Location: Ever wondered if location of the gym can be important too??? Well the answer is Yes… Of course the location is important. The gym you join should have a convenient access by you, I am sure you would not want to travel miles for an hour of workout. The gym should be in an easy reach of you.

Hours: Before joining a gym please make a point about the duration of hours the gym will be open for. The gym you want to join should allow you to workout at your convenient time of the day, for example, it should not force you to come at 5:00am only or else you have to miss your exercise routine for the day. I mean who knows what is gonna be your routine. These days we have flexible working hours and to compensate for the same the gym you join too should have flexible hours.

Child Care: Most gyms these days provide for child care. If you are a mother of a toddler then you should always ask for the child care facilities, such facilities will aid in a stress & carefree workout. Motherhood and fitness should go hand in hand; none of the two can ever be ignored.

Extra Facilities: Know about spas and massages that are to be offered. Try to get every possible detail about it, like how many times a week will you be allowed for spas. What are the facilities for saunas??

Any extra yoga or aerobics class?? Many such extra facilities are offered by gyms and you should know about them before you join a gym.
Equipments: Any gym without proper equipment is a total waste of time and money. So it is always advised to speculate and know if the gym has got proper equipments catering to your needs.

Staff and Trainers: Here comes the most important point that is always supposed to be taken into consideration the moment you think of joining a gym. Any poor staff or unprofessional trainees at gym will give you hard time with your workout.
Members: OKAY!!! I know being judgmental is not nice but we have to certainly do it when it comes to joining a gym. The type of people in the gym always affects your workout. Exercising is something which is at one point is a personal thing but then when we join a gym it is group thing, we workout in groups. While you are running on a treadmill there will be someone on the exercise bike by your side. What if that person just stares at you all the time???

Or just annoys you by interfering with your workout time to time???
I am sure by now you must have understood why the members’ type in a gym is important.

Environment: Nice music, perfect lights and ventilation, good members, cooperating trainers, they all add up to a perfect environment for workout.
Cleanliness: Cleanliness is yet another important part to be thought about. Properly cleaned gym and washrooms ensure good hygiene.
Free Trials: Please make sure that the gym you join offers you free trials. Only free trials is a way to know about the above mentioned points and save your money if anything is inappropriate.

Fees: Joining a gym should not dig a hole in your pocket or make your heart sink every time you workout. You should ask for not more than a year’s membership.

Ask for discounts, remember negotiation never fails.
Cancellations: There should always be scope for cancellations. Make sure that the gym you join should not bind you with any contract or penalize you when you cancel your membership.
