Also, similar types of equipment are usually placed together. For instance, all the thread – mills are placed together whereas the weight lifting equipment is clustered in one portion.
- Ensure that the gym is clean, an unclean one is a severe no-no amongst potential customers. Ensure that the equipment does not seem old, if they are, clean and polish them if necessary. All the equipment must be neatly ordered and placed in their respective positions.
