As our lives change so does the time that we have to ourselves. This means that leisure time may come at times of the day that are deemed to be unsociable.
Gyms are one place that have been affected by these changes.
People tend to head to the gym when they have some spare time, they could be shift workers, stay at home parents or simply someone who likes to work out after their 9-5 is over. This means that there are times throughout the day when your gym is likely to be busy and also those times when it is likely to be quiet.
The question for many is whether or not to close or to reduce the amount of staff that they have on site to cope with these peaks and troughs.
An unmanned gym can still be secure
Faced with some quieter times at your gym? One of the best ways to save money on staffing is to leave your reception unmanned. But this could concern some gym owners; especially when it comes to security.
Automated security measures in order to enter your gym mean that your staff do not need to be present, yet your members can still gain access; at a time that suits them.
What are the options open to you?
One of the most common security measures that can be put in place within a gym is a controlled access door. This means that only members and staff can enter the gym using key fobs, swipe cards, or keypad entry systems.
Another security measure you can install is CCTV. CCTV is a visible deterrent to anyone who is considering abusing your membership only facilities. Not only this but it can also record footage of anyone is trying to access your facilities which can be used in the future.
Your members will feel more secure
Not only do CCTV systems and automated entry systems make sure that your gym is kept secure but they also ensure that your members feel more secure. This is not only great for their peace of mind, but it also installs trust too.
