HOW TO PREPARE YOUR FITNESS FACILITY BEFORE OPENING
To make sure your equipment is properly prepared, follow a simple checklist before your members walk through the door again. It’s wise to inspect the equipment and power cords thoroughly to ensure they are undamaged and free of dust or debris. Then turn on all power units one by one, some by pedaling.
Check all functionalities such as speed, incline and heart-rate monitoring and don’t forget to properly connect TV and internet cables to make sure the latest updates of the console software can be installed. This is the perfect moment to enable Life Fitness on Demand on your SE3HD-consoles. If you have any further questions about TV functions or software, please contact the Life Fitness Customer Support.
New regulations may mean you have to move or move out equipment. Every unit type has a specific way to be moved, so please be careful and take your time. After moving a unit around make sure it is stable before usage. Defects caused by obvious (deliberate) mechanical impact, inappropriate use or undo handling of the product may cause the manufacturer’s warranty to become void.
You likely spent time cleaning your club thoroughly while being closed. Before reopening, it is important to follow the latest government guidelines to make sure you do everything you can to ensure a safe and healthy environment for your members.
Mild soap and water or a mild non-abrasive household cleaner can also be used to clean the display and all exterior surfaces. Use a soft cotton cloth only. Apply the cleaner to the cotton cloth before cleaning. Specifically, for strength equipment use break-free CLP or oil to lubricate and clean all guide rods, cables and belts.
DO NOT (!)
- DO NOT use ammonia or acid-based cleaners.
- DO NOT use abrasive cleaners.
- DO NOT use paper towels.
- DO NOT apply cleaners directly to the equipment surfaces.
- We strongly urge our customers not to use bleach on the surfaces of our equipment.
You likely had the time to take care of any building issues during shutdown. Now is the time for last-minute tasks. Take care of any miscellaneous building issues you may have been putting off, fix any lightbulbs that need to be replaced, but definitely flush your water system and replace any HVAC filters. Make sure to double check water supplies and air treatment.
