What to Know before Joining a Gym

Thinking of joining a gym to work on your fitness goals in 2015? Then this week’s Tighten + Tone Tuesday episode was made for you!

Before you join (and even if you have joined!) a gym near you, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure you select a gym worth that’s worth the commitment.  All of these tips boil down to the two main reasons why people struggle to stick to their fitness routines and are based on my near decade of experience working in gyms.

Why put thought into joining a gym, instead of Nike-ing it up (just doing it)? Word on the street is that 9 out of 10 people who join a gym, stop being active members 6 weeks into the New Year. However, if you watch this week’s video and learn two key factors to keep in mind while you’re on your gym search, I’m confident that you’ll be back here in February bragging about how you’re one of the 1 in 10 who’s made it past the 6 week mark.

Ready to figure out what your gym should have, if it’s going to meet your needs and help you meet your goals?

Tune into this week’s episode:

In the video, I mentioned my Huffington Post article that can help you determine if your group ex class is worthy of your time. To read it, click HERE.

Now that you know what you should focus on before you join a gym, don’t forget to take action!
