Save time and money with a cost effective gym door entry system that gives your business the competitive advantage.

Providing Secure Access Around the Clock

GymMaster’s Access Control System provides a convenient and secure way for you to manage access to your facility.
Our network-based reader is designed as a low cost, reliable way for you to have full control over which doors your members can use, at which time.

GymMaster also allows you to programme varying levels of access for each membership programme, both by time and door, giving you the flexibility to offer a wide range of memberships with ease.

Free Yourself From the Front Desk

Reclaim your work-life balance with an automated access control system that remains working even when you’re not.

GymMaster Tailgating

The GymMaster Tailgating solution streamlines and improves the detection of tailgating. The system uses a camera to monitor movement and compares it to the visitor log.

If suspicious activity is detected, a second camera takes a photo and logs it in the database for later review. This automates what has previously been a manual process, greatly reducing the admin time involved.

Save Time and Money

Every gym has some quiet times where few, if any, members use the facility. With automated access control, your members can still enjoy your facility without the need for your staff to be physically present.

You can implement GymMaster’s access control system for as little as $600.00 plus key fobs/cards from only $1.80 each – significantly less than traditional security system cards.

Reduce administrative time sinks and lower your wage costs. Allow yourself more time to work on, improve and build your business.

Reduce Admin Hassle

Full integration of your systems greatly reduces the need to maintain two separate lists of members. You can quickly and easily check a member’s visit history without having to log into another program. When a membership expires in GymMaster, the effect is immediately applied to the key tag, so there’s no need for double entry. Their concession memberships and bookings are instantly recognized as they visit as well.

Access Control provides a range of ways to monitor your members as well as ensuring problems are quickly discovered and fixed, rather than simply going unnoticed. Reception can be alerted to members who have missed payments, or simply deny them access if they become too far overdue.

Having the check-in system linked within your gym software to the billing system saves double handling from an administrative perspective.

Compete with 24/7 Facilities

Gain the competitive advantage by offering 24 hour access with GymMaster. It’s the most simple and inexpensive way to expand your operating hours, improve your place in the market, and increase your revenue.

You can easily offer 24 hour access to either select membership plans or across the board. It’s up to you!

Visitor Patterns

Monitoring the flow of your members into your facility is easy, with detailed visitor history providing you with insights as to when your resources are most valuable.

Be alerted when particular members’ attendance begins to fall off, and set up automatic communication to keep them motivated. GymMaster makes identifying at risk members easy, helping to keep them engaged, increasing your member retention.

The GateKeeper Gym Access Control System

Access and Security

Allows secure and controlled gym access for members and employees 24/7. The card reader can be set at multiple doors and/or turnstiles and entry to each can be configured based on the membership type. You can also refuse entry for any expired memberships or members who have not paid.

While it is independent from your security system, your security system can be wired to the GateKeeper to deactivate alarms.


The GateKeeper connects to readers via your network, which links directly to the client’s membership records. You can easily assign username and passwords to employees to gain visibility of their use.

GymMaster flags members owing money and those with expiring memberships, helping staff be more proactive with those clients.

Should the network access to the member database go down for any reason, the Gatekeeper will continue to operate, relying temporarily on previous history.

Membership Monitoring

GymMaster tracks member visits, allowing staff to encourage regular visitors or welcome back those that have been away, helping both groups achieve their fitness goals through supportive coaching and excellent customer service. The system can also send automated emails to absent clients at risk of cancelling their memberships.

GymMaster can track members’ use of your facility, helping to identify who is in need of encouragement to achieve their fitness goals. The system can be set to send automated emails or sms messages to memberships identified to be at risk of cancelling. Returning members are also identified to reception so they are aware that extra attention may be required to rebuild enthusiasm.
The member’s photo is displayed upon entry, and all entry times are recorded. This can help with security, and to assist with identifying members who are possibly sharing tags.

GymMaster integrates with the RFID system to create reports based on members’ entry and use of your facility.
Alerts can be set up to be sent from the GateKeeper to any computer, tablet or mobile device that is connected to the network. Any device connected to the network can also issue NFC membership cards (in some Android phones) allowing you even more freedom from the front desk.

Access Control Your Way

Time controlled access can readily be switched over to 24/7 access when you are ready to make the change.

You will have the ability to assign different membership plan access during regular hours, off peak or full 24/7 access. You can also manage members’ access based on their membership type.

This allows gym access for clients to be personally configured and easily changed with their membership status.
Access to areas of the gym can be configured depending on time, membership type or staff seniority. You can even set up specific doors to create an area accessible only by women.
