Introduction

Why do Health and Fitness businesses need effective security?

The health and fitness industry has traditionally used barcoded membership cards or fobs to keep track of members. These systems are prone to misuse, abuse and loss and are complicated and time consuming to set up. Health and fitness centres generally offer a range of different membership packages, so managing access can be complicated.

Membership Access Control

Risk

  • Abuse of membership rights; members sharing cards or access codes with non-members, off-peak members using facilities at peak times
  • Access by unauthorised people
  • Members accessing areas not covered by membership rights

Solution

  • Protect your gym with fingerprint readers; only authorised members can gain access; stop tail-gaiting with biometric turnstiles
  • Allow members to access only those areas which are included in their membership

Membership management:

Risk

  • Non-payers or terminated memberships still allowed access
  • Lapsed members not noticed or acted upon

Solution

  • Set validity dates when user is enrolled; their access stops when their membership does
  • Run reports to show when members haven’t attended for a while
  • Boost revenues – no cost for providing and managing membership ID cards
