3 Ways Tablet Kiosks Can Enhance Gyms

Regular gym-goers will know that the gym is busiest after work hours. Peak time hits from 5pm onwards and people are keen to power through their routine before heading home. After a long day at work, the last thing they want to do is queue to sign-in at reception. This is just one area where an iPad and tablet gym kiosk can help. Here are 3 ways iPad kiosks can enhance a gym:

  1. Reduce queues, cut wait-times and relieve pressure on staff

Gym staff are pulled between signing people in to use the gym, registering new members and booking visitors into classes, as well as other admin duties. A tablet enclosure is an effective queue-reducing measure that enables members to sign-in themselves.

imageHOLDERS provide a fully integrated solution for a fitness kiosk – a kiosk with an integrated scanner. The ID scanner can scan membership cards to validate the identity of the person signing-in. This would relieve staff from scanning cards, allowing time and resource to be better utilised.

  1. Easy viewing of timetables, class availability and booking

Cut time spent on staff assisting members by introducing gym kiosks. Members can manage their own attendance and bookings with a faster user experience. By displaying the timetable on tablet enclosures, it is fully interactive. Users can tap to see the available spaces for each class, and book at the same time.

This medium will be familiar to users, as 53% of adults in the United States own a tablet. Place these in the hallway or reception and prompt visitors to interact with these by adding digital signage.

  1. Increase confidence by enabling users to tap and search

The thought of asking for advice in the gym can be daunting, and many don’t feel comfortable interrupting a neighbouring gym-attendee in the middle of their workout. In some gyms, there are gym floor staff who are on hand to help, but these are few and far between, and members can still feel uncomfortable enquiring. By adding tablet kiosks to the gym floor, gym attendees may feel more comfortable as they will have a resource to use independently to discover how to use equipment. The tablet could be further optimised with videos of recommended routines and visual aids.
