Yep, nasty shit. Just make sure to always wash your hands and never put them anywhere near your orifices while working out. True story - i had the MRSA infection in my nose. Just near the tip. Must have scratched it, or picked it, or some shit. Turned out to be the kind that's completely resistant to antibiotics (there are 2) and had to use a SUPER antibiotic that costs more than a used car. Thankfully, I had insurance at that point.
