How Often Should Your Fitness Equipment Receive Maintenance
January 10, 2019
Maintaining gym equipment is an important aspect of your gym operation. Each piece of commercial fitness equipment is relatively expensive and, as such, is usually considered a long-term business investment, which you and your club’s members rely on.
The importance of cleanliness when it comes to commercial fitness equipment is often overlooked, but implementing and sticking to a regular cleaning schedule is possibly one of the first and most important steps in extending the life of your equipment.
Regular cleaning of the equipment and its operating environment will improve member perceptions of your facility and reduce the need for service calls and repairs. That said, it is always important to refer to the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure that you are using cleaning solutions that won’t gradually degrade plastic and metal surfaces.
Gym Equipment Service
Whilst regular cleaning and preventative maintenance is always advised, professional servicing is periodically required for commercial equipment. Your gym’s equipment goes through frequent, and often intense, use and therefore regular professional checks will increase the lifespan of your products. Additionally, regular servicing will help to ensure that you remain compliant with safety requirements. Many fitness clubs choose to service all their equipment at once, other clubs spread the cost by servicing particular machines at particular times.
Maintenance and service will prolong the life of your equipment and will often prevent the need for repairs. However, whilst most fitness equipment manufacturers produce equipment that is in good standard, repairs to the occasional machine are inevitable over the lifetime of the products. Years of members pounding on a particular treadmill, for example, could eventually result in a need for its repair.
Rather than hope equipment will never require any repairs, it is sound business planning to assume that some machines will require repair at some point, and to therefore make accommodations for this. Clubs often notice an acute problem when one or more of their most popular machines is broken. It is important to establish a relationship and/or agreement with a gym equipment service provider in advance which ensures the problem is fixed quickly and cost efficiently.
