24 access

So i wanted to throw this out there to all the gym owners on here. Does anyone currently have or looking into having 24 hour access for gym members when classes are not going on. I would love to pick your brains about this idea.

I know there are probably a lot of concerns with this but if done right i think it would be a good way for a gym to stick out in the market.

Here is what i was thinking along the lines of memberships
- 3 classes a week membership price
- unlimited classes per week membership price
- 24 hour access membership price

Re: 24 access

One of the rules in the affiliate agreement is a certified CF trainer must be present at all times on the floor (that people are working out at least, presumably). So, even if we can get past the big safety and QC issues with this, someone has to get paid to be there 24/7. Maybe if you have a bunch of unpaid soldier interns or students with odd hours bartering a membership doing it for free you could assign it to them, but I doubt that would last. I could see gyms having lots of open gym hours where resources and staff are plentiful, but like 5am-10pm is about all that I can imagine being reasonably worth it IMHO. The CF gym model will never be able to effectively emulate the features of scale in 24 hour fitness model, nor is this desirable (having highly dispersed attendance and people doing whatever they want kills the community aspect, one of our strongest if not the defining quality).
