Safety First: Essential Maintenance Tips for Commercial Gym Equipment

You have invested time and money in your gym and its equipment. To keep your gym successfully operating, you need to look after it. It’s a no-brainer to keep your gym equipment in the best possible condition. The way to do that is with regular maintenance.

 

Maintenance and cleaning are not jobs that should left to chance. You need to create a regular maintenance and cleaning schedule. Doing this prolongs the life of your equipment and maintains safety in its usage for your client and staff. Clean, functional equipment also adds to the ambience of your gym and that all-important user experience.

 

Dirt, sweat and grime can quickly build up on gym equipment. To maintain a healthy environment, you must establish a regular schedule for daily, weekly and monthly cleaning and maintenance tasks. 

 

Daily Checks On Gym Equipment

Pay attention to all aspects of your gym. Big and small jobs all need planning and should include,

  • Equipment surfaces must be wiped down after each use to eliminate sweat and bacteria. Have the cleaning spray and wipes available on all pieces of equipment.
  • Use a specially chosen cleaning fluid—that will sanitise but not harm the gym equipment.
  • Inspect belts, cables and pulleys for any sign of wear and tear, fraying or discolouration and respond to any issues promptly. 
  • Check bolts and screws that stabilise your gym equipment. Check if any are loose and tighten them – using the correct tool for the job.

Provide training days for your staff members on gym hygiene and equipment care. You can then ensure that a trained staff member is responsible for the daily maintenance of the equipment. Supervising untrained junior staff members is also essential.

 

Weekly Or Monthly Checks On Gym Equipment – Depending on Usage

3 Points To Consider For Your Maintenance Schedule.

Weekly Or Monthly Checks On Gym Equipment – Depending on Usage

3 Points To Consider For Your Maintenance Schedule.

1: You need to check and lubricate any moving parts to reduce friction improving the life span of the components. Always check manufacturing booklets before taking any action. Again, this should be the responsibility of staff trained to know what to do. Focus on equipment like,

  • Elliptical pedals.
  • Treadmill belts
  • Any resistance mechanisms 

2: To maintain the correct airflow and prevent overheating, inspect and clean air filters on cardio equipment.

3: Ensure all electronic parts of your gym equipment are functioning correctly— such as screens and control panels. If you find any issues with these, contact the manufacturer. Or use a certified technician.

 

It would be best to schedule annual or semi-annual gym equipment maintenance by the manufacturer or certified technicians. Doing this will ensure the equipment is working at peak capacity, picking up any potential problems before they become serious problems. Remember to record all the maintenance performed, who by, when, and what the job entailed.

 

Cleaning and maintaining your gym to the highest standards is more than aesthetics. It is about the user experience and ensuring the health and safety of staff and users of your gym. Regular maintenance is a must-do if you want your business to succeed and prosper.
