Vapor Fresh teams up with the Medical Fitness Association (MFA) as an Industry Partner
Vapor Fresh and the Medical Fitness Association team up to bring citric acid disinfecting gym wipes to the medical fitness community
ARLINGTON, VA., May 10, 2021 - Vapor Fresh, a leading manufacturer of stronger, safer, greener cleaning products specifically designed for the sports & fitness industry, has teamed up with the Medical Fitness Association as an Industry Partner to help bring citric acid disinfecting chemistry to medical fitness facilities across the United States.
“By providing medical fitness facilities an alternative to harsh quat-based disinfectants, we can help them provide a safer environment for their patients and members,” said Stephen Steinberg, Founder of Vapor Fresh. “We’re so excited to partner with the Medical Fitness Association, whose prominence and reputation in the industry will help drive the next stages of growth for Vapor Fresh.”
Due to the increased intensity and frequency of cleaning procedures from the COVID-19 pandemic, overexposure to quaternary ammonium compounds - or “quats” - has become a concern among experts. Due to the well documented reports of quat-induced asthma attacks and lung irritation from exposure to quats, this is a particular concern within the gym and fitness community.
Vapor Fresh® Disinfecting Gym Wipes use citric acid to disinfect instead of quats. Citric acid is an approved active ingredient on the EPA’s Safer Chemical Ingredients List and these wipes carry the lowest EPA toxicity rating where they are not even required to have a warning label. Even with this citric acid chemistry, Vapor Fresh® Disinfecting Gym Wipes are still EPA registered to disinfect 99.9% of germs and are on the EPA List N Disinfectant for Coronavirus.
“The Medical Fitness Association is proud to partner with Vapor Fresh through our Industry Partner program,” said David Flench, FACHE, FMFA, Interim CEO, Medical Fitness Association. “Our program allows us to share industry products with our medical fitness membership. In this time when disinfecting has become so heightened at fitness facilities, it’s important to have vendors like Vapor Fresh that are offering an effective product without the harsh chemicals.”
The Medical Fitness Association (MFA) is a member-driven, non-profit organization. MFA’s mission is to foster opportunities for the development and operational success of medically integrated fitness centers. MFA provides industry standards, educational programs, benchmarks, outcome measurements, professional development and networking opportunities for the medical fitness industry.
Vapor Fresh has been manufacturing stronger, safer, greener cleaning products for the sports & fitness industry since 2008. Along with their disinfecting gym wipes, they also manufacture botanically-based cleaning sprays for sports pads and fitness equipment, laundry detergents for active households that wash a lot of athleisure and sports jerseys, and 100% natural foot & shoe powders.
