Choosing the right gym can be a stressful and time-consuming process, and it is often tempting to choose the gym with the cheapest membership, but don’t be fooled by the low price tag. Here are five tips to make choosing a gym a fun and exciting experience.
Location - The most difficult part about working out is getting to the gym. If the club is far away, you’re less likely going to go.
Atmosphere Put yourself in a fail safe environment. You need to know what kind of environment you’ll be putting yourself into. Is it high-energy? Is it loud? Is it mellow? Different times of the day have different atmospheres, so you’ll want to know which one fits you best. And of course, you’ll want to make sure it’s not so crowded that you can’t use the equipment or get in a class. Sometimes, a good atmosphere is the difference between getting in shape and staying home.
Class Schedule - A gym with a good variety of classes gives you more reasons to workout and helps keep your routine fresh. Make sure your gym has classes that fit your schedule.
Staff/Expertise - Is the staff friendly and knowledgeable? These are the people who will be there to help you get acquainted with the gym, so make sure you feel comfortable with the staff.
Reputation - How long has the gym been around? What kinds of experiences have other people had? Ask co-workers and friends why they like their gym; people with long-time memberships can give you a very different perspective on a club.GO BACK
