FITNESS AND HEALTH – AIROFRESH – TIME TO COME INSIDE
What if you could dramatically reduce the level of microorganisms, contaminants and odours in your gym?
TIME TO COME INSIDE – for fitness
(Purpose designed/patented exercise and fitness atmosphere by Airofresh)
Airofresh completes the good living trilogy;
- Eat – healthy non-toxic food
- Exercise – with good advice and appropriate equipment
- Breathe – purified & sterilized air (capable of removing heavy metals).
AIROFRESH (SAP) technology – specialized, designed and patented for enclosed atmosphere of any size. Registered Organic.
The Airofresh BCU (biological control unit) for health and fitness facilities provides a unique environment. No longer do you need to breathe the contaminants of others (including sweat, bacteria, cars, mould, lead, dust).

Air pollution and inside exercise.
Poor indoor air quality can result in significant adverse impacts on our health and environment. Moreover, these impacts carry a significant cost burden to the economy. When you can smell the sweat and see the dust you need to find an Airofresh facility.
The CSIRO estimates that the cost of poor indoor air quality in Australia may be as high as $12 billion per year (Brown, 1998). In recent years, comparative risk studies performed by the US EPA and its Science Advisory Board have consistently ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health (US EPA, 1993).
Air pollution and outdoor exercise?
While aerobic activity is one of the keys to a healthy lifestyle, air pollution and exercise can be an unhealthy combination. This is especially true if you have asthma, diabetes, or heart or lung conditions. Young children, older people, and people who work or exercise outdoors can be especially susceptible to the effects of outdoor air pollution.
Outdoor air pollution can come from many sources, including:
- Motor vehicle traffic
- Pollen from flowers, trees and shrubbery
- Wind-blown dust
- Burning wood
- Agricultural operations, including raising animals and clearing land
- Power plants
Even when you’re not exercising, exposure to air pollution can cause health problems. But with the combination of air pollution and exercise, the potential health problems are increased.
Inhaling more air, deeply into your lungs during exercise and more likely through your mouth than nose increases risk. The air you breathe in generally bypasses your nasal passages, which normally filter airborne pollution particles.
Health problems associated with air pollution include:
- Irritation of the eyes, nose and throat
- Damage to airways of the lungs
- Increased risk of asthma development
- Worsening of existing asthma or other lung conditions
- Increased risk of heart attacks and strokes
- Increased risk of death from lung cancer and cardiovascular disease
However, because exercise has clear health benefits, don’t give up, unless your doctor has instructed you to stop. Research has shown that the long-term benefits of regular exercise.
To stay as healthy as possible while you exercise, focus on ways to minimize your exposure to air pollution. You can limit the effects of air pollution when you exercise in many ways, including:
- Select locations of least contamination. Airofresh specialist air purification is established in many fitness facilities. Providing enclosed atmosphere that has been sterilized and purified for you.
- Avoiding high-pollution areas. Pollution levels are likely to be highest within 500 meters of a road. If possible, avoid these kinds of areas when exercising unless they have specialized patented Airofresh purification.
- Exercising indoors. Go to a fitness establishment or class. A fitness facility near you may take atmosphere quality seriously and have appropriate Airofresh purification and sterilization controls is place. You will smell the difference.
- Air conditioning is not air purification. HVAC (heating, ventilation and cooling) systems do not purify air. In most cases ducting and physical filters trap larger contaminants creating breeding grounds. Smaller contaminants such as gas phase odors, virus, chloramines or bacteria are generally not treated. Its obvious, smell the sweat and other contaminant odors.
If you’ve ever seen a brown haze of pollution hanging over your city, most likely your response was, “Ugh. How can I avoid breathing that stuff?” But let’s face it, even if you know it’s a bad air day, you probably need to grab some sunshine, get in some exercise or get to work.
Polluted air contains particulate matter, lead, ozone, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, and sulphur dioxide — all of which can cause problems in people with allergies or asthma. Even if pollution is low, airborne pollen and mold can make a trip outdoors particularly daunting for people with respiratory conditions.
