5 Ways a Gym Membership Can Fuel Your Fitness Goals in 2018
December 4, 2017
The new year is right around the corner and you’re already thinking about your New Year resolutions for 2018. What personal goals have made the list so far? Did you know according to StatisticBrain, 21.4% of participants make their number one goal “lose weight/eat healthier” and 5.5% want to “work out more often”? Unfortunately, 42.4% fail at their resolutions each year and 48.4% have “infrequent success.”
We want to help! If you’re going to commit to your fitness goals in 2018, you need a specific plan of action. A gym membership might be exactly what you need to fuel your success. We put together 5 ways a gym membership can help you complete your fitness resolution during the new year.
1.) A Gym Membership Offers You Access to Amenities
A gym offers you everything you need to help you succeed at your fitness goals. Penfield Sport & Fitness offers 2 floors of cardio & strength training equipment, including Technogym circuit training, Life Fitness circuit training, elliptical machines, treadmill workouts, and free weight bodybuilding equipment. In addition to all the equipment you would need for a full workout, the gym offers other amenities as well such as an indoor 89°F SaltPure® Pool, a steam room, and fitness consultations. Members also have access to childcare services, yoga and Pilates studios, and an all-healthy shake bar, among so much more.
2.) A Gym Membership Helps You Meet Like-Minded People
A gym membership allows you to meet people who have the same interests as you. Think about it – we’re often influenced by the people we spend the most time with. If you hang out with friends that aren’t interested in hitting the gym, you’re likely not going to go as often as you might want to. But if you’re with like-minded people who enjoy the gym and are as committed to their fitness goals as you are, you’ll probably show up more often. Group classes might be a particularly good option for you as they focus on a certain activity such as cardio kick-boxing, High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), aerobic dance, group indoor cycling, and core workout, all with friendly people with the same interest.
3.) A Gym Membership Can Help You Feel Successful
Your resolution might be to lose weight, get fit, eat better, or go to the gym more often, but ultimately, fitness improves your overall health. Consistent exercise increases your lung capacity and endurance levels, relieves stress, helps you sleep more soundly at night, have more energy throughout the day, and maintain an overall positive attitude. Once you get into a fitness habit and begin experiencing the results, you won’t want to stop!
4.) A Gym Membership Can Include Personal Training
You can maximize your results at the gym with the dedicated support and instruction from a professional personal trainer. A personal trainer is invested in your success and will use their knowledge and expertise to help you meet your goals. Personal training begins with a consultation and continues with instruction on machines, health, correct form, number of reps, and more.
5.) A Gym Membership Keeps You Accountable
A gym membership can help you realize your responsibility to your health goals. A membership at a high-quality gym involves a monthly, quarterly, or annual fee to help maintain the building, invest in new equipment, and support the staff. You don’t want your membership fees to go to waste. Once you have money backing your commitment, you’re more likely to show up consistently at the gym, ready to get the most out of your investment.
