|Check out what Keith Marin has to say about his experience with healthy vending machines:
When you think of a YMCA, would an unhealthy lifestyle come to mind? Absolutely not!
So why is it so many YMCAs offer junk food from vending machines?
Keith Marin, Associate Member Services Director at Northwest YMCA in Cupertino, CA, knew there had to be a change.
Northwest YMCA is a pioneer in the healthy vending movement. With 5 million junk food machines in the country, Northwest YMCA is making a proactive decision that will benefit the lives of their members.

|“Our mission is helping kids make better choices, but if we allow poor nutrition to be a choice then we decrease our credibility, that’s why we partnered with H.U.M.A.N. We look at promoting health as a leadership issue. If you say you care about your kids, or even employees, but then promote the same old poor choices then you’re killing your own message. If you want healthier kids or employees, then you have to make that message part of your culture. That means not only talking about it, but bringing it in into action.”
- Jason Sears, Director of the Ada County Boys and Girls Club
|“I wanted to send you some photos of the vending units at Sarasota. They look phenomenal and we have been getting great customer feedback. I have even noticed certain products have become our shopper’s favorites and are the first to run low and require re-stocking. We have had no complaints as to machine glitches or transactional issues, which is very appreciated by our staff. Thanks so much for all of the strong communication and for such a great addition to Sarasota.”

“I have seen a H.U.M.A.N vending machine at Master’s Academy in Calgary and it has many excellent and healthy options for kids, teachers, and parents alike. The program offers state-of-the-art vending machines that don’t “eat” the change and fail to dispense product (as the current ones have a habit of doing), uses far less energy, increases profits and is easy to use.” ~ Halley Prestage, Parent of 2, Calgary, Alberta
“Hi Sean! Vending machine is BEAUTIFUL!! I actually gave your information to someone today because they liked the machine and maybe they will install one at their gym.” ~ Tricia Pokorney, Membership Director, Sarasota Family YMCA
“The Healthy Vending Program has added the perfect solution to our Vending Program. We now can provide healthy alternatives to our customers 24 hours-a-day. The feedback we have received has confirmed the Healthy Vending Program was the right decision improving our customer satisfaction.” ~ Tom Dooley, Director of Food and Nutrition Services at Mt. Sinai Hospital
“I really like having the HUMAN healthy vending machine in my club. Before I bought it, I had retail on shelves with a sign that said “available for purchase during staffed hours”. I received several comments from members saying, “what if I’m never here during staffed hours?” The challenge of an Anytime Fitness is making sure all members feel tended to – regardless of whether or not we are there when they are. The HUMAN healthy vending machine helps me offer all of my members the same services Because I could only sell products if I was there, I was missing out on selling lotion to all of my late night tanners, or selling earphones to the members who do their cardio to the big Sunday ball games. Now we even point it out as a 24-hour convenience feature to perspective members. They all love the option to scan their key and charge a product! Nobody wants to (or remembers to) bring money into a gym. And I always felt a little uneasy, even with the cameras, about leaving products out in the open while I was gone. Now my products are safely displayed in the lighted, cool vending machine, and I’m not worried about people “sampling” from my retail shelves.” ~Jenny, Anytime Fitness Gym owner
“HUMAN is a very professional company with excellent service and everyone I’ve met is personable. The company has good communication with client and the technology is superior. The machine is very easy to use and to figure out how to set up when loading the drinks and bars. It’s all very convenient, the members all love the fact they don’t need to break out their wallet, they just swipe their key fob for payment.” ~ Steve, GM of Anytime Fitness in Beaumont, CA
|“My members love the convenience of the machine and how easy it is to use. Also they think the technology is pretty amazing with the key fob. The key fob is the main selling point for us. It’s a ‘no-brainer’. Most members would not spend the time to get their wallet but with the fob it increases sales because of the simplicity. I imagine credit card technology is equally as helpful.”
