Cardio: Check all of your treadmills, cross-trainers, bikes and rowers. 


  • Dead batteries are common, especially after a long time after use.
  • Now could be the time to get things like torn upholstery or worn bike seats replaced.

Strength: check to see if all mechanics are still working correctly and efficiently- such as cables, weight stoppers and undamaged weight pins.

Make sure you have disinfectant and anti-bacterial wipes readily available in various locations in the gym.

Make sure all membership details are in order and correct, including the programming to re-activate returning memberships.

When the time comes, you don’t want your members wondering when you’re opening back up, or contacting you for details. 

Make sure it’s posted EVERYWHERE- the gym’s social media accounts and website. 

Encourage members or staff to re-post these for some free exposure, it may even lead to a couple of join up sales. 

Opening up could be a good time to capatalise on nudging people to join the gym, whether it was a long term desire, or the people who have had the self realisation to prioritise their health during this period.

If any damaged equipment needs replacing, or you are looking to upgrade the current equipment, now is the perfect time to do so before the government start relieving more restrictions.
