Access control and security for gyms and Leisure facilities

Thursday, 9th March, 2017

Leisure facilities such as gyms require an access control solution to keep their members and staff safe, but what other requirements may need to be considered? In this blog we take a look at the two main areas to consider when deciding on access control for your gym…

Customer service
A gym membership can be very expensive and there is a lot of competition out there so retaining customers is vital to your success. Members need to feel valued, secure and confident that they are dealing with state of the art products and equipment. Therefore, having a reliable, attractive and easy to use access control entry system is essential to keeping members happy. Maintaining a welcoming reception and atmosphere that makes life as easy as possible for your members is also a massive benefit and a must to achieving 100% customer satisfaction.

Let the right people in at the right time
You will have invested a lot of money in specialist gym equipment and other great facilities, so a door entry solution is needed to ensure only the right people have access to your premises, facilities and equipment at the right time and this can all be easily achieved with a good access control solution. A good solution will not only block non-members but will also block members who have not paid membership fees, membership has expired or they are trying to go to the gym in peak periods with off peak membership.
