How Does the
GymValet Help Exercisers?
When exercisers want to sanitize a piece of fitness equipment before or after
using it, they often have to either:
A) Walk across the fitness center hunting for sanitizing supplies.
B) Worry about tripping on the supplies that are often haphazardly strewn on
the floor between equipment.
C) Exercise on an unclean machine because sanitizing supplies are either hard
to find, too far away, or totally unavailable.
With the GymValet, exercisers appreciate the convenience of having sanitizing
supplies within arm’s reach. It makes their workout safer, more efficient
and more enjoyable. They appreciate the ability to work out on clean equipment.
Exercisers can also enjoy using the GymValet as a handy container for their
personal water bottle and towel. They no longer have to place their personal
effects on the floor and/or drape their towel over a piece of equipment. They
won’t have to interrupt their workout to quench their thirst, or wipe themselves
off because their personal supplies are conveniently, within arm’s reach.
Additionally, when they are finished with the equipment, they don’t have
to worry about tripping over their personal items that were previously strewn
on the floor. (top)
How Does the GymValet Benefit Fitness Centers or Clubs?
With installation of the GymValet, fitness facilities will experience dramatic
improvements in members’ compliance with equipment cleaning and sanitizing
policies. Exercisers appreciate the added cleanliness, and fitness centers experience
improved operating efficiency.
Affixing the GymValet to each piece of equipment, or placing the GymValet
amid machine “clusters” to provide “one-step-away” accessibility
helps protect a facility’s investment in both its members and its equipment.
Members appreciate not having to hunt for sanitizing supplies, or trip over
them as they move through their workout. They also really enjoy being able to
place their personal water bottles and towels within arms reach.
When the GymValet is attached directly to a piece of equipment, our research
has shown that members are much more likely to use the supplies provided by facilities
to sanitize the machines; this creates a better workout atmosphere for all exercisers.
It’s safer to have the sanitizing supplies and/or water bottles in holders
affixed to the machines rather than strewn across the floor where liability becomes
When exercisers place their personal towel on the “front” crossbar
of a piece of cardiovascular equipment, such as a treadmill or an elliptical,
the facility runs the risk of exercisers falling off the equipment if the towel
falls “underfoot”. The GymValet addresses this safety issue with
a multi-position hook that securely holds an exerciser’s personal towel
in place throughout the workout. The towel hook can be conveniently located off
to the side of the piece of equipment, reducing liability and protecting a facilities
investment in their exercisers. Displaying the GymValet shows the exerciser that
their facility cares about their safety and comfort.
Fitness Centers and Clubs are often looking for ways to differentiate themselves
from their competition. Our experience has shown that when exercisers are offered
the luxury of having a convenient place for their personal water bottle and towels
on all equipment, they are very appreciative; the result is that facilities will
experience higher member satisfaction and retention, as well as having a drawing-card
for new member attraction.
Because of the unique design of the GymValet it fits all frame shapes and
angles of cardiovascular and strength training equipment. It stays securely in
place, even on actively used/vibrating pieces such as a treadmill or elliptical.
The GymValet is a ‘one stop shopping’ solution that can benefit the
entire facility. (top)
Equipment Cleaning Economics
Why do we say that the GymValet Equipment Cleaning System is the most cost effective cleaning system available? Consider the facts (see chart below):
ALL START-UP AND REPLENISHMENT COSTS ARE BASED ON INDUSTRY AVERAGES FOR THE LISTED PRODUCTS.
• GymValet start up cost is based on: 8 GymValets, 8 spray bottles, 24 towels, and 2 gallons cleaning solution.
• GymValet annual total includes towel washing and drying costs.
• Roll and tri-fold paper start up cost: 4 dispensers, 2 cases paper towels, 8 spray bottles, and 2 gallons cleaning solution.
• Disposable wipes start up cost: 4-700 count containers, 4 holder-stands w/wastebaskets.
• Annual GymValet and paper-based cleaning system totals include cleaning solution costs.
We studied ALL of the costs associated with the installation and regular use of four commonly used equipment cleaning systems: 1) Disposable roll paper towels + spray bottles, 2) Disposable tri-fold paper towels + spray bottles, 3) Disposable pre-moistened wipes, and 4) GymValet reusable towel + spray bottle.
Our research showed that the set-up costs for all four systems were very comparable. With regular use, however, the difference in system costs was extremely significant! Disposable roll paper and tri-fold paper systems cost from four to seven times as much the GymValet system. The disposable pre-moistened wipes system cost a staggering NINE times as much as the GymValet system!!
In these challenging economic times, can you afford to spend up to nine times more on an equipment cleaning system than you have to? Additionally, you cannot lose sight of the environmental impact of a disposables-based system. Single-use wipes and paper towels will most likely end up in the land fill. Disposable wipes are made from synthetic fibers that are practically impossible to biodegrade.
With the GymValet you can optimize the economic and operational efficiency and effectiveness of your equipment cleaning system. You’ll contribute positively to your bottom line, and not the land fill! (top)
Frustrated members want a place for their
Fitness center and club owners/managers are frustrated with the lack of member
compliance with equipment sanitizing policies. They are also frustrated with
the mess and safety concerns associated with having supplies strewn all over
the floor. Members are frustrated that they don’t have a convenient place
to store their personal water bottles and towels—up to now, their only
solution has been to place them on the floor, exacerbating the safety issues.
Finally, there is a solution to the problem—the GymValet. Because there
is a lot of demand for this type of product, resellers have a great opportunity.
Fitness Centers and clubs will be thrilled to be introduced to the GymValet.
We have not been to a fitness center or club yet that has not immediately recognized
the benefits of this product.
The GymValet is a great add-on solution for both strength and cardiovascular
training equipment. It can serve as an addition to new equipment purchases or
as an add-on to equipment currently being used in the field. Suppliers can provide
the GymValet in fitness equipment accessory packages as well. (top)
