February Valentines Special

Posted on January 31, 2017 by Dave Schipper

Through February 15th we're offering a special on our RED striped JR Gym towel.

The special is our wonderful gym companion, the JR ribbed cotton Gym towel.  When we ask our customer what they like about it, we get comments like, "It's a great sweat towel",  "Doesn't take up a lot of room in my bag", or "I can even keep one in my purse".  What ever your reason, it's been a keeper in our gym towel line for a long time.  CLICK Here to go to the Special.

If you are really looking for a deal, we rolled back our pink tinted Red Striped towels an additional 40%.  CLICK Here to see the difference between the two towels.

Enjoy,

Dave

Gym Membership Gift

Posted on December 06, 2016 by Abigail Kramer

Ok, so we’re all at that point of deciding on the tough decisions, what to buy that significant other for Christmas.  Well we just moved from out in the country to town, so I was thinking about buying us a gym membership. It was an adjustment, going from having a private outdoor gym to being restricted to traffic and sidewalks. I’m looking to get active again!  So to Google I went:

Did I get a kick out of the first search I found, “A gift you should never buy!”  I was comforted by the idea that I’m thinking it’s for the both of us, and it fitness directive and NOT that I’m thinking about weight loss.  Boy you do need to be sensitive, but I’d add smart too.  67% of people don’t use their membership that they are paying for. 

So think twice, purchase smart and try not to offend. For some people, a membership is the difference between saying they’ll work out and actually working out.  Wish you all the best of success in your Christmas shopping. 

Of course if they own a gym, we have some great towels for you to buy them.  

Here's a list of links that I reviewed above:

Reduce Towel Theft

Posted on October 31, 2016 by Abigail Kramer

Towels are a great way to bring a higher level of customer service to your members, but many health clubs worry about towels walking out the door.  Here are a few ways you can stop towel theft in its tracks while still providing an amenity that many customers appreciate and expect from their gyms.

Ugly Towels  – It sounds like a terrible name for a towel, but this has been a bestseller for over 80 years. Available in many sizes, the “Ugly Towel” is proven to reduce towel theft thanks to its “ugly” olive green color.

 

'Property Of' Towels – McArthur can decorate any towel with our “Club Property” prints or you can customize with the name of your own club – “Property of 123 Fitness.” This low cost add-on is a reminder to members to return all towels before leaving the gym.

Towel Card System – How it works? Members receive a towel card and when they would like a towel, they leave the card at the front desk. When done, they trade the towel back in for their card.

Distinctive Towels – Our most popular towel for Gym is our striped ribbed Super or JR Gym towel; and while everyone loves the quality, everyone is completely aware this is not your normal household towel.  Having a distinctive towel like this on your premise reduces the risk that someone will walk off with it.  Pick a color your gym will be recognized with, or buy multiple colors, say Pink and Blue for the ladies and men's.

Towel Round-Up – Done a couple times each year, members are encouraged to return towels that were taken from the facility, no questions asked. This can be promoted through signs, gym newsletters and social media.

Return Towel Signs – Posting signs around the gym and at the exits is an easy and simple reminder to members. “Towels are the property of 123 Fitness Center. Please return them to the proper bins before leaving the facility."
