The gym is usually a well equipped area with all the latest fitness equipment and well designed for you to exercise in an environment where you can get maximum benefit in a given time frame. The equipment is definitely a plus when joining a gym as you can never buy all this equipment yourself.

Another factor that should influence your decision in a positive way is that you will get help of personal trainer which will help you exercise better and with more emphasis on producing results from the limited amount of time. The gym will usually have very experienced instructors for each class who can guide on ach and every aspect of fitness.

Now the cons of joining a gym all this mentioned above costs money and you need to then weigh the options as to how much you are willing to pay for the desired fitness. Most likely the personal trainers do not give free classes in the gym. Most good gyms have personal trainers where they charge an approximately $ 2000-3000 for a set of 10-15 classes. This is a huge amount of money spent for fitness.

Apart from the money factor you become a slave of the habit of going to the gym and once you stop going to the gym then you will go start tor regain weight. Ideally the best scenario would be to find out a good jogging track to get that exercise yourself. It will gradually become a habit for you to run a few miles everyday. Then you should shun using equipment to build muscles. A lot of emphasis is now being put on using your body weight to build muscles.
