If you own a gym, you understand the difficult task that is running and maintaining a successful business. Your goal, like any business owner, is to turn over a solid profit, and that means increasing your membership while also keeping your current members happy. Obviously, offering competitive prices and state of the art equipment is key to your success but if you’re wondering what else you can do to up your gym’s reputation, we’ve got you covered. It’s an easy solution: hire cleaning services.
That’s right. It might seem obvious, but it’s unfortunately something small that a lot of gym owners tend to overlook, or at least not prioritize. And in today’s society, with a growing emphasis on health and awareness, you can’t afford to ignore your gym’s cleanliness.
88% of adults wouldn’t exercise in an athletic facility if they perceive it to be unclean. What’s even more shocking is that 72% of adults wouldn’t even exercise if there are unpleasant odors. And in a gym, the smell of sweat and other body odors is hard to eliminate. That’s where commercial office cleaning services can save you.
With so many people going in and out of the gym all day, sweating on machines and unfortunately sometimes forgetting to sanitize them when they’re done, health facilities can ironically be some of the least clean places. They’re the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and the spread of viruses and germs.
Sure, you could try to clean your gym by yourself every evening when you lock up. But not only is that very time consuming (time you probably don’t have, let’s be honest), but it’s also inefficient and ineffective. One of the best perks about using professional cleaning services is that they are just that: professional! They are very good at what they do and use top of the line cleaning products that are also safe for the environment and your members.
Understandably, cleaning services cost money, and some gym owners aren’t sure it’s worth the additional expense. However, nine out of ten health club members will renew their membership if they think their facility is clean. With the gym industry more competitive than ever, the promise of an increased member retention rate will more than make up for the extra cost of hiring cleaning services.
