3 Reasons Why Gym Equipment Repair is Important

3 Reasons Why Gym Equipment Repair is Important

Gym Equipment Repair 

As people get back to their normal routines after the pandemic, fitness centers are seeing an increase in new and returning members who were not able to go to the gym during the pandemic. Although attracting visitors back to the gym is very beneficial, having tattered, worn-out equipment is not. Exercise equipment that is torn, cracked, or ripped tends to have a shorter lifespan, poses health risks, and reduces member satisfaction.  

 

Extend the Life of Your Equipment 

Upkeep is necessary to extend the life of most things, including your gym benches, seats, and equipment. Even the smallest of tears can become massive problems if they aren’t dealt with accordingly. As stated by RunRepeat, 49.9% of Americans visit the gym at least twice a week. There’s no denying it: rips and tears are unavoidable, and that’s why we’re here to help. 

Fitness equipment repair is an easy, inexpensive alternative to replacing your equipment. Instead of weight bench pad replacements that can become expensive, get your money’s worth out of the equipment you already own. No matter the type of fitness equipment servicing you need, we will make your items look and feel brand new. Whether it’s an exercise bike repairseat repair, or weight bench repair, we can restore and upholster it all… and much more! 

 

Health Risks 

Not only are tears and cracks unattractive, but they can also pose a health risk to your customers. In addition to being professional and appealing, proper upkeep is also an effective way to reduce the risk of infections and viruses. Unfortunately, an issue that all gyms deal with is bacteria, especially bacteria found hiding in the rips and tears of damaged equipment.  Fixing your damaged material with our upholstery repair service can eliminate this issue. 

 

Improve Member Satisfaction 

For most companies, member satisfaction is a top priority. If your workout equipment is cracked and torn, it can give the wrong impression to your members.  By repairing equipment in poor condition, we can help you recreate that environment where your members feel safe, welcome, and satisfied.

The restaurant business has endured a great amount of change over the past year. Like many others, restaurant owners and staff demonstrated tremendous resiliency and developed creative solutions to serve customers through carryout, outdoor dining and other social distancing practices.

As restaurants welcome customers back, there are many new protocols to follow from cleaning and seating to service and atmosphere. Here are five tips on how to help increase traffic as things are opening up and getting back to the new normal.

Increase Social Media

Posting once or twice a week may not be enough to let people know your doors are open and you are ready to welcome customers. Think of ways to engage your audience. Post a picture of a new menu item, post appetizer or drink specials, and remember to invite customers to come dine with you.

Expand Happy Hour

The new work-at-home structure has allowed a lot more flexibility in today’s workforce workday. Many are able to start their day early and are ready for lunch by 11:00 a.m. or for an afternoon snack and drink by 4:00 p.m. Depending on your location, happy hour can include specials on appetizers and not just drinks and start as early as 11:00 a.m.

Promote New Menu Items

During the past year, many restaurants had to go to a reduced menu. Customers may have missed their old favorites so adding them back to the menu gives them another reason to visit your establishment. Don’t feel like you need to add them all back at the same time, add them back as you are ready and be sure to have your staff promote these favorites as they get added back to the list.

Keep a Clean and Maintained Facility

This one will remain a top priority as people often associate a well-kept and clean restaurant with the quality of food. If there are tears in seat cushions or cracks in bathroom counters or tabletops, customers have reason to believe the restaurant isn’t interested in safety and cleanliness and they may decide not to return. Keep a cleaning service and a repair service on retainer to manage your budget, and to ensure your customers have an excellent dining experience.

Deliver Service with a Smile

Thank customers for coming back. It’s no doubt this past year has been a challenge, and customers have felt a lot of the pain too. Many restaurants not only thank the customers for being there, but the staff also lets customers know, “We’ve missed you and we’re glad you’re back!”

If you are a hot tub owner, you know they are a large investment. It takes a lot of maintenance and care to keep an outdoor spa running and looking great. Keeping up with care from normal wear and tear can help so you get to enjoy it much longer without having to invest in removal and replacement. It is inevitable that your hot tub will slowly wear out. Especially outdoor spas that are exposed to the elements. Rain, snow, harsh UV rays, wind and humidity can play a huge role in breaking down your tub. The most insignificant rips, cracks or fading can be detrimental to the overall health of a hot tub if left unnoticed.

Hot Tub Covers

Hot Tub Covers are the first line of defense against unwanted debris and prolonged contact with the elements. When cleaning your cover inspect for rips, tears and signs that it is wearing. Minor tears and rips can be easily fixed before it causes bigger punctures, unwanted odor or mildew build up.

Spa Cabinets

The outside surface of your hot tub is most likely the most worn area of your hot tub because of its constant exposure. The cabinet has a huge impact on the appearance of your hot tub, but tends to be the most neglected. Cleaning and inspecting your cabinets every few months is important for preservation. Wooden hot tub cabinets can be stained or oiled annually to keep them fresh looking. While composite spa cabinets can be cleaned and cared for with non-abrasive cleaners and protectants much like your vinyl spa cover.

Spa Shells

The shell will need to last for the entire life of your spa, and its condition can make or break your decisions of repairing or replacing altogether.
