Our daytime positions are incredibly important to us. They are the ones that are interacting with our members most often, especially in the evening. A typically day as a day time staff member consists of three things. The first is keeping things clean. Each shift begins with a two hour cleaning shift that will help keep our facility spotless. Therefore, we have it broken down to a very specific cleaning regimen that you can follow. For instance, the morning and evening cleaning shifts focus mainly on the bathroom and tanning rooms. This compares to the afternoon shifts which primarily focus on the gym floors. Besides this, we want to keep everything fixed. That being said, it is our responsibility to make sure that any equipment that is broken is reported. Finally, loving on people is the third goal of the day.
Now, taking care of our members is an essential part of being part of gyms in Oklahoma City. Hospitality has to be a huge portion of what we do day in and day out. There are a few ways that we do this. First, we greet everyone within five seconds of entering the building. Often times we try to call them by name to make sure they feel seen. Besides that, we also smile with our eyes and with our teeth. A greeting does not actually feel welcoming if the person is not smiling. At that point, it only feels like a script.
Therefore, we train it into our employees to make sure our members feel welcome. This all occurs at the front desk. Similarly, this is where most conversations happen between staff and members. Away from the front desk, we also acknowledge people within a ten foot radius of us. We call this the ten-foot-rule.
Our overnight staff is absolutely essential. They begin their shift at 10pm and work ten hours until 8am when a manager arrives. The overnight team does the majority of the cleaning in our facility. As a rule, the gym is generally less busy at 3am than it is at 3pm. That is why we have them clean during the nighttime. Most of our overnight does a great job at doing extra things that are not even on their list. This goes to show just how essential they are to our team in displaying an A-Player. Besides that, we also have them log a majority of the paperwork that we receive. For instance, whenever a new guest comes into our gyms in Oklahoma City, they fill out forms. Our overnight team takes these forms and enters them into our software system.
