Protect your valuable equipment and provide secure access for clients with a gym security system
An Exercise in Gym Safety
Injuries and accidents are par for the course when it comes to the fitness industry. On top of this, gyms and fitness centres are home to a lot of expensive equipment that thieves may want to get their hands on.
From training injuries and accidents to break-ins and other security threats, there are a number of things that could threaten the safety and wellbeing of your staff and clients. A premium gym access control system will ensure that everyone who enters your premises feels protected at all times.
This is especially true with the popularity of 24-hour gyms. When there may only be one person on the premises – particularly late at night or in the early hours of the morning – you need to ensure that they feel safe and that you know who they are in case of an emergency.
Choose 24/7 Active Monitoring
What many people fail to realise when it comes to gym security and access control systems is that they’re really only effective with 24/7 active monitoring. With many would-be thieves knowing that systems are rarely monitored these days and some even having figured out how to deactivate alarms, they rarely run as soon as an alarm is activated.
This puts your clients, staff and your valuable equipment at risk.
As a gym owner, it’s vital that you’re confident in the safety of your clients, staff and equipment by ensuring a prompt response in the case of an emergency or other incident.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, all of our technicians and specialists have received up-to-date training and licences in the security field. They are also certified by the Security Providers Association of Australia Limited (SPAAL).

Yes, we offer access control systems that can help to prevent tailgating from occurring, as well as identify perpetrators (including clients who knowingly allow tailgating to occur). Cameras will count the number of people entering the gym and compare this with information from the access control system; if there is a discrepancy, authorised personnel will be alerted.
As no two gyms are the same, the answer will depend on your specific business and premises.
