When it comes to installing lights into your gym, there are many options you can choose from. If you ask us, however, we always recommend LED lights. Here’s why:
Most gyms are full of reflective surfaces such as equipment, machines, and mirrors. These things reflect glare from lights super easily, which can be very distracting for your members.
LED lights have the benefit that they offer full illumination with little glare. This way, your members can see what they’re doing without any annoying glares or reflections.
Long Life Span
If you own or run a busy gym, the last thing you want to be doing is constantly replacing light bulbs. Fortunately, with LED lights, you won’t have to!
LED lights have a significantly longer lifespan than alternative lights. The average incandescent light can operate for 1000 hours, whilst the average LED light can operate 50 times that amount!
LED lights also operate 2-4 times longer than fluorescent, metal halide and sodium vapour lights.
Using LED lights will not only save you time and money on replacement but will also save you time and money on maintenance.
Dimming and Control Capabilities
Arguably the biggest reason LED lights are so popular amongst gyms is because they are dimmable and easy to control. This means you can reduce the intensity of your studio’s lighting if you’re instructing a low-key class such as Yoga or Pilates and increase it if you’re instructing HIIT or Circuit Training.
Compared to other types of lighting, LED lights are drastically more energy efficient. Therefore, installing LED lights into your gym will not only reduce the carbon footprint of your business, but will also save you money on your energy bill - money which can be spent upgrading your equipment and fitness machines!
Unlike other lighting types, LEDs switch on instantly without the need to warm up or brighten gradually. Because of this, they can be used in dynamic or colour changing light installations such as those often found in Spin Studios and Cardio Rooms.
Installing LED lights also gives you greater flexibility when it comes to the design of your gym’s lighting. As LEDs are very small, you can build up the intensity of your studio’s lighting as desired.
