Questions to Ask before Signing Up for a Gym Membership

Some people were raised in gyms, either because their parents were fitness nuts or they were athletic and participated in sports. For other people, it can be a bit intimidating to join a gym as an adult for the first time. It doesn’t have to be awkward, as most gyms are like MUV Fitness and entail a warm and welcoming community of members who are happy to meet a new friend at any level of fitness who is serious and wants to make their life better through exercise.

Determine Your Goals

Once you’ve decided you’re interested in a gym membership, it’s going to be important to ask a few questions to determine which gym is going to best serve your needs. There are some obvious questions such as what the gym membership costs and how convenient the gym is to your home or work, but other questions are also relevant. The more important yet often overlooked question isn’t a question at all, but is rather your answer to the gym’s question of what your goals are. Some people join because a doctor recommended they lose weight, others want to get in shape to participate in their children’s activities, and still others want to train for a “Run for the Cure” type of charity event. Any of those are valid reasons to get started, but then you’ll find you feel much better with a formal exercise routine and want to continue your gym membership throughout the year.

The bottom line is that different people will have different questions in order to determine which gym will be best suited for their needs. Contact us at MUV Fitness to determine what your expectations are and how we can help fill them.
