You’ve tried every 24 hour, no-contract gym in town, and sampled the trendy fitness classes or Melbourne favourites from way back. But how do you know when it’s right? When you look around and see radiant gym-goers, singing their praises of their Melbourne fitness clubs, you wonder ‘is it supposed to be like that? Can it really be that good?’.
Yes. Yes it can.
If you’ve been working your way through the fitness centres like you do your underwear, then take some time to stop and evaluate – you might have found the perfect fitness centre for you already and it’s right under your nose. Here’s how to recognise the signs of your dream fitness centre or health club.
It Offers Classes You Love
Going to the gym is great, but the machines and equipment are only designed to replicate the movements you should be getting in the day. A great fitness club will offer you the opportunity to learn a new skill in movement, instead of just the usual pushing and puffing through a cardio/resistance class. A great fitness club will give you the opportunity to learn and grow in your interests – whether it’s boxing, yoga, barre, Pilates, or workshops and seminars – as well as your favourite high-intensity circuit classes or Spinning.
The Community Suits You
The club might be great, but if the staff are unwelcoming and the other gym junkies are making you uncomfortable then you aren’t going to adore your gym the way you should be. Find a club where you can see yourself becoming part of a community around the lifestyle – you’ll get more out of your workout and maybe meet some new people!
It’s Easy To Get To
The best fitness club in the world is worthless if it’s a two hour drive – face it, you’ll never go. Find a club that is well-situated for your lifestyle, and easy to access with public transport or cycling if need be.
It Loves You Back
Some gyms can count on members coming back for the low costs associated, or the location. But your dream club loves you back – you get fun promotional offers from the club, and benefits from partner brands like discounted meals, movies, or other local events. Sometimes it’s the little things, like hairdryers, deodorants, body wash and shampoo/ conditioner, and straighteners in the women’s changing rooms, or complimentary introductory courses for new members, but it can make all the difference.
