What makes a great gym?

Great gyms are committed to supporting their client’s health and wellbeing journeys. They inspire, motivate, and above all leave us in better shape then when we started. Here are a few aspects to consider when evaluating a potential gym:

  • Supports your goals. Whether your goal is to improve fitness, build muscle, or lighten the load, the best gyms bend over backwards to support it. Be it a short and sweet circuit, a large equipment laden floor, or a specialised program they have it covered. Moreover, their talented and experienced staff have what it takes to keep their crew motivated. From supporting those injuries or niggles to a little push when needed, they inspire clients to give each session their all.
  • Convenient. To ensure you remain committed, find a gym that is super convenient. Naturally, geographical convenience is key – be it proximity to home or work, accessibility to public transport, or ample parking. Operational hours are equally important, along with the services provided within them. Finally, consider the frequency and variety of classes on offer, and how each can be fitted within your schedule.
  • Fabulous facilities. As an essential component to many a workout, a gyms equipment and facilities are key. The best gyms present well-structured work out environments, with fit for purpose spaces and quality equipment in good condition. Moreover, the best gyms are fastidious with hygiene, boasting clean, tidy, and sanitised stations.
  • Inclusive. Great gyms welcome clients from all walks of life, spanning all ages, and experience levels. As such, everyone from lifelong members to new beginners should feel equally at ease. Importantly, the best gyms work with their clients, challenging each at an appropriate level. Whether it be through modified movements, alternative equipment, or substitution altogether they ensure each session is optimised for the better.
  • Delivers value. Before signing the dotted line on any member be sure to consider the contact and associated costs. While a membership is certainly an investment in one’s health, it does not preclude the search for value. Review contract terms, rates, and inclusions. Enquire about trial periods, flexible payment terms and any extra perks. Many of the best gyms include a raft of useful extras like workout from home apps, nutritional recipes, complimentary cool down sessions and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect from a good gym?

A good gym should be well equipped, hygienic, staffed with professional and friendly trainers, and offer a wide range of classes, including for those who prefer guided exercise to independent workouts. When shopping around for a new gym, do some trials to get a feel for the place. Take note of some of these qualifiers, and look out for the most important one - how comfortable you feel in the gym!

I'm a beginner. Can I still join a gym?

This depends on what kind of membership you're looking for. Gym memberships are priced on how many facilities you have access to. Lower-tiered memberships can, for example, give you access to the basics and all the classes on offer, while higher-tiered memberships might give you access to things such as steam rooms, pools, discounts on items for sale, and maybe some deals on personal trainers. Think about what you want from a gym and whether any of these services will help you. Then decide which gym is best for your needs.

How often should I go to the gym?

Going to the gym more often will give you faster results, but you need to be careful not to risk injury by overdoing it. Depending on your fitness level, you could go a couple of times or perhaps even three to four times a week. There is no hard-and-fast rule, and frequency depends on your goals, fitness levels and how much time you have to commit.

What should I do at the gym?

When starting at a gym, the array of equipment and number of classes can feel overwhelming. Talk to staff and ask for recommendations based on your fitness goals. Even ask for a quick tutorial on how to use any equipment you're unsure about. You can also try out different classes. Soon you'll have a good grasp of what works best for you.
