Financing

 Finance

Gym equipment hire can provide many benefits, and for some business models can be integral to the commercial success of the gym.

Whether you are purchasing replacement equipment, adding to an existing fitness facility, or looking to set up procurement for a brand new facility, naturally you will need to give some thought to how you are going to pay for your gym equipment.

Of course, the benefits to a business of acquiring commercial gym equipment do not come from owning it, but from utilising it, and therefore the method of funding used is often vital to commercial success.

Gym Equipment Financing Options

There are usually a number of procurement / funding options available to you, but the most common are:

  • Pay from your own cash resources - This gives you some initial flexibility but it also ties up your cash in the fitness equipment for the next five years or so.
  • Take out a bank loan - Whilst this is often a viable option, it can be difficult to find a bank willing to lend in the current financial climate. It may therefore make more sense to keep any bank funding lines available for other financing needs, such as providing working capital, funding fit-out costs or other intangible costs.
  • Gym equipment hire (often referred to as ‘leasing’ or ‘rental’) - Paying for the use of the equipment over time, drawing upon the income it generates, is often the most logical solution and accordingly leasing is a commonly used method of funding fitness equipment purchases.

 
Many businesses turn to leasing / financing as their preferred method of acquiring equipment, as it is flexible and overcomes many of the drawbacks of outright ownership. Once you’ve tied up capital in fitness equipment it is locked away forever. By contrast, fitness equipment rental allows you to pay for the asset over its useful working life and means that you can utilise capital more efficiently and effectively.

Gym Equipment Maintenance, Service & Repairs

 Servicing

Gym equipment maintenance, service and repairs are all important aspects of your gym operation.  Each piece of commercial fitness equipment is often relatively expensive and, as such, is usually considered a long-term business asset, which you and your club’s members need to rely upon.
 
The following provides a brief overview of the three main areas of preserving these key assets:

Maintenance

The importance of cleanliness when it comes to commercial fitness equipment is often overlooked, but introducing and adhering to a regular cleaning programme is possibly one of the first and most important steps in prolonging the life of your equipment. 
 
Regular cleaning of the equipment and its operating environment will not only improve member perceptions of your facility, but it will also minimise the need for service calls and repairs.  That said, it is always important to refer to the manufacturer’s guidelines, to ensure that you are using cleaning solutions that won’t gradually degrade plastic and metal surfaces.  It’s also important to ensure you don’t apply any liquids to equipment when cleaning, in the interests of the equipment and, more importantly, your safety.
 
In addition to cleaning, regular preventative maintenance is also recommended, and most manufacturers will provide full details of this with the equipment’s documentation.

Gym Equipment Service

Whilst regular cleaning and preventative maintenance is always advisable, much like a car, professional servicing is periodically required for commercial equipment.  Your gym’s equipment goes through sustained and often intensive use and therefore regular professional checks will generally prolong the lifespan of the product.  Additionally, servicing will help to ensure that you remain compliant with regulatory safety requirements.
 
Many fitness clubs choose to service all of their equipment at once, either using a manufacturer’s engineers or a third party company.  Other clubs spread the cost by servicing particular machines at particular times.

Repairs

Again, much like a car, maintenance and service will prolong the life of your equipment and will often avert repairs.  However, whilst most fitness equipment manufacturers these days produce equipment which is generally of a good standard, repairs to the occasional machine are inevitable over the lifetime of the products.  Years of members pounding on a particular treadmill, for example, could eventually result in a need for its repair. 
 
Rather than hope equipment will never require any repairs, it is sound business planning to assume that some machines will require fixes at some point, and to therefore make provision for this.  Clubs often notice an acute problem when one or more of their most popular machines is broken and therefore establishing a relationship and/or agreement with a gym equipment service provider in advance usually ensures the problem is fixed quickly and cost efficiently.

Precor Service Support

Precor offers a full range of gym equipment service packages, both for Precor and third-party equipment.  Our engineers are technically qualified and fully trained on a comprehensive range of products.  An additional benefit is that a vast majority of engineers are full time employees of Precor or Precor’s local distributor, which results in extremely high levels of product knowledge, and therefore a highly dedicated support service.
 
Qualified, industry-experienced customer care and technical support staff are another integral part of our after-sales service, providing remote support to our field service team as well as our customers.
 
If you would like to find out more about what servicing options are available to you from Precor, please simply contact us.
