“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” – Colin Powell
The gym is a sweaty place. That is just the nature of the business. As Powell said in the above quote, one doesn’t accomplish their dreams – their goals – through magic. Unless your name is Harry Potter, you have to work hard for everything you have. That includes your physical fitness. So some level of sweating is expected on your quest for a more physically fit you, especially after a particularly intense session at the gym.
“You accept a level of grossness in most gyms, but have a little respect,” said Dan Trink, C.S.C.S., strength coach and owner of Trink Fitness.
Nothing is quite as cringe-worthy as sweaty equipment.
“I can’t describe the disgust I feel when I go on a machine or bench following another person and they don’t have the courtesy to wipe it down,” said blogger Jeff Gordon.
The solution: Towels.
How Towel Rental Can Improve Member Satisfaction and Facility Cleanliness
Towel Rental is the most cost-effective way to provide your members with clean, fresh towels. There is no initial investment, there is no need to purchase towels, there is no need to purchase equipment, and there is no need to pay for any additional labor. Your towel rental service will handle everything, from pickup and delivery to laundering and repairs, for a flat, weekly fee. All you have to do is sit back and reap the rewards.
Towels and Cleanliness
“You never know who last used the equipment in a gym,” said Steven M. Zinder, a trainer at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. “It’s all common sense. You need to keep yourself and your equipment clean.”
Gyms should provide their members with fresh, clean towels at every visit and implement a policy for members to use these towels to ensure cleaner equipment.
Towels and Member Satisfaction
It’s more than simple common courtesy. Towel rental could also help drive business. As Pam Kufahl, editor-in-chief of Club Industry magazine said, if you “keep them (members) satisfied, the more they’re going to come back and refer you to their friends,” said Pam Kufahl, editor-in-chief of Club Industry magazine.
