21 Reasons Your Gym Needs a Towel Rental Service

A towel rental program for your gym does more than just save you money; it helps the environment, improves customer satisfaction, and makes you and your employees’ lives easier. Here are 21 reasons why your gym needs a towel rental service instead of using a paper towel system or laundering towels you purchase and maintain on your own.



Having a towel service makes your customers feel valued. The number of gym members you have directly determines your revenue- it pays to make them happy. Improved satisfaction means more word of mouth advertising among their family and friends, which then leads to (you guessed it) more member sign ups! So why do customers think a towel service is such a great benefit?

  1. They do not have to carry their own with them, making it easier to get ready for or pack for the gym.
  2. Customers who enjoy their morning workouts may need to shower for work immediately after. Having a towel available for them gives them one less thing to worry about while rushing around in the morning.
  3. Providing towels for the shower, pool, and for sweat means your customers do not have to travel with wet towels in their gym bag or car. If they shower after a morning workout or go for a morning swim, they could have to keep a wet towel with them or in their car all day long… yuck!

It’s green! Companies and customers alike are becoming more environmentally conscience. So much so, that customers are even paying more for products and services provided by businesses who are green.

  1. Your Linen Service has the ability to wash very large loads with less water and energy usage than it would take for smaller household washers to launder the same amount.
  2. Many gyms offer paper towels or sanitizing wipes to clean equipment, which creates bags full of chemically treated, landfill filling waste.
  3. Paper towels dry out or rip easily, meaning your members may use 2-3 towels for just cleaning one machine! A rental towel can be used for your members’ entire workout.

Towel rental service makes things easier for you and your employees. Employee satisfaction is just as important as customer satisfaction. Happier employees go the extra mile to ensure happy customers!
