Halloween May Be Over, But Your Pilates Studio Is Still Scary!
Posted: Nov 02 2015
October is gone, and so are the haunted houses and trick or treaters. No more scary stuff in our lives until next year, right? Wrong! Did you know that your Pilates studios, yoga houses, and gyms are teeming with bugs and viruses that can get you without notice? And with this flu season coming up on us ever so quickly, we must do everything we can to protect ourselves.
Fun fact: Did you know that the flu virus can stay on Pilates and gym equipment for up to 48 hours?! (The Mayo Clinic)
This fact alone should have us all second guessing using those straps at our PIlates studio. We all know you're clean and wash your hands properly every time you use the restroom, eat, etc. But what about the person who was just in the class before you? Where have they been, what have they done, are they sick, and--most importantly--did they wash their hands properly so you don't get whatever they have? Unfortunately, the answer is we just don't know what others do in their own time.
There's a solution to not getting sick during this upcoming cold and flu season, though: Good Citizen Pilates Loops. With your own personal loops, you won't have to worry about who took a class before you because you'll already be protected. So, be a good citizen to yourself and to others, and get your own Good Citizen Pilates Loops. The cold and flu viruses won't stand a chance this season. Get In The Loop!
