    BOSTON - Going to the gym is supposed to help you stay healthy, but a new study says it could be making you sick.
     
     
    They discovered free weights have 362 times the number of germs as a toilet seat. They also found the typical treadmill had 74 times more bacteria than a public bathroom faucet.
     
    Researchers recommend disinfecting equipment before and after each use, as well as washing your hands after each workout.
