Diversity of Bacterial Communities of Fitness Center Surfaces in a U.S. Metropolitan Area
Mukherjee, Nabanita et al. Public fitness centers and exercise facilities have been implicated as possible sources for transmitting community-associated bacterial infections; however, there is a lack of knowledge about the diversity of microbial communities at fitness centers. Microbial load and diversity of the environment are often implicated as a critical indicator of hygiene and cleanliness. Facility cleanliness can be achieved through cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces. Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) is a proven technology that has demonstrated effectiveness against the commonly found bacteria identified in this study, without compromising user safety.
