January is here! Now what?

In the fitness industry, we often think of January as being a month of motivation and restarts. Many new faces are starting off the year with routines and ambition. There is something known as the January Blues and it is very real. Often our lives are busy from Thanksgiving through the New Year. We are decorating, un-decorating, filling our schedule with activities, dinners, brunches, etc. Once we flip the calendar there can be a big letdown we aren’t prepared for as our schedules start to lighten up, we are un-decorating, and we may find ourselves alone for the first time in weeks.

We found this great post on This Space posted earlier this month. Take a few minutes to look it over and find ways to help yourself or a friend before those blues take over.

Lockers & Locker Rentals

Outdoor shoes, heavy coats, mittens and scarves. We aren’t talking about your lost and found loot; we are talking about lockers at your facility. We want our members to feel comfortable using the facility but we don’t want them tracking in the dirt and snow from the parking lot. Offering open lockers is great but what if your member is concerned about their steel toed work boots walking off? We asked the NIHCA Networking Group if they rent out lockers and how they keep the lockers cleared out of forgotten items (which have included everything from a single sock to car keys).

Renting out your lockers is a great way to bring in some additional revenue. An annual locker rental can range from $60-125 depending on size and availability. Renting out locker space could bring in $5,000-10,000 a year in additional revenue. Facilities tend to rent out no more than ¾ of their lockers leaving room for day usage as well.

Clearly state your policy. Whether the policy is that any locks left overnight will be cut and all items will be removed or that no locks are allowed. Be sure to monitor your locker rooms for unauthorized locks, locker use, and forgotten lockers.  See our article on “Lost & Found Policies”.
