We track entry and exit into the gym, this helps make sure we have accounted for everyone in the case of an emergency and also helps keep our membership costs down by knowing what times of the day we are less busy for promotions.
How do I use my security card?
Simply touch the entry scanner with your card on entry to the gym, this will unlock the door and allow you access. It’s very IMPORTANT that you also scan your card on the exit scanner when you leave the gym, for fire and accident precautions. Failure to do so can lead to your membership being revoked.
