I have a membership at a gym here in Pretoria. It’s a fairly nice facility. One thing I’ve noticed, that’s rather odd, is that people workout without shoes on. People will ride the bikes, run the treadmills, and lift weights barefoot.
I don’t think this is physically safe or hygienically sanitary. Honestly, it’s disgusting.
Have any of you been overseas and worked out at a gym? Have you noticed this? What are your thoughts?
