The Importance of Sanitizing Your Gym Equipment

Disinfect your equipment with ZOOM wipes!

A gym is an extremely habitable environment for germs, bacteria, viruses, mold, and mildew mostly due to moist conditions. The dampness is an obvious consequence of gym activities; however, Zoom Wipes can ameliorate the situation at an impressive scale.

Numerous studies have been conducted that reinforce the need for persistent attentiveness by gym owners.

For example, a study commissioned by a gym equipment comparison website looked at 27 pieces of equipment at three different gyms and stumbled upon these unforeseen findings:

  • The free weights had 362 times more germs than the average toilet seat.
  • The treadmills had 74 times more bacteria than a tap in a public bathroom.
  • The exercise bikes had 39 times more bacteria than a tray from a food court.

Gyms have a duty to create a safe environment for their clients and staff, and for that purpose, it is mandatory for the members of the fitness association to adhere to certain requirements and standards. Zoom Active Wipes and Zoom Evolution Wipes can be used to frequently clean the wet areas of gyms which ensures compliance with occupational health and safety legislation.

The fitness industry is booming with countless gyms, with each facility striving to take the lead by being at the top of their game. Amidst this intense competition, it is absolutely essential for a gym owner to set the gym apart.

The best way to achieve this is by practicing cleanliness and promoting modern hygiene standards. Fortunately, modern gyms have Zoom Wipes acting as an ally on their road to commercial success. Immaculate hygiene is directly proportionate to customer satisfaction and retention rates.

Moreover, there are other motives for maintaining a clean environment as well. Public liabilities can be avoided by preventing falls and slips by keeping the gym areas dry. Secondly, by maintaining a clean gym equipment, its depreciation can be delayed. No business can thrive without being cost-effective. One of the ways this can be accomplished is through economies of scale. Zoom Wipes are offering efficient bundle deals, which not only help gym owners save money, but also make certain that the gyms are spotless, owing to professional wipes dispensers that come in the bundles.

So far we have developed an understanding that there are ample motivators for running a spotless and clean gym. There are numerous creative ways of attaining this. Here are some helpful tips for gym owners:

  • If you’re building a new gym or refurbishing an existing one, the following elements can be assimilated: High filtration vacuum system, drainage and ventilation systems.
  • Strict adherence to a cleaning schedule can make all the difference. Hygiene can be maximized by improving efficiency. Hourly and weekly tasks can ease the management to a considerable extent.
  • Educate the staff and as well as the customers about the importance of sanitizing gym equipment. Read More

5 Reasons to Upgrade Your Gym’s Cardio Equipment

But just as important as making purchasing decisions for brand-new facilities, club operators of existing clubs need to know when to invest in an equipment upgrade. That decision is a bit more complicated—and club owners often put it off. As IHRSA’s e-book says: “New prospects expect it, existing members request it, and staff push for it, but investors/owners often resist it.”

Mostly, reinvestment is a retention strategy. The IHRSA Health Club Equipment Report found that 73.2% of club owners say that their equipment purchasing decision is based on retaining existing members. The good news is that the average ROI industry-wide supports the decision to invest in equipment upgrades. The IHRSA Health Club Equipment Report cited above found that some clubs enjoy revenue growth as high as 33% after investing 13.4% of revenue into new equipment.

Great people to work with, they didn't push me towards any specific equipment but made sure I had the right pieces that would work perfectly in my gym. Glad they were so helpful and understanding of my many many questions. I'd go through them again in the future.

Cherokee Town and Country Club

Cherokee Town and Country recently utilized Innovative Fitness to upgrade its strength room flooring, dumbbells, and selected weight equipment. Billy Burke and his team were excellent in their ability to communicate with the club and internally so that we were able to get exactly what was needed.

Billy’s expertise and guidance were superb. He did not try to oversell us on equipment or flooring, but rather made sure to show us all our options in order to make an informed decision. His design team was great and meticulous in making sure that our current layout would accommodate the new equipment and assisted in designing a new layout using the space more effectively.  The flooring team was professional and efficient. They stayed out of member areas and were communicative, making sure that the club was always kept in the loop.

Since our reopening, we have received compliments from our membership on a daily basis. The flooring looks fantastic and ties in well with our new and existing equipment. We are pleased with how close the color matching was on the flooring and dumbbell logos, with club colors. Overall, working with Innovative Fitness has been a positive experience, and we would work with them again on future projects.
