Fitness during the epidemic, people expect outdoor fitness equipment to be “healthy”


People's Park in Cangzhou City, Hebei Province reopened, and the fitness equipment area welcomed many fitness people. Some people wear gloves to exercise while others carry disinfectant sprays or wipes with them to disinfect the equipment before exercising.

During the new crown pneumonia epidemic, many parks in Hebei Province were closed to prevent crowds from gathering. Recently, as many parks have opened one after another, the quiet fitness equipment has begun to lively again. The difference is that many people pay attention to their "health condition" when using fitness equipment.

In order to ensure that people can use fitness equipment safely after the park is opened, many parks in Hebei Province have strengthened the cleaning and disinfection of fitness equipment and listed them as a necessary condition for the opening of the park.

During the epidemic, apart from football fields and basketball courts, some areas of the sports park in Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province, including fitness equipment areas, have been open.

"In the community, the elderly and children use fitness equipment to exercise. Their resistance is relatively weak. The problem of killing fitness equipment should not be careless." He said with some worry.

"The safety of fitness equipment is related to the personal safety of the masses. It is very necessary to put on'protective clothing' for fitness equipment."

The system of disinfection and cleaning of public fitness equipment, and supervision of the use of people, to tie up the epidemic prevention and control network more densely and firmly. Fitness people should also enhance their awareness of prevention and try their best to clean and protect themselves before and after using public fitness equipment.

"The epidemic has given us a reminder: even after the epidemic is over, both managers and users should consciously strengthen the management and cleaning of public fitness equipment to ensure that they can serve the masses in a more'healthy' way." Ma Jian said.
