facility.
Tips for Disinfecting Your Gym or Fitness Studio
Choose an EPA-registered disinfectant.
As new strains continue to develop, any product you purchase for disinfection purposes in your fitness club must be registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, as you can be assured these products have demonstrated efficacy. Decon7 is one such product that you can find on the EPA’s List N, for its proven 99.9999% log kill rate, which the agency expects will kill all strains and variants of the coronavirus when used according to label directions.
Always clean surfaces, then disinfect.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend cleaning hard, nonporous surfaces like exercise equipment with soap and water to prevent the spread of infection. Cleaning works to remove visible traces of debris from the surface, reduce germs, ultimately promoting the effectiveness of your preferred disinfectant. Regardless of whether you’re applying Decon7 as a foam, fog, or spray, that should be routinely done. In addition, you may want to implement a cleaning and disinfecting checklist, training all staff members on the proper use of disinfection solutions and equipment.
Read and follow all label instructions.
The only way to ensure safe and reliable use is to adhere to the label instructions. Read the label to learn about approved sites and ensure the product is appropriate for your needs. For example, D7 can be applied as a fogger in locker rooms to eliminate any odors resulting from your members crushing their daily fitness routine. Other pertinent information on the label includes mixing instructions, contact time, storage guidance, precautionary statements, and expiration dates. Immediately discontinue use of any product past its expiration.

Decon7 capitalizes on the natural cleaning power of hydrogen-peroxide, penetrating and eliminating pathogenic bacteria, sanitizing down to the molecular level to prevent future outbreaks.
