Health Clubs and gyms, How do you decide which one to join? One of the great mysteries of a fitness plan is how to decide which health club, gym or fitness center is the right one for you.
Most people go around and ask people they know which on to join and over the year I have belonged to a half dozen of so health clubs or gyms.
The Decision to join a gym
Congratulations on your decision to join a Gym. This is one decision that once you follow through with, and keep up your level of commitment will forever change your life and how you relate to people, food and exercise.
There is initially on joining a gym or health club an excitement in the future and a real clarity of purpose.
I have never felt the excitement of being in a gym by doing any kind of other exercise.
Health clubs are a business and since you are going to be doing business with a Health Club you should be armed with information and the ability to make a decision based on what is important to you and not what is pitched to your by the health club salesman.
I want to be very clear here, the onus is on you to decide what you want and need in a health club and the nice lady or mans job is simply to have you join their club.
What I will do within this series is educate you on what is important to think about and after that you can make the decision yourself, armed with the knowledge that you need to take that health club sales pitch head on and rebut it.
The Process of Finding A Gym
In these next few articles I will help you to create a checklist of what is important when you go out looking for fitness center to join.
We will uncover staff and what to look for, membership hours, fitness equipment, health club amenities, classes worth taking or not and of course the price that you should pay and how to decide what is fair.
If you already belong to a gym, fine, this may allow you to reevaluate whether you are at the right place and if you do not belong to a gym you will probably be joining one soon and I hope all the information you will find will help you make an informed decision on what kind of health club is for you.
