24 hour Gyms

As we trundle faster than ever into a 24 hour digital world, fitness is catching up on the trend, with many Gyms offering 24 hour access to their facilities. Never again will you be frustrated by opening hours, and forced to skip a day due to over running work or family commitments. The Gym is there for when you want it, and when you need it!

24 hour Gyms

We have been having a look at Gyms which offer this service, to find out frequently asked questions, and work out how this actually works?!

Many of the Gyms who offer 24 Hour access are not manned durring the small hours. Most personal trainers and Gym staff tend to leave the premises between 7-10pm. This means that during the night the Gym is unmanned. How is this safe you may ask? Well all Gyms should have 24 hour security, usually in the form of CCTV cameras dotted around the Gym to ensure that users can feel safe. Many Gyms also have panic buttons installed in certain areas, so help can be quickly reached if it is needed. 

There are many different ways that Gyms allow their members to enter the premises during the night and these vary from fingerprint recognition, a code, and a key fob to more high tech image recognition of their face. Whatever the entrance, the Gyms need to know who entered and when. Should you bring visitors or give your password to others, which causes damage then you may face legal action from the Gym. 

So what do we think of 24 hour gyms? As a way of keeping up your fitness and momentum then the idea is brilliant. However we would urge our readers to also take caution. Many accidents can happen in gyms, through both human error and equipment maintenance. Training with a friend especially late at night is highly recommended. Should your last rep fail and you are pinned to the ground, youll have a buddy to lift it off. Not only is this safer, but more fun!
