Does Your Locker Room Need A TV?
Do you have televisions in your locker room? Some people consider televisions in the locker room a perk, while others find them an unwelcome distraction. How do you know which direction to go when designing your locker room? Let’s break down the pros and cons.
- Pro: Televisions in the locker room can build a sense of comradery. What better place to watch the game than with your buddies at the gym? For team locker rooms, the television can be a place to review game footage.
- Con: Watching TV together is sometimes a divisive activity. Sporting events can promote rivalry, and even the news can be controversial. And it may be better to not even think about turning the TV on during an election year!
- Pro: Televisions could give your club a high-end look. A sleek, flat screen can look very appealing, mounted on the locker room wall. It signals to guests that you are not afraid to invest in their comfort.
- Con: Televisions can be damaged, or stolen. High humidity, rowdy behavior and low surveillance are all factors to consider when trying to determine if TV’s are a good fit for your organization.
- Pro: Televisions provide distraction. Some people like to be distracted from what they’re doing while they prepare for a game.
- Con: Sometimes people come to the gym to escape distraction. In that case, a television is an unwelcome intrusion when people are trying to focus. Televisions are so ubiquitous in our culture today, seen in doctor’s offices, restaurants, nail salons and more. Many people are of the opinion that there should be an oasis where no televisions intrude.
