Vycel: providing gyms with powerful virus protection

Vycel Technology protects against viruses by delivering a positively charged water-based antimicrobial spray, creating a mist that evenly coats and wraps surfaces
Anytime Fitness has partnered with Vycel to create a safe and disinfected environment, free of bacteria and viruses to protect staff and members alike – giving everyone peace of mind when training.

Trialled at its Chelmsford club and now being rolled out to other franchisees, Vycel has impressed with how easily and efficiently it can disinfect spaces.

The Vycel Electrostatic Sprayer protects against viruses by delivering a positively charged water-based antimicrobial spray, creating a mist that is drawn to surfaces, evenly coating and wrapping them throughout the clubs, including equipment and kit, changing rooms and lockers.

Every surface is disinfected, leaving viruses nowhere to hide.

As a result, the club has experienced a drastic reduction in costs of blue roll, antibacterial spray and staff time spent cleaning – having a positive effect on the bottom line.

Adam Rhodes, franchisee, says: “It takes only 15 minutes to disinfect the entire club (6,000sq ft) which we do three times per day.

“The members love that we’re not only acting in their best interest to protect them but also that we’re using a more sustainable product and reducing waste.”

Ben Dixon, Anytime Fitness’ chief development officer, says: “When I was initially introduced to Vycel I knew it would become an important part of our everyday strategy to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

“Yes, we still need to clean the equipment to remove dirt, dust and sweat, but that isn’t enough to eradicate the threat of spreading the virus.

“We needed a solution for our disinfection regime that’s not only effective in protecting our members and staff but also reduces our use of blue roll and staff time spent cleaning.

“Vycel is proving to be a seamless solution to both these problems and I encourage all our franchisees to adopt Vycel in their clubs.”
