Gym germs

Three tips for NOT catching colds and flu (or other nastier things) at your gym:
1.   Shower flip flops
2.  Anti-bacterial wipes -- your gym should provide them, but use them BEFORE and after you use equipment
3.  Do not touch your eyes or mouth with your hands while you are working out.  Wait until you've soap-and-water'd them several times post-workout.
Kudos to American Public Health Association for sharing "Stay Healthy and Infection Free at the Gym."
