Guests won’t always let management know that there’s a problem because they only use the gym for a short amount of time. If employees use the gym on a regular basis, they are more likely to recognize and fix the problem. In addition, employees that are personally invested in the gym will make sure it is in good shape and will be more inclined to clean and maintain the equipment. Lastly, if the gym needs to be cleaned or stocked up on supplies, employees can take the initiative to clean and resupply the gym for a better guest experience.
