It’s another year, and another Minnesotan winter bearing down on us as we do our best to survive the snow dumps and polar vortices. If you manage an apartment, condo, or another multi-unit dwelling here in Minnesota, you know that for potential residents it’s all about location, location, location. And while there’s not much you can do about the inclement weather, you can offer amenities to make managing the cold a little bit easier.
Minnesotans get more exercise on average than the vast majority of the country, and with our frigid winters, few people will be more appreciative of living in a place that lets them bring their traditionally outdoor workout activities indoors during the winter months. If you’re not offering a workout room to current and potential residents (or if your workout room is nothing but a room full of worn-out medicine balls), an investment in this amenity could be the factor that helps get someone to sign their name on that new lease.
Make your building the most appealing on the street
If you’ve got the space, we’ve got the equipment. Whether you’re filling out a giant, new-build workout suite or you’ve finally cleaned out that grungy little back room and want to turn it into an appealing, money-making building amenity, we’re here to cover your back.
As a training-first gym, we know first-hand what type of equipment effective gym-goers like to use every day. You don’t need a room full of unnecessary and bulky single-purpose machines; even a relatively small space can be a great workout room if you stock it with the functional, flexible, high-quality equipment that can be used for any purpose. From barbells to benches to resistance bands, kettlebells, and even rubber flooring & mats, The Gym MPLS sells the equipment you need to fill out an appealing, accessible, and usable workout room at your apartment or condominium building.
However, focusing on the KISS principle doesn’t mean you can cheap out in the short term. New, high-quality equipment will keep your residents satisfied, look great to potential tenants, and stand the test of time. That’s why we only stock brands that we ourselves know will appeal to gym-goers and last long enough for you to make money on your workout room investment. And don’t worry about having to move all this heavy equipment in and out yourself; we’ll happily haul out all your old, worn-out weights and equipment and bring in/install all the new stuff–after all, we’re used to lifting these weights!
