How do Gyms and Health Clubs use ID Cards?

Staff IDProper identification in a company setting is a key component of maintaining secure operations, particularly visual identification. ID cards can be worn by employees at all times as well as by temp workers. Typically, ID cards are worn on badge reels or lanyards by the employee and should be highly visible to managers and to gym patrons. A simple photo ID badge clearly displayed on the employee can help build trust with the customer.

Childcare Worker IDToday, you’ll find that many health clubs, especially large-scale gyms, offer childcare while kids’ parents are working out or attending fitness classes. All childcare attendants or daycare workers should have proper photo identification along with their credentials visible on them via an ID badge to alleviate parent’s trepidation about leaving their children in the hands of these childcare employees.

Keytag CardsKeytag membership cards are an easy and convenient way to ensure you have your card on you at all times when at your gym or health club. Key tags can easily be affixed to one’s key chain to make certain that every time they work out, they don’t have to worry about whether or not they forgot their membership cards. Most gym members prefer the size of key tags over the standard credit-card sized membership cards.

Membership ID CardsProper identification within a gym or a health club is a key component of maintaining secure operations and tracking the activity of members. Gyms can keep a detailed database of all of gym members; new members receive a photo membership card. The card is scanned at the front desk and cards help identify non-members and ensure that intruders or workout-and-dash individuals are not able to enter the gym.

Access ControlYou’ll find that both small and large gyms/health clubs rely heavily on access control cards to allow only authorized individuals to enter a designated area of a building. These individuals usually include managers, front desk staff, nighttime cleaners, and fitness instructors. An access control card is a sure-fire way to prevent unauthorized persons such as intruders from gaining access to restricted areas and compromising security.

Multifunctional & Smart CardsGym employee ID cards serve a much greater purpose than simple photo identification. Many companies are utilizing data storage technologies (e.g. barcodes & magnetic stripe cards) to monitor important data of their employees such as their status, position, and the date they started working. Additionally, Smart cards have become a common type of technology employed by companies and can be used as access control cards.

Promotions and Discount ID CardsMembership cards can offer a wide array of benefits including yearly discounts, access to free fitness classes, and free tanning at health clubs. Moreover, members will often receive a discount for continuing their membership the following year or after it expires. It’s a great tactic for gyms and clubs to use for members, as it helps maintain their loyalty and involvement with the business.

Time and AttendanceMany professionals within the automotive industry are paid hourly versus paid a yearly salary. Thus, time and attendance ID cards ensure that the employee clocking in on their shift is there on time and has been accounted for. Time and attendance cards often use magnetic stripes or barcodes that are scanned by a reader and usually work with an existing tracking software program.

Learn More About Gym and Health Club ID Cards

Most gyms utilize ID cards for access control, as a way to ensure only authorized members are granted access to a gym’s pricy equipment and specialized services. Members show or swipe their ID card as they enter the facility, and their identity is verified. This may seem simple, but it is the most effective way of keeping non-members out. Membership cards can also motivate members to go to the gym more and invite more of their friends to join the gym with them, which helps to boost membership.

Because gym membership cards are typically tied to a database, they make it easy for a club to manage membership accounts, quickly identify those entering the facility, and often provide automated alerts if the cardholder’s membership is up for renewal.
