When you head out to the gym, you might think it’s a good idea to leave your hearing aids at home. You’d be wrong. With advances in modern technology, and tons of cool gadgets available, there is no reason to leave your hearing aids at home.
If your hearing loss is profound, you will have balance issues if you don’t use your hearing aids.
This will make using a treadmill or other equipment not only hard, but potentially dangerous.
The extra moisture from sweat might seem like a problem, but it’s not.
Today’s hearing aids are fairly well moisture proof. A little extra sweat isn’t anything that will affect them. But, if it worries you, invest in a dehumidifier and use it post-workout. (In a pinch, you could throw them in a bag of long grain rice)
Worried about losing them mid-workout? Not a problem.
These days there are tons of products that help keep your hearing aids in place while you are working out. From headbands to tape there are tons of options that will keep them right where they need to be.
If you don’t wear them, how are you going to hear your trainer, or emergency messages?
If you work with a trainer, you aren’t going to hear all of their instructions if you aren’t wearing your hearing aids. If you don’t work with a trainer, and there is an emergency situation, you might miss hearing important info for your safety.
Really, we believe there are not very many reasons to leave your hearing aids at home.
Hearing aids are designed to improve your life, not make it more difficult. Twenty years ago, leaving your hearing aids at home might have made sense, but these days it’s not necessary at all.
