I don’t know about you, but I know there have been times where I’ve been afraid to even step foot into a corporate gyms shower. They can be unhygienic, dirty, and some don’t even work. Sometimes its just a gamble to see if the shower has luke warm water or fridged cold. Don’t even hope for any hot water.
I can’t understand why this is considered excusable, either! A lot of people go to the gym in the middle of the day, and either have to go back to work afterward, or want to go home. Either way, you don’t want to get in your car with your gym clothes on. But risking yourself at a gym shower which looks like it hasn’t been cleaned in days, or even weeks? It feels like being stuck between an unhygienic rock and a smelly hard place.
Some gyms put the entire focus on gym equipment, but completely neglect other aspects of the gym. Sure, widescreen televisions are great, but is that really where the priority should be? Some private gyms I’ve seen don’t even offer showers to begin with.
It’s not just about keeping a clean house, either. When you join a gym, you want to to be comfortable in your environment. That’s why I’m so proud of our facility here at Boomer Fitness. We keep a clean set of showers, always stocked with clean towels, soaps, and shampoos. It has hot water (not lukewarm, but HOT!), and is available for all members. And you will never, ever have to worry about whether it was cleaned recently. We are very lucky to be working with The Cleaning Authority, who comes in and makes sure our showers are up to our standards.
To me, this shouldn’t have to be advertised as another service. It’s a basic necessity among gyms. It’s just one more reason why Boomer Fitness takes gym membership to a whole new level.
