Signs Your Gym Needs New Selectorized Strength Equipment

December 12, 2023

Selectorized strength equipment is essential for successful strength training and offers many benefits, from user-friendly workouts to versatility. Keeping new selectorized strength equipment in rotation at your gym elevates your members’ strength training. Plus, new equipment tends to be more reliable, with fewer breakdowns and maintenance issues, meaning less downtime for members and uninterrupted workout routines. Maintain your gym’s strength training programs by keeping an eye out for some common signs your gym is due for new selectorized strength equipment.

Decreasing Member Satisfaction

As the ones operating the equipment, your gym members are great sources of valuable insight into your machines’ performances. Decreased member satisfaction is a telltale sign that it’s time for equipment upgrades.

If your members are complaining of feeling numb and extremely sore after sitting down for leg extensions on your current weight machines, you may need to upgrade to a more ergonomic model. Consistently using uncomfortable gym equipment can lead to potential injuries. Replacing your old machine with the Palladium SPL-0100 Seated Leg Extension selectorized equipment offers your members versatile seating workout adjustments, enhancing user comfort and satisfaction.

Frequent Breakdowns

Frequent breakdowns are a giveaway that your equipment has reached its limits, and it’s time to bring in some fresh equipment. Regular maintenance and malfunctions that are beyond repair can be costly. Investing in new selectorized equipment is more cost-effective in the long run than paying for constant repair services.

Cable Wear

Cables play a crucial role in transmitting the force exerted by the user to the selected weight stack, enabling a wide range of resistance-based exercises for targeted muscle workouts. These cables constantly undergo high levels of tension and friction during workouts, making them susceptible to fraying or even snapping over time. If you’re noticing significant wear on the cables of your equipment, it might be time to consider upgrading to newer, more durable models.

Limited Workout Selections

Did you start building your gym around the basics—leg presses, curls, and press-up machines? Although these workouts are basic essentials to strength training, your members might soon want more as their fitness goals grow. A limited workout selection can be a sign it’s time for a change. Offering different and new commercial selectorized weight machines expands your clients’ strength training and enhances your gym’s services. Adding a rotary torso machine like TRUE’s FUSE-1700 to your selection of basic curls and presses adds new opportunities for your members, allowing them to implement spinal and hip exercises to their strength training.

Keep your fitness centers modernized and maximized for success by looking out for these signs your gym needs new selectorized equipment. Providing top-quality selectorized equipment can increase member satisfaction, boost your gym’s reputation, and ultimately contribute to your success.
