Women gymgoers filthier than men

New York, May 25 (ANI): The funky smell at your gym could be because most people tend to wear their workout gear a few times before washing, according to a new poll.

The new survey finds that most people wash their clothes only after every third workout.

Women are the worst offenders, the survey said, with just 21 percent washing their gym clothes after each and every workout, the New York Daily News reported.

A poll of 1,456 British fitness fans revealed that the top excuses included saving for a bigger wash, not having enough gym clothing, or just not being bothered.

Still, 44 percent said that working out next to smelly people negatively impacts their workout.

Even among those who washed their gym clothes after every use, a third revealed that they actually just meant that they switch out their workout top.

The research, announced Wednesday, was conducted by sport and fitness retailer Sweatband.com. (ANI)
