I’ve been thinking about joining a gym or health club for a very long time.
I don’t have any real excuses, but I’ve been putting it off for at least two years.
If I joined a gym would I actually make use of my membership? Anyone I know who has joined seems to go for a few weeks and then lets it slip.
Most gyms seem to work on the basis of annual membership. This is probably how they make their money, as people have a tendency of signing up for a year and then not actually attending.
But how do you go about choosing a gym?
What kind of things should you be looking out for?
Why is gym A better than gym B?
Is cost alone the main factor or are the other ones that you need to take into account?
What are the monthly costs?
Are there discounts available? I’ve heard anecdotal evidence of deals being offered via certain banks for example, but mine doesn’t seem to be involved.
I’m still sitting on the fence…
