If your fitness plans include a gym membership, let’s take a look at how to find a gym that's right for you!
A quick reminder – before you get started with any new exercise plan – it’s always a good idea to talk with your eye doctor. For some people, heavy lifting, straining, or rapid movement could be a concern. Your doctor can help you decide what’s right for you.
Now, let’s check out that gym.
When you find a place you’re interested in, ask for a tour from a staff member – or a friend who already goes there – so they can help you learn the layout, and you can get a feel for the place.
They can show you the different workout areas you’re interested in, and you can see how well the space works for you. For example, are the pathways clear and wide? If you create a mental map of the areas and machines you’d like to use, that can help you decide whether this gym is a good fit for you.
