Beat the Summer Heat: Stay Fresh and Clean with the Right Soap

Bar soap and suds


Summer is here, and as the temperatures rise, so does the intensity of our workouts. With the heat comes more sweat, which not only means you’re sweating out your workout clothes faster but also leaving more of it on the gym equipment. To ensure a clean and hygienic workout environment, it’s crucial to wipe down the equipment both before and after use.

At Total Source Fitness, we take cleanliness and hygiene seriously because we care about our members. Our motto, GO HARD OR GO HOME, reflects our commitment to intense and effective workouts. But after going hard, it’s equally important to go home and shower up with the right products to keep yourself clean and healthy.

Why Regular Soap Isn’t Enough

After a long, sweaty, and intense workout, especially in the dead of summer, just any regular soap for your shower probably isn’t going to do the trick. Regular scented soaps and shower gels are great for everyday use, but they might not effectively remove the sweat, bacteria, and grime accumulated during a tough workout.

The Importance of Specialized Soap

Using a specialized soap after your workout can make a significant difference in maintaining your skin’s health. These soaps are formulated to tackle the specific needs of athletes and fitness enthusiasts:

  • Thorough Cleansing: Specialized soaps like Defense Soap are designed to deeply cleanse your skin, removing sweat and bacteria more effectively than regular soaps.

  • Antimicrobial Properties: They often contain ingredients that help combat bacteria and fungi, reducing the risk of skin infections that can be common in a gym environment.

  • Skin Protection: These soaps are formulated to be gentle on the skin while providing robust protection, ensuring you stay fresh without causing dryness or irritation.
