Bringing Hands-Free, Reliable Door Access to Health Clubs

Gym entry systems have long conjured thoughts of difficult management and maintenance, intermittent access and limited automation in the gym. Outdated, finicky, and expensive club entry systems shouldn’t be the norm, but many health clubs rely on outdated gym access that run off a local PC. 

A modern cloud-based solution with cutting-edge tech

It’s time for a sleek, a modern, hands-free access gym entry system for fitness clubs. ABC Door Access by  Openpath’s  revolutionary  hands-free technology allows the locked phone in your pocket, gym bag, or purse to grant gym access – no need to fumble for a fob or open an app.

Patented Triple-Unlock technology and cloud-based management ensures gym members and front desk staff can quickly access the fitness facility. Not only does this add extra security by leveraging biometric and multi-factor authentication built-in to the user’s smartphone, but multiple signals make sure that members can access the gym even if the internet is down.

Smart technology and simple controls can free up staff from the front desk to focus on gym members.

Compliments, not complaints

While RFID key cards and gym fobs are still supported entry systems, this mobile-first solution has seen more than 94% adoption. Club owners on the platform have already started to phase out physical access methods, resulting in fewer headaches to manage inventory and accommodate lost or forgotten keycards.

Openpath certified installers bring over 30 years of experience and ensure onboarding at your fitness facility is quick and seamless, without the ongoing challenges that low-voltage, local installers cause. Backed by a 30-day installation satisfaction guarantee and lifetime-warrantied hardware, switching is simple. ABC Door Access by Openpath provides operators with the modern convenience, full-access control, and the 24/7 support necessary (directly through ABC’s support) to efficiently run their business.
