About a year ago last april I started the local gym near my home. I was going 5 times a week for about a month when I got super sick and ended up in the hospital for major mucus plugs on my lungs. They thought I had pneumonia but it wasnt. it was just that bad. I hadnt gone to the gym since then and was doing great might I add. About a month ago I started the gym again. To my surprise I end up really sick again, Is the gym really that bad that it gets me sick everytime or is that just my imagination? Has this happend to anyone?

Hi!!

Well that's interesting,- but CF is full surprises,-<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border="0">

But actually,I would take it more easy for a while, instead of 5x times a week,- try 2, then build up to 3,( this is my routine ) esp since you have been sick lately. In my opion 5X times a week is too much,- it extremely important for a CF body to fully recover after exercise, as remember our phyical demends are double/triple that of a person without CF.

But all in all, when you got CF you HAVE to exercise, just take it easy and starting slow is the key <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0"> Also, make sure to wipe down eqiupment before use, and wash your hands, the usual "advice" to avoid buggies <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border="0">

I've been on the verge of joining a gym myself, but I have recently read MRSA is on the rise in gym environments. If regular people are getting infected, how about CFers? This is one of the superbugs that we all dread. Is it worth the risk? I'm not sure.

I go to the gym 5-7 days a week (once the weather gets nicer, I'll move outdoors for my workouts) <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0">

I haven't had any problems getting sick after going to the gym or anything... I don't even wipe down the equipment w/ the sanitizing wipes before/after use (I know, it's bad, I just don't do it).

I do always wash my hands immediately after going to the gym, and make sure to not lay my face on the mats that are used during the classes (ewww...people sweat on those, etc) when we are cooling down/stretching.

To be extra cautious, maybe bring lysol/chlorox wipes to clean equipment before use, and of course wash hands, etc. If you are always noticing after the gym, maybe move your workouts outdoors for a bit and see if it's the act of working out that's causing the problems, or the gym.

Sorry I don't have much advice, and I'm sorry you're having these issues...good luck! <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0">

There are so many variables for what makes us sick. When you do this analysis, take into account:
season--did you join in the fall/winter and is that when you get sick all the time anyway? Just re-read that you started in April--so forget that. But how often were you getting sick prior to the gym?
sleep--did your exercise take away from you sleep? I find that I need more sleep when I work out...something has to give. You can't add w/o taking away, unfortunately. For me it is TV and chitchat time with friends--gone.
exposure--to people at the gym, but also in other activities.
nutrition and hydration--nuf said.


I try to do Zumba 3x a week. It is cardio for one hour. I am sick right now though and trying to decide "how better?" do I have to be to go back to the gym...like if I can get through the day without an Advil for chills and body aches? Or do I take the advil and go b/c the mucus clearance is worth the exhaustion?

I have found going to the gym a couple times a week is very helpful. But your body needs time to recover. so i would reccomend only going a few times a week or work different muscles on different days.Your body needs time to recover otherwise that could definately be making you sick.

I go to the gym 4-5 days a week.
If I were you, I would not be scared, just CAUTIOUS.
I always WASH my hands in the bathroom on the way out AND carry hand sanitizer in my purse to use as soon as I get in the car (after I've touched the door handles on the way out).
People at our gym are very good about cleaning off the machines after each use.
I also wear workout/weight lifting gloves to reduce the germ exposure.

I just had a similar problem and was considering giving up my gym membership. I have decided to stick with it but I always wash my hands before I leave and use a ton of soap. If you wait until you reach your car, the germs go with you to your car. Also, I was advised to avoid the hot tub at all costs. If you sit low in the hot tub, it is very easy to pick up the germs that you really don't want. I was told the pool wasn't the same due to the heat factor. Hope that helps!

I've been going to the gym since november '09. That was the first time in my life I actually started exercising daily. I have always been active but not necessarily with exercises (you know cutting the grass, washing the car, daily life stuff etc). This winter I didnt get sick. I remember picking up a bug or two but I kept at the gym, and I don't really know but I believe it helped me knock out whatever I had. I also practice what musclemania mentioned. Before I leave the gym I wash my hands and arms up to my elbows. I also keep hand sanitizer in the driverside door of my truck (I work in healthcare) so it has been habit for me to get in and use that too.

I had the same thing happen to me at the gym. Was going there for about 4 months and ended up in the hospital. There are too many, RUDE people who don't know enough to cover their cough and who knows where their hands have been! lol

I started P90X last year and love it. My lung functions have improved about 15% and I'm 41 years old. I love it so much I became a coach to help support peopl with CF. You can check out my website and workout in the safety of your own home. :-)

Kinda old topic (couple weeks old) but I wanted to add that besides the infection hazards, simply exercising too much lowers your immunesystem and can make you sick.

I notice this myself especially when for example on the verge of getting a cold, if I then go deep with exercise it will come in very quick and hard. Same with coping with infection or not feeling well, then I must not go so deep with exercise and really try to eat well so my body has some reserve to cope with whatever it's upto.

Key is to always listen to your body and between exercise let your body recover.

Kinda old topic (couple weeks old) but I wanted to add that besides the infection hazards, simply exercising too much lowers your immunesystem and can make you sick.

I notice this myself especially when for example on the verge of getting a cold, if I then go deep with exercise it will come in very quick and hard.

I've been hitting the gym for real, for about the past four years. For the first two years I went every other day, consistently. I started running into injuries after the initial one year push, though, and it always set me back. I've learned to be wiser in how I workout now, and I simply strive for consistency over amount. My gym consistency has been lacking for a while now due to scheduling issues, but I'm doing other workouts in place of it when need be (Navy SEAL PT, Running/hiking and doing push-ups/pull-ups with a ruck (So far up to 60 lbs.), etc.). There are a plethora of exercises to keep in mind for whenever you can't go to the gym.

Also, just note that any number of issues can be causing you to get sick at the gym. The first factor I'd look towards would be the environment itself. There could be bad air circulation, mold in the air ducts, carpeting, etc. Try a few different gyms, and see if the same issue persists (My gym, which is the favorite of all I've been to so far, has one giant open room with great air circulation. It's not stuffy like some of the gyms that have a ton of small corridors).

I do know people who got MRSA recently. Most likely from the gym we attend.

It doesn't stop me from going. I wear gloves that cover my whole hand (they disguise well as weight lifting gloves) so I never touch anything.

Plus, I wash my hands RIGHT BEFORE I leave with LOTS OF SOAP AND HOT WATER.

Then, shower as soon as I get home and put my clothes in the dirty laundry.

Short and eloquent. I fully agree.

@Deeonlyone (and for posterity, since this is an old thread):

I would go bonkers if I wasn't able to weight train and do cardio three times a week.

That said, my gym is fairly disgusting. Judging by the state of the locker rooms (water everywhere!), the place is crawling with nasty bacteria. I'd imagine that even those gyms that appear cleaner aren't in much better shape.

If you're getting sick regularly, and the <i>gym</i> itself appears to be the cause, you should probably consider a plan for regular exercise elsewhere (outdoors, home gym, or both).

Good: If you are really motivated and will continue in future irrespective of any reasons
Bad: If joining just because you saw you friend going or someone developed a nice body. And you are planning to do so.

It could also just be that gym particular gym.&nbsp; Perhaps they are quite cheap on the maintenance of their a/c or heating system which is what you are sensitive to.&nbsp; I too go pretty much 5 days a week when I'm doing good, if I'm not feeling so great or am coming down with somethng then I may back off a little.
