Adapting Your Fitness Centre to COVID Cleaning Norms

In the pandemic’s aftermath, the way people think about cleanliness and hygiene has changed forever. Now that businesses are slowly reopening, you would have felt a need to realign your fitness centre to that way of thinking too. There are some things you can do now, to help your customers feel safer about getting back to their fitness regime with you.

Check the Rules

Government rules and regulations have changed many times over the last months in response to the challenge of the pandemic. Ensure that you are fully aware of all of them, such as the square metre rules, the capacity restrictions for indoor spaces, the training requirements, the usage of specific cleaning products,. Being compliant on all these counts will help you build trust with your community.

To stay updated you can check the Victoria government’s business guidelines for the sports, exercise and physical recreation sectors. 

Prepare a Strategy

Take a look at every individual area in your fitness centre and decide how you can best make use of it according to the physical distancing norms. Then, create a hygiene plan for each area–how to clean and disinfect, how often to do it, who will do it, what kind of commercial cleaning products you will need, any additional cleaning support needed, etc. Create a tracker and assign responsibility to someone for having it updated at all times.

Stock Up on Commercial Cleaning Supplies

Purchase basic commercial cleaning products like mops, buckets, microfiber cloths, cleaning solutions, disinfectants, wipes, etc. Also, stock up on hand sanitizers, liquid soap, soap dispensers, masks, disposable gloves, hand towels and air fresheners. Depending on how large your centre is, you might also need other products like floor cleaners, toilet essentials, etc. The ideal way to do this would be to buy cleaning supplies in bulk from a reliable wholesale provider like One Stop Cleaning Supplies. You will not only get a good price but also sound advice on the best products to get.

Train and Communicate

Apart from purchasing good quality commercial cleaning products, you also need to ensure that your staff is trained to use them properly. Get your cleaning crew proper training on the best practices of using disinfectants and other cleaning products, so that the best outcome can be derived from them.

You should also communicate clearly to your customer base about all the steps being taken to ensure their safety. Send them emails, put out updates on your social media, and talk to your regulars.
