Abstract

University training center users include those attempting to improve their health. There are reports of a tendency of annual increase in the number of elderly people visiting fitness clubs. Thus, fitness clubs are now facilities receiving increasing demands and users. Under such circumstances, measures for preventing infections seem to be necessary in fitness clubs. However, till date, few reports have been published concerning hygienic management at fitness clubs. The present study was undertaken to investigate the hygienic status of machines used at fitness clubs. The number of bacteria present on 7 areas on dumbbells was measured thrice during the study and the bacterial count varied each day. In addition, the numbers of general bacteria and drug-resistant bacteria present on the machines that came in contact with users’ hands were investigated, revealing a large number of general bacteria and drug-resistant bacteria present on these machines. The finding of large counts of bacteria on the training machines despite some daily variations indicates the necessity for hygienic control on fitness club training machines.
