How To Select A Suitable Fitness Club

May 16, 2008
If getting fit is difficult for you to achieve on your own, a good alternative is to join a fitness club where they can motivate you but you will need to choose one that suits you! Finding the right one will be much simpler if you know what it is you want to get out of it. Whilst that is important, there are some other factors to consider before you make your final decision. Try to locate a club that is not to far away because you are more likely to continue going if it is only a short distance.

Having a decent well qualified instructor is the next most important as a good instructor will encourage you to not only attend but to keep the fitness training up. Your instructor will need to know if you have physical limitations and if that is the case if he or she is qualified to train you. Appearances can be deceptive but the attitude of the staff when you ask them about the club and any other special services they can offer will tell you a great deal about how the club is run. If the fitness club you are looking at has its own professional physiotherapist and dietician for example, you can bet the club is serious about their commitment to members.

Try to find a club with flexible opening hours because it is no good if you can only attend in the evening when they are closed. If you have a desire to have special classes, aerobics for instance, check to see if the fitness club has these and can let you have a free trial. Check if there is enough equipment for all the members otherwise, you will waste time waiting for your turn instead of working out. It never hurts to check out the exercise machines they have, and that you will find them easy to operate plus they should all be clean and well maintained.

Many clubs have a good social calendar which is worth noting and attending to get to know a few people who are members that may be able to help you with your training in the future. Checking the cost of membership is probably the last thing you need to do but you also need to find out if they increase it regularly every year and if there are any other costs they haven't told you about.

You would be wise to visit a number of clubs locally because they all differ and you need to join one that you like and not because of other, less important reasons. Take your time, there is no hurry and be wary of clubs that continue to contact you about membership as there is a fine line between a courteous approach and pestering.
