It's no secret that many people are befuddled with mask rules and social distancing protocols, the vast majority are regaining confidence and are starting to return to gym and fitness facilities across Los Angeles. Many gyms are doubling down on cleaning staff, temperature checks, and spaced out workout equipment. Unfortunately, this doesn’t resolve the issue of viruses being transferred via touching high traffic surfaces such as exercise machines and weights that are frequently used by crowds of gym-goers.
Many overlook the fact that free weights or your favorite treadmill can hold 74 times more bacteria than your average washroom faucet. You may not be overly worried or think that this doesn’t directly affect you, but Elizabeth Scott, Ph.D., a professor of applied microbiology at Simmons University in Boston, says that “every time you touch something someone else has used, you’re potentially transmitting infectious agents to your face.” You may be alarmed, but you can decrease the likelihood of transmission by sliding on a pair of copper compression workout gloves by Spectral Body, which are designed for today's pandemic concerns. The copper-infused nylon fabric provides unparalleled protection against pathogens and viruses. Intrigued? You should be. Copper is resistant to bacteria and has been used since the ancient Egyptian era for this very purpose.
Spectral Body's impeccably tailored gloves handle the toughest tasks, have non-slip grips, and feel like a second skin. These gloves are very lightweight and breathable, so you can say farewell to sweaty hands and toss away your old, musky workout gloves that aren’t 100% machine washable like these copper ones.
If you need to change a song or respond to a text message, that will not be a problem because these gloves are one of the only of its kind to have touchscreen and smartphone compatibility. These gloves can also reduce swelling in your hands and improve blood flow caused by everyday “hands-on” work and strenuous activities.
This new revelation in protective hand wear for the gym has been one of the most talked-about topics in the circles of personal trainers, gym staff, and fitness insiders. You'll just have to experience a pair for yourself and see why they are the season's most wearable trend.
