Gym Germs

I'm starting to get really annoyed with all the germaphobes at the gym.

I see people who wipe down their machines with spray, towel, and wipes before and after they use a weight machine.

I see people bathing themselves in hand sanitizer when entering and leaving the gym.

To these people I have to say, if you are that scared of gym germs, then rent a workout DVD for your home.

There used to be this really hot guy that I stared at while on the elliptical machine across the room. But after a few months, when I saw his incessant wiping, cleaning, and sanitizing of everything he touched, I totally lost (creepy staring) interest. I am not a fan of dainty men.

Be a man! Embrace the germs.

Then me a human, go home, wash your hands, and take a shower. 15 minutes of not being sanitized never killed anyone. (Actually it probably did, but not gym-related I bet).

I think the world has gone nuts with hand sanitizer.

Me? I'm not a fan. I hate the smell and I have yet to see any proof that it's not just a more lubricated way to rub around the same germs over and over again all over your hands.

Obviously I'm not going to go around rubbing my face on the gym mats or putting my fingers in my eyes after using a weight machine, but have mercy. If you're at the gym, you're going to get a little dirty. And if you don't, then you're probably doing something wrong!

I heart germs.
