CCI Helps Fitness Centers Reopen Safely

November 3, 2020

As fitness centers across the country have slowly reopened their doors, Creative Colors International Inc. offers a solution to help gyms keep members and employees safe.

In 2019, global fitness industry revenue totaled $94 billion, and health clubs were on pace to reach 230 million members by 2030, according to the International Health and Racquet & Sportsclub Association. The outbreak of COVID-19 closed the doors on fitness centers across the country. COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that spreads throughout the country by person-to-person contact, and many fitness centers were designated as high-risk facilities and remained closed as Americans did their part to flatten the curve. Experts concluded that humid air generated in gyms from people exercising could contribute to the rapid spread of the virus, according to Healthline, a medical publication. During closures, gyms worked diligently to revamp their facilities to accommodate new social distancing guidelines, as well as comply with health and safety protocols detailed by the Centers for Disease Control.

“Fitness centers play a major role in helping our citizens relieve stress and stay physically fit. Now more than ever, people need to be able to access ways to stay healthy,” said Mark J. Bollman, CCI’s president and co-owner. “CCI can help ensure your fitness center can continue its mission to members and comply with the CDC’s safety guidelines. Our Sanitizer & Disinfectant is an affordable, easy-to-use and effective solution.”

Despite being closed, fitness centers helped members weather the pandemic. Exercise is essential to health and wellbeing, especially as many Americans adopted a more sedentary lifestyle while quarantining. Recognizing that many dedicated fitness fanatics were turning to homemade sourdough bread and delivery pizza to cope with the stress of the pandemic, shuttered fitness centers rose to the challenge and provided innovative services to keep members healthy. Many fitness centers generated sales by taking exercise classes outdoors to parking lots or local parks. Others started streaming classes to members online. Despite these creative solutions, members rely on equipment and the motivation a gym visit provides to truly stay in shape.

As gyms slowly reopen and fitness facilities strive to re-engage their members, CCI has an easy cleaning solution designed to keep both members and employees safe. Shortly after the outbreak of COVID-19, CCI headed to the lab to create a new Sanitizer & Disinfectant to provide its employees with a new service to generate sales during this unprecedented time. The mobile leader in leather and vinyl repair developed a hospital-grade cleaner, deodorizer and sanitizer designed for use on a variety of surfaces. The cleaner can be sprayed on surfaces and allowed to air dry, rather than having to be wiped off, saving employees valuable cleaning time. CCI’s cleaner is an EPA-registered germicidal disinfectant that is both environmentally friendly and hypo-allergenic, which will appeal to your health-conscious members. The new cleaner is available for purchase in bulk so your gym can stay stocked up on cleaning supplies.

In addition to helping keep your gym free of the novel coronavirus, CCI can help you recoup lost sales by ensuring your interior is in superior shape. Today’s discerning clients appreciate exercising in a space that is well maintained. Millennial consumers are willing to spend big money on fitness centers with amenities and group classes, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times. CCI can come to your facility to repair, restore or replace any damage to leather or fabric furniture. Weights and gym equipment can do a number on vinyl floors. CCI can save you up to 90 percent in expenses by making repairs to your vinyl floor versus replacing it.
