Why Gyms Choose Messenger

The UK’s 9.9 million consumers go to the gym to burn calories, increase their strength and get fit – but if they are not careful, they may come home with more than they bargained for. According to independent research by Fitrated and widely publicized in the media 76% of gym equipment is contaminated with infectious bacterial including faecal bacteria. The huge number of gym members who touch gym equipment daily, is colossal, and so comes as no surprise that surfaces are less than spotless.

The hard facts are that gym users and staff risk spreading bacteria and increasing Gym Acquired Infections [G.A.I’s] .That in turn can lead to illnesses, possible compensation claims, and any negative PR that will effect membership numbers. This issue is not lost on gym owners and explains why Messenger, our digital signage solution, has proven instantly popular within the fitness industry and why gym members will use hand sanitiser dispensers and therefore engage with the digital screens.

What is Messenger?

Messenger is the perfect digital signage solution. Messenger is a unique hand sanitiser unit with a built-in 21-inch digital screen that plays silent adverts in 10-second loops throughout the day. The digital screen is installed into 700 gyms, leisure centres, health clubs and studios across the UK. Below the screen, a contactless dispenser releases the perfect dose of Sterizar sanitiser liquid, killing 99.999% of bacteria and lasting for up to 6 hours on the user’s hands.
