I was chatting today with a member of Ladies Workout Express, who has just re-joined us after a spell at a local authority gym. She mentioned that she’d found it quite off-putting at the local authority gym because the faces kept changing, whereas here, she knows she can come along for a workout and see people she knows. That means that she feels very comfortable and welcome, so she’s very happy to be back..
We often underestimate the value of familiarity, and the feeling of belonging, when we choose a gym. Instead we’re impressed by the array of equipment, the pool and the Jacuzzi! Those of course are great, but if you don’t feel a part of the gym, then you won’t feel welcome or valued and will instead feel uncomfortable. After a short while, your attendance will drop off, and your hoped-for results will never come.
So be careful when you’re choosing a gym. Trial it for a few days to make sure you feel comfortable and confident there before you make the decision to join.
At Ladies Workout Express, you can trial us for 3 days for free. Just call 0161 401 0794 to book a chat with one of our friendly instructors.
