It's a frequently asked question, "Should I wear hearing aids while at the gym?”
Yes. The answer is always a resounding YES! The benefits of wearing your hearing aids at the gym far outweigh leaving them in the car or locker.
But for some, these reasons could be stopping you from wearing hearing aids during your workout:
- My sweat can damage my hearing aids.
- I don’t need hearing aids while working out.
- My hearing aids could be lost or damaged.
- Other people will be looking at me.
The truth is, none of these are good reasons to ditch the hearing aids. Balance can be affected, you may not hear instructions from a trainer or emergency alarms, or your devices could be stolen from the locker room. Inside the gym, hearing aids can be accidentally dropped while on the treadmill and yes, sweat causes short-circuiting and damage to the hearing aids.
As for the last concern - no one is looking at you. Have you seen the people at a gym? Their hair is a mess, they're grunting while lifting weights and much too busy to be concerned about what they're doing to ever worry about hearing aids on another person. Don't let this stop you!

Eric Weiner said it best, "I sweat a lot during spin class. My last pair of hearing aids stopped working in the middle of a spin class. With Ear Gear, my hearing aids are protected and I am worry-free. After class, I am amazed at how they stay dry despite all the sweat. I will never work out again without using Ear Gear."
