The nature of competitive sports can lead to increased risk for infections - protect your athletes!

In general, fitness equipment is known to have significant amounts of bacteria. Exercise bikes and treadmills have been tested to have 1.3 million colony forming units (CFU) of bacteria, and free weights had as many as 1.2 million CFU, which is 362 times that found on a public toilet. Of the bacteria found on fitness equipment, 70% was determined to be harmful to humans.

Athletes in contact sports, including football, basketball, wrestling and more are at an even higher risk for MRSA at a colonization rate of up to 62%, compared to 18-53% for non-contact sport athletes. Hundreds of players have contracted MRSA with numerous instances where teams have faced widespread outbreaks.

However, athletes are also at greater risk for respiratory tract and gastrointestinal illnesses.
