What’s the best way to choose the right gym for you? With the number of options that are out there, the process can feel more overwhelming than you might have expected.
Not all gyms are alike, so how can you narrow down your choices? Here are a few tips to help you choose the right gym for you:
1. Make sure it’s convenient.
One of the factors that will help you stick to a consistent workout routine at your new gym is convenience. When your gym is close to your house or your work, then there is one less obstacle standing in your way. Once you’ve figured out if the location is a good fit, also check out the gym’s class schedule. Are the class times convenient for your daily schedule? If you need to work out before work, make sure that the gym has classes that will work with your scheduling needs.
2. Do the program options fit you and your goals?
If you’re the type of person who prefers small group classes, make sure that your gym offers this as a program. Or, if you’re interested in personal training, either now or sometime in the future, is this an option? At the same time, do the programs and classes align with your personal goals? Will you be able to achieve your fitness goals or get the results you’re looking for?
3. Get a feel for the community and atmosphere.
The more comfortable you feel at a gym, the more likely you are to go regularly. It might sound a little weird, but it’s worth visiting a gym before committing to anything so that you get a sense of the staff, coaches, and the community.
4. What value do the coaches and instructors add?
If you’re looking for a more personalized approach from your coaches and instructors, make sure this is offered at your gym of choice. Look for staff members who are engaged with the members in a class. A coach who takes an interest in you and what you’re working toward is more likely to help and support you in the pursuit of your goals.
