Insights from Research into Gym Cleanliness
All gym and health club operators understand the importance of gym cleaning but are also aware of the costs involved. If you see cleaning as just another expense, think again. Research has shown that cleaning is more of an investment than an expense and will result in
stronger growth and overall performance. So, rather than trying to sharpen the pencil with your cleaners, sharpen the schedule to ensure you are getting bang for your buck. It pays (literally) to spend a little bit more to get a higher quality clean.
Health Clubs are a breeding ground for bacteria due to the high level of skin contact and sweating.
Regular sanitisation is crucial to minimise any risk of contamination:
- Provide anti-bacterial wipes and hand sanitiser at close range to every piece of equipment throughout your club
- Encourage your members to use them after using every piece of equipment
- Wiping the vinyl sweat areas and hand areas of the equipment after use can greatly reduce the risk of spreading infection.
- Provide anti-bacterial soap in the bathrooms for hands and anti-bacterial bodywash in the showers will further reduce this risk.
Not only will it reduce the risk of sickness, your club will rate much higher with your members for cleanliness and it will make it very convenient. In providing these facilities, be sure your staff and cleaners regularly replenish them so that they are always available. If the dispensers are there but are empty, this will discourage the use of them and if empty for too long, members will not use them at all.
