Summary: Here are the top 6 things you should consider when picking out a gym to make sure it fits your needs.

Last week I discussed why you shouldn’t be intimidated to join a gym, or workout class, if that’s what is going to keep you motivated this winter. Now that I’ve encouraged you to join a gym if you want to, here are some things to consider when picking out a gym:



Location – If your gym isn’t really close to your home or to your work, then you’re not going to make the effort to go. Plain and simple. If it’s not easy to get to, then it’s not worth your money. Find a closer one.

Cost – The nicer the gym, the more it costs. Gyms in cities also tend to cost more than out in the suburbs or smaller towns. Definitely take a look at your budget and figure out how much you can spend on a gym.

Classes – Do you like workout classes or want to give them a shot? Be sure to look at their class list and schedule before signing up for a gym. Some gyms have a ton of classes and options, while others might have few or none.

Machinery – First and foremost: do they have the machines you think you’ll use (cardio or weight)? If no, leave. If yes – how many? Do you think you’ll have to wait long during peak hours? Is it quality equipment?

Locker Rooms – Personally, I don’t worry about my gym’s locker rooms because I rarely use them. However, if you’re going to shower and change for work at your gym, be sure to check out the locker rooms and make sure you won’t be cringing.

Gym Size – If you want to know everyone at the gym and work closely with a great trainer, a small gym is probably for you. But, if you want to disappear into the crowd and just have time to yourself, go with the big gym. Just remember that big gyms treat you like a number, not a person, but to some of us that’s worth it for the cost and machinery.
