8 Things to Consider When Choosing a Gym
A Checklist for Fitness Facilities

We are moving to an apartment complex that has a fitness center which can be used 24/7. The downside is no one there to oversee that everything is done correctly.
the only thing a gym is good for is classes if you like those and maybe for things you might not otherwise have access to (pool, hot tub, steam room, etc.). But as far as exercise, you're better off just staying home - there are so many free resources online, there's no need to pay for a gym.
Very important with the pandemic going on right now.
In today's world cleanliness is high on the priority list!
these are some really great tips
Thanks for the great article! :)
Thank you for sharing how to assess whether a gym is the right fit for you. Not everyone knows what to look for. And, someone new to a fitness center environment is likely overwhelmed by the new experience. This was a very very helpful article.
very informative ...thanks
I have to pay each month. But I can pay several months at one time.
These are definitely things I considered before joining my fitness center and I am so happy, I did, SparkFriends.
