Why Humidify for Gyms and Fitness Facilities?

Air quality plays an important role in gyms and fitness facilities. Optimal relative humidity levels between 40-60% RH help improve the health, well-being and comfort of guests and staff.  If your gym members are not comfortable during their workout they will be less likely to turn into regulars and recommend you to others.

Water makes up about 60% of the human body. Maintaining this level of moisture is crucial to our health and well-being as nearly every major system in our body relies on water to function properly. As we go about our workout, moisture is lost to the environment through breathing, perspiration, urination, and evaporation. While it’s important to drink enough water while in the gym, the moisture content of the air around us plays a more significant role in our body’s hydration while working out than first meets the eye.

When a fitness facilities humidity levels are low, the air must compensate by pulling moisture from any source it can find. We typically notice this as chapped lips, dry eyes, and itchy skin, but there’s more going on beneath the surface. Numerous studies have proven that humidity levels below 40% RH lead to a reduction in the mucous layers that protect us from infection and also impair our body’s ability to regenerate damaged tissue (Kudo 2019).

At Condair, we support you with our expert knowledge in planning and realization of perfect humidified air for gyms and fitness facilities. Humidity levels that are too dry can have a destructive effect on guest experience and satisfaction. 

Benefits of humidity for gyms and fitness facilities include: 

  • Reduces airborne bacteria, viruses, and fungi emission rates.
  • Weighs down biological aerosols, so that they can be disinfected and wiped off surfaces.
  • Minimizes discomfort from dry and irritated skin. 
  • Reduces employee absenteeism and improves concentration.
