Charging Public Stations for Smart Fitness
Our professional charging solutions focus on offering a safe and unique charging experience through the use of mobile chargers designed for the fitness sector: gyms, sports centers, health areas, or any health area with changing rooms or a reception hall.
The implementation of Yupcharge mobile chargers is an additional service to be offered within spaces focused on the sports field, such as their installation in sports clubs where our charge lockers are ideal for high user demand. In addition, we have an extensive range that adapts to any type of space.
To increase the satisfaction of the members of the club or sports center, the fact that they can have this free charging service through charging stations or ticket offices is an advantage that they will take into account when associating to the club as a benefit.
This type of charging stations for gyms is also useful for their installation in the reception of a sports club or sports federations; it is not exclusive for changing rooms.
Thanks to the mobile phone chargers for gyms designed by Yupcharge, it is possible to improve the resources available to members while they are using the sports facilities.
In order for your customers to benefit from this innovative mobile charging service, all they have to do is contact us to clear up any possible doubts they may have about our chargers and add their sports center to the Yupcharge revolution.
The users, members or clients of the center will be more satisfied with their club because they will not have the typical fear of the member “running out of battery while exercising”.
Now, thanks to Yupcharge technology, when a member does not carry his or her own charger to charge his or her mobile device and is inside the gym or sports center, he or she will know that this service is available, where he or she can safely charge his or her mobile with complete peace of mind.
In addition to the benefits, we have already highlighted for a gym that installs this type of charging stations, lockers or chargers. Due to the service you offer to your clients, you will be able to amortize investment by using our mobile chargers as advertising supports, ideal for gym chains.
Yupcharge is more than just a charger; it is a powerful and economical proximity-marketing tool.

How do gyms or sports centers benefit from including charging stations in their facilities?
- At a time when there is a special dependence on the use of mobile devices, installing public mobile phone chargers for common areas in our sports clubs or gyms will increase the sense of innovation in the center by members and their visitors.
- They will feel that the fitness center seeks to offer them free upgrades in the space that makes the member’s stay in the sports facilities more enjoyable.
- Improve your experience in the gym and the feeling of technological innovation, thus increasing the likelihood of recommendations to friends and family by members.
- A free service so that you can charge your mobile devices when required is a very common need among athletes who go to a gym, so its installation will increase the interest of future members to join the club.
- It allows customers to be connected to the outside, listen to music from their mobile while they exercise and share the experience “in situ” on social networks, becoming the best business prescribers.
- Thanks to the mobile chargers for wellness areas, both visitors to our spa center and their regular customers will no longer depend on having their external batteries always charged (power banks) and will be able to count on a totally safe and free charging service.
Today, we cannot live without our mobile phones and we carry them with us every day at all times. But what happens when our battery runs out of charge while we’re still training in the gym? And what if we don’t have a nearby charger to recharge our mobile device?
The most common solution is to look for a socket in which we can charge our mobile and ask a colleague in the center or sports monitor if it has a charger that you can lend for a while to charge the mobile.
As a solution in Yupcharge we offer our charging solutions or charging stations designed for use by people in the fitness and wellness sector. Offering this type of free service is an investment that we recommend for different reasons.
- It improves brand perception, as the latest technologies are available in these sports centers.
- It improves the experience of the member during his presence in the center, as he will not have to waste time when he needs to carry out one of these charges or be aware of the mobile while charging.
- With Yupcharge chargers, you guarantee a safe (no risk of data hacking), and effective (fast charge without damaging the battery of the mobile) charge.
- They are a very effective advertising medium that helps you to amortize the investment.
- Depending on the location, the dimensions of the sports center and its common spaces, the frequency of passage of customers or partners may choose a different type of charger: desktop stations, lockers or totems.
