Improve the Locker Room Experience

Locker rooms aren't always the first thing patrons think about when considering the quality of your facility, but if your locker rooms are poorly maintained, they won't forget it. Creating a pleasant locker room is a surefire way to make a positive impact on your patrons' experience. The right amenities, combined with locker rooms that are clean, dry and safe, are crucial.

Q: How can we improve our locker room experience?

A: You can make small changes that will have a big impact, without going into all the complications and expenses of a full renovation. Toiletries and hair dryers are easy to add immediately, and will give your locker rooms a more upscale feel.

If you have a swimming pool, it would be wise to add a way for swimmers to dry their wet suits after they get out of the water. A swimsuit water extractor can remove as much as 95 percent of a swimsuit's moisture in just 10 seconds, making it an ideal amenity for locker rooms in facilities that include aquatics.

Q: What can we do to ensure our locker rooms are neat and tidy during hours of operation?

A: Educate your staff on the importance of regular cleaning and establish a schedule for daily upkeep. Someone should be regularly visiting your locker room to check on toiletries, cleanliness and potential problems. These regular visits will also help prevent theft and vandalism.

Keep a checklist near the entrance to each locker room so employees can mark down each time they've checked on the space. During each check, toilet paper should be restocked and garbage emptied, if needed, and any messes should be cleaned up.

Swimsuit water extractors can also help to keep your locker room clean and dry, as patrons won't be tempted to leave their wet swimsuits on benches or hanging over lockers, where they can create puddles and other moisture-related damage.
