Advantages Of Bodybuilding Gyms

Multi station home gyms cannot offer what bodybuilding gyms can. How do you decide which types of gyms will suit your needs and goals?

In almost every neighborhood in every city in North America you can find a decent gym. In fact, in a lot of cities you'll find more than one gym less than a five minute drive from your home.

There is a high demand for quality gyms. For most people good bodybuilding gyms have become as popular as coffee houses.

In the past, body builders just needed a bar, some weight plates and a bench. And most of the bodybuilding gyms were dirty, dark, had scary members and were located in the worst parts of the city.

But this has changed. Almost all bodybuilding gyms are bright, open, have brand new equipment (and lots of it) and as mentioned before are located in almost every neighborhood.

A lot of body building gyms just offer one basic membership and for most that's all that's needed.
However, for those who like to pick and choose their own membership package, use it for a brief trial membership, etc. there are a lot of choices.

Before Joining Any Bodybuilding Gyms...

When you do decide to join one of the best bodybuilding gyms around there are a few things that you need to keep in mind. Here are guidelines to help you narrow your choice of body building gyms down to just one:

  • Go online and make a list of all the gyms you can find.

  • Ask you friends if they know of any good gyms.

  • Call several to find the best ones that match your goals and of course the amount of money you're willing to spend.

  • Contact the Better Business Bureau to see is there have been any complaints.

  • When you go to check the gyms out, make sure you go at the same time that you plan on using it. If you don't, you may be in for a surprise. It could be too crowded for you, or there could be loud distracting cardio classes going on, etc.

  • Talk to the staff and ask them questions. If they don't seem like they want to help you or can't answer your questions, then you may be better to look elsewhere.

  • Are the gyms you're looking at going to be open at the time that's best for you? Especially on the weekends or holidays?

  • Do they have the equipment and services you need? Make a list of the type of equipment you use during your body building workouts and take it with you.

  • How clean and maintained is the equipment, exercise mats, change rooms, etc.?

  • Is it too small or overcrowded?

  • Are the staff members qualified and certified? Even if you don't plan on using a personal trainer it's good to know that they are there to help if you need them at some point in the future.

Take a close look at the contract and ask to take a copy of it home so you can read through it. If they say no and want you to sign before you go out the door, just leave.

If they're honest they'll have nothing to hide.

On the contract notice if it contains a list all services that are provided and included with your membership. If the sales person makes you a promise or a special offer you need to get it in writing.

Make sure you know the exact cost of everything that's included in your membership including enrollment fees, extra finance charges, etc.

Do you have full access of all the facilities or do some things cost more?

What's the length of the membership?

Is there a trial period that allows you to cancel the contract and get your money back if you find that it doesn't suit your needs?

Are there any cancellation or refund policies if you move away, cannot exercise for a number of months, etc.

If any Bodybuilding Gyms require that you give them a deposit or your credit card number before you've had an opportunity to carefully read over the contract, just politely say "No thanks" and get up and leave.

As a final note, do not consider joining a gym that hasn't opened. A lot of new bodybuilding gyms offer a special promotion if you become a member a few months before they're scheduled to open.

This is a very shady practice as anything can happen and you may be out all of your money without ever setting foot in the place.
