Finding the Right Fitness Gym
Searching for the right fitness gym can be a very difficult task. I look at it as if you’re almost getting into a new relationship. There are many, many options to choose from and all of them have something that makes their gym “special” or different. Personally when I look for a gym I look for three main things, convenience, atmosphere, and price. A lot of gyms try and push their shiny new equipment or big Olympic size pools but I barely care about those things. For the convenient side of things, I look for their hour of operation. If the times they are open work with my busy schedule. Also location, how far am I going to have to drive? Or how close is it to school or work? Having all of these things covered would make the gym a very convenient place to go. If the gym I’m choosing to go to is across town or I have to squeeze the time in whenever they are open, I would less likely go on a regular basis. The next thing I like to look at is the atmosphere, how is the gym set up, what’s going on around the equipment, is it spacious? Because once I get to the gym I want to be able to enjoy my surroundings. I don’t want to be running on the treadmill super close to some sweaty, stinky person or squeezing past the body builder to get a mat. The last thing I look for would be price. Because I am a college student price does affect my decision, but I also think that you pay for what you get. So, sometimes you have to pay a little extra for things you want. Not only do I look at the monthly fees but I also factor in the initial start up costs. Most gyms now days have stamped a big price tag just on joining a gym! I think this is crazy and not necessary. If all of these things work out in my favor, then I would most definitely join that gym.
