Snack machines are everywhere and have been a part of our day to day life for many years. Even if you’ve never used one, no doubt you’ve seen the machines that disperse snack foods and drinks in various locations.
With the spotlight on obesity and diabetes in this country, a healthy vending machine can help by providing healthy food choices to your patrons and could make a difference in their lives.
Over time, simple snack machines have been slowly evolving into fresh and healthy vending machines that offer fresh and healthy food and drinks for consumers. This type of business has become more popular with an increasingly health conscious public.
The Rise of Healthy Vending Machines in Gyms and Health Clubs
The growth rate of vending machines installed in gyms and other health related businesses has grown at a phenomenal rate over the past 10 years and is only set to get even bigger. The variety of health focused products plus the variety of payment options available have made it even easier for consumers to get their healthy snacks and drinks even if they don’t have cash.
They have contributed to the future of the gym and fitness industry as more and more Australians are now embracing better diets and healthier lifestyles. There is even new legislation in schools that is enforcing healthier snacks for children. These regulations, along with the ever increasing health and fitness trend has energized the “healthy vending machine” movement.
Gym workouts and diet plans
Staying fit and healthy is necessary for our lifestyle, and the first port of call for most people is to sign up at a gym or health club. However, just working out isn’t enough if you want to not only get healthy but also lose a few kilos. As a fitness and health business owner a healthy snack machine can be a fantastic business opportunity to not only promote the health and fitness message to your clients but its also profitable too!
In order to succeed with your health, fitness and weight-loss goals, you need to exercise and also pay attention to your diet. So as a gym or health and fitness centre owner you already have a captive health focused clientele and a healthy vending machine is a lucrative way to provide nutritious food, supplements and drinks to your customers.
Why healthy vending machines are set up at the gym
The vending machine is the most effective way to provide nutritious products for gym members for before, during and after their workout. Since it has an automated delivery system, it can operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and without the need for extra staff.
Gyms are by nature all about fitness and health, so they need to be consistent in delivering their health message not just in fitness and exercise but also in other areas, particularly diet. So a regular snack machine with lollies, chips and soft drinks just doesn’t carry the right message, but a healthy vending machine providing healthy snacks, supplements, protein bars and juices does.
