Our intuitive security system knows when there are no members in the gym and arms the entire security system, disarming only when a valid member scans in. This means that the security of your gym is always maintained. Ensuring that no one goes behind reception after staffed hours is a challenge in a 24 hour gym. Installing gates, shutters and bars can make the gym feel uninviting and more like a prison than a fitness centre, but for most gyms this has been the only way to secure reception
Tailgating is a real problem for many industries, especially 24 hour gyms. Gym’s through Australia and New Zealand are consistently losing money through non-members sneaking into their facility without paying. Some members bring friends in to workout with, thinking that by coming in when they know there will be no staff on-site, they will be able to get away with their partner using the gym without paying. Other times a non-member will wait by the door, then when a valid member enters, they will sneak in behind them without the members knowledge.
The time poor are embracing the idea of a healthy work lifestyle balance. Access to a gym outside normal hours, is how a large number of Australians are able to fit a workout around their busy schedule. Around the world, 24 hour gyms have become extremely popular in western countries. In fact, on a per capita basis, Australians have taken to the concept more openly than any other country. So much so, gyms that offer 24 hour access control facilities to their patrons are thriving.
