Social distancing, and all that encompasses the new normal, appears to be here to stay … for a while at least.

Luckily consumer demand remains high and will return post-pandemic. According to a study by RunRepeat there’s been an 88 per cent average increase in exercise for people who normally exercise once to twice a week.

But, due to social distancing, gyms across the world now have less space for equipment or members. With this in mind, they definitely can’t afford to be hoarding unused equipment that is depreciating in value all the time.

Sadly many operators are still feeling the repercussions of the pandemic in their workplace and barely have time to manage their gym, never mind selling equipment.

The pandemic saw them launch into survival mode – understandably – but things have changed, and it’s now time for a new approach. Luckily for us, we live in a digital age.

Global gym equipment asset management and procurement ecosystem Orbit4 uses advanced digital software to ensure gyms are aware of exactly how much their assets are worth and when is best to sell.

Paul McCormick, of WBGE Europe, said: “Cost-efficiency remains of paramount importance in managing your business, especially in these uncertain times. Digital solutions feature heavily in the top industry trends for 2022 for obvious reasons – they’re undoubtedly more profitable.

“With high numbers of absenteeism, due to enforced isolation periods, there’s also huge pressure on clubs and other staff. This can ultimately reflect badly on a business if there aren’t people on the floor.

“Using a digital gym equipment management system like Orbit4 to handle buying, selling and servicing gym equipment frees up staff to handle urgent day-to-day issues.

“WeBuyGymEquipment, FitnessCompared and WeServiceGymEquipment are all part of the Orbit4 digital ecosystem that both frees up your time and increases gym efficacy, efficiency and profitability.”

Despite all the horrors brought about by a global pandemic, there are some positive repercussions.

Remote working brought about the realisation that some of the less than obvious issues contained within the way we conduct business processes must change. Some of these challenges – usually the seemingly small and insignificant ones – have come to the surface and must now be solved.

Luckily, business owners are resilient and will do what they must to continue trading.
