Safety & Liability: Equipment Selection

When it comes to purchasing fitness equipment for your property, you will want to consider potential liability and protecting the user when choosing the equipment. Choose manufacturers and dealers with established track records of solid performance, durability, product testing and quality control and user safety.  You will want to purchase commercial or light commercial products, this will ensure the equipment holds up based on the needs of your fitness facility. Consider the safety features of the equipment: protected weight stacks, emergency stop mechanisms, and instructional placards explaining how to properly use the equipment.

Don’t forget about flooring!  It is important factor in equipment selection.  Choosing the right flooring for each space will provide stability and absorb shock.  These are both important for bone and joint health as well as extending the lifespan of your fitness equipment.
