2022 is the year the fitness industry has to adapt.
In the past 2 or more years, the COVID-19 pandemic hit gym hard, gyms and trainers were no longer able to run their businesses as usual. Forced closures and limited capacity are minimizing gyms and corning this industry and overtime, people got used to gymless lifestyle. However, as more and more countries open borders and cities gradually back into order, gym is officially back in the game. Some gym owners might be rusty on how to run a gym since it had indeed been so long that everyone was out of practice. What will happen in the future is still unknown, but prepare for uncertainty can never throw you under the bus.
Here are two tips for reopening a successful gym with our current circumstances in mind.
1) CREATE A SAFE AND SECURE ENVIRONMENT
Securing a gym is somehow much harder than it looks like. Gyms contain various different functioned room with very different purpose and requirements for surveillance. Not only is this a significant initial financial investment, but you are also responsible for the safety of the building occupants themselves and the customer experience. Integrators and end users generally agree that other key considerations such as security and cost will fade away unless your security entrance meets the throughput requirements. In order to make this important calculation, the type of users and the number of users in different time intervals of daily business operation must be considered. For example, will children, strollers or service animals enter? Are there specific entrances that use peak hours, such as shifts or lunchtime when people may go in and out at the same time? Do people need a certain degree of space and comfort? Are wheelchair and delivery facilities accessible? In order to handle all the concern at the same time, a well designed monitoring and central system is a must in a gym.
118 UNV cameras deployed across several locations with models; IPC3238EA-DZK (8mp Motorized Varifocal Lens Vandal Proof Dome) and IPC324SR3-DVPF28-F (4mp Fixed Lens Vandal Proof Dome) and NVR308-64R for each location that are grouped together to give a grasp of what is going on inside for gym owner to see. The dynamic camera combination is to cover the gym, from both close and far, in the entrances and every corners. Additionally, GOLD’s GYM is a chained gym the ownership got 28 UNV cameras at private residence and are able to monitor all of their gyms from a command center in their home office.
2) DISINFECTING YOUR FITNESS FACILITY
When disinfecting a gym, following are suggested during the cleaning process.
Better wash hands before cleaning and wash them with simply soap and water or rub hands together with an alcohol-based (preferably 70% - 75% alcohol) hand sanitizer around for a minimum of a good 20 seconds (Fuls et al., 2008; Honda & Iwata, 2016). Wear PPEs doing it (Honda & Iwata, 2016).
If using any alcohol based cleaning wipes, the surface should be wiped in the same direction to prevent contamination versus back and forth. Multiple wipes may need to be used. If using a spray, the surface can simply be sprayed down. The disinfectant liquid must remain on the surface for a specific amount of time-based upon the product recommendations.
When finished, dispose of any PPE, cleaning materials, and re-wash hands.
