Condition of equipment is one of the most important factors to keeping your fitness facility safe. This all goes back to what we talked about last month – Preventative Maintenance. Implementing a detailed and comprehensive preventive maintenance program and utilizing factory-trained service technicians will help to keep the equipment running optimally and to identify any potential issues. Maintain a detailed and up-to-date maintenance log for each piece of fitness equipment. Keeping a maintenance log helps ensure the equipment is functioning properly, optimizes the lifespan of the equipment, and exposes potential malfunction that could result in injury.
